Naples Pictures - A Virtual Tour of Neapolitan Delights

By

Don't tell anyone, but Naples is one of my favorite cities in Italy. Naples is full of life, which means it's also full of problems. But don't let them stop you; there's lots to discover in Naples.

Here we present some of the scenes in the life of a city that mythically started as Palepolis, born from the womb of the mermaid Partenope. The Ancient Greeks colonized the place and called it Neapolis.

Naples is a layer cake of culture--the historic center of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and new excavations for the subway outside the Castel Nuovo will bring more of the ancient city's origins to light.
