Naples: Vedi Napoli e Poi Muori - see Naples and die.
Before we left for our epic trip to Italy we had a lot of conflicting advice about Naples. Some said you must go there if only for the pizza, others said, don’t go, it’s Mafia country, dangerous, crowded, polluted and there are pickpockets everywhere. I almost considered going there with a guide. In the end, I decided that I feel at home in the world and have a sense of adventure along with my common sense. There was no way I was going to go to Italy without visiting Naples. So, we incorporated Naples into an Amalfi Coast excursion from Rome and needless to say it was memorable.
Naples is the largest city in southern Italy and one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. It is the capital of Campania, situated on the Gulf of Naples with Mount Vesuvius looming not too far.
