Honey! I’m home!! My 10th or 12th trip in a dozen years, yeah, I like this place, a lot. Contrary to the general consensus when asked about Naples (Napoli) by the foreign or domestic.
Highly regarded as an abrasive city, overrun with organized crime and trash, from the people to the actual…but let me tell you, befriend just one person and let it snowball your mind into a world seldom given half a chance by really anyone.
This city has so much history, some preserved and some just built upon, you can literally find Roman columns standing at the base of apartment buildings because the plaster has worn off, its incredible! Art is quite rampant here as well, from Graffiti to Bombing/tagging to the Fine Arts and Theatre…museums, galleries, exhibitions and installations. Then there’s the food, Birthplace of the Pizza, pasta, gelato blah blah blah…
Honestly, if you can get over the stigma and the absolute bullshit reasons from other fools on how this city sucks, you’re in for a treat, Napoli does it like no one else – no holds barred, no judgements passed, come as you are, sit down for a munch and a chat and let the good times roll, there’s tons to be had.
