A local Naplitano fisherman sits in the quiet port of Porto Santa Lucia next to his Vespa scooter one summers afternoon, waiting patiently to see what the still waters have to offer him.
Naples lies on the coast of the region of Campania, often referred to as Italy's diva - an intense, addictive brew of architectural glories, gastronomic brilliance and geological drama. From the hyperactive laneways of Naples to the ethereal beauty of the Amalfi Coast, the region is as varied as it is compelling..Naples, or Napoli, is a sprawling love-it-or-hate-it city theatrically set on a sweeping bay, on the background Mt Vesuvius broods darkly, a reminder of the fate it dealt Pompeii and Herculaneum 2000 years ago. Italy's most misunderstood city is also its finest - an exhilarating mess of crumbling baroque churches, bellowing baristas and electrifying street life. Contradiction is the catchphrase here; a place where anarchy, pollution and crime sidle up to lavish palaces, mighty museums and aristocratic tailors.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
