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.
