There is a famous quote that says “See Naples and then die,” Because after seen Napoli that is one of the most beautiful and rich with the Italian culture you might have seen in all. This was the first city I got to know back in 2015 in my first visit to Italy , is the city where I got proposed for marriage, the city that my husband proudly call his home since he was raised and born in Naples.
Naples is situated in the South area of Italy, is the third largest city in Italy after Roma and Milan. And even you might read and hear not too very nice things about Napoli I decided to write this blog to show more than what people around the world have to say. Coming from a very small country once I enter the city of Napoli I could feel at home, I remember to see a busy big city full of people, a lot small business around. You can see those old buildings full of history , the city is situated by the Mediterranean Sea so you have this beautiful view of the sea. If you are fan of fish you will love to visit one the restaurants next to the sea and try the exquisites plates (Im not so much fan of fish hehe) but for what i have hear there is not better fish than that one in Napoli. Lets not talk about all the good sweetness around! I’m for sure a fan of sweet hehe. Something I admired and respect of the Neapolitan culture is how proud everyone is to be Neapolitan, proud of their dialect. Once you visit Napoli you might notice a change on their accent and that is because there are still a lot people in Napoli that speaks a dialect. Don’t be intimidating people in Napoli are the sweetest.
