Naples still belongs to its inhabitants, it has not turned into a tacky tourist trap or the playground for the rich and tasteless. The old-city is inhabited almost exclusively by working-class people, youll hardly find a chain there, churches and markets are working places for the community and so on. Very few cities are like that.

That's very true and makes the most of Naples appeal.

Why do all those people have heavy winters coats? I thought that it was typically 15 degrees in Naples during the winter.

Winter in Naples is colder. Sometimes we arrive at 1 degree or less in January and February.

It seems that Rome and Barcelona are usually around 12 degrees in the winter, so I assumed that Naples was even warmer.

In last years winter temperature started to decrease; in the past it was inusual to go under 4°/6°, but now is normal. For example, in this winter, in Rome fell snow, about 5 cm. It was a very rare event for the Italian capital.

Fontanelle graveyard, one of the most ancient ones. This is one of the biggest ossuaries that I know. It was constituted during the 17th century pestilence in a greek cave of tuff.
