SEE NAPLES AND THEN..

written by Dave Mitchell

Ostuni città bianca

The most full and rich squares in Naples is the historic Piazza Plebiscito a semicircular square overlooked the fantastic old Bourbon Royal Palace and the neoclassical facade of the Church of San Francesco di Paola.

The square seems to be the meeting point of all artistic and natural beauties of the city, infact here is a short walk from the Spanish quarters with his bed sheets hung out to dry, the historic Galleria Umberto, the Teatro San Carlo, and also a glimpse of the sea.

From there in just two minutes you can walk to the beautiful promenade Naples wich offers one of the most beautiful view in the world complete of the view on Castell dell'Ovo the most ancient castel of the city, the view of Capri Island, Posillipo and Vesuvius.

Walking down the see it is also possible to visit the public gardens Villa Comunale desired by King Ferdinand IV of Bourbon in an attempt to imitate the "Tuilieres Parisian” and to afford him and the Neapolitan nobility a place to stroll, to meet and quiet.

The ideal time to take a walk on the promenade is at sunset when the colors transform the city and locals on the Riviera di Chiaia and Borgo Marinari invite to aperitif. Continuing along the seafront you will reach Mergellina where you can eat the best seafood restaurants in town.
