Bella Napoli

Charles Scicolone (March 08, 2017)
Michele and I have been visiting Naples since 1970. To us, it is the most interesting and exciting city in Italy and we were happy to return recently.

What brings us back again and again is the city’s dramatic beauty, its ancient layered history, the colorful people, and the incomparable food.  But with so much to see and do, our favorite Neapolitan pastime has to be just walking through the streets and enjoying the city as it reveals itself to us.

Vesuvius, like a sleeping giant, dominates the view of the bay and calls our attention with the changes in the weather, the light and the time of day.  In the streets, magnificent architecture, albeit crumbling in places, surrounds us.  The people are warm and welcoming, and always helpful to visitors and the musical Neapolitan dialect is a pleasure to hear.  

The food is superb!  Who can resist a perfect pizza, the freshest seafood, or pasta with the finest tomato sauce.  Plus pastries, like the incomparable sfogliatella, crackling crisp on the outside with a warm creamy filling within.  Not to mention the best coffee anywhere.

We will never tire of Naples and all it has to offer
