roma a las afueras tiene pequeños poblados medievales increibles y tiene mas de 240 iglesias , no unicamente tiene monumentos en el centro historico , ay pequeños borgos que cuentan con arquitectura de todas las epocas

Sin embargo Nápoles tiene monumentos importantes de todas las épocas, y medieval también porque con los Anjou y la Corona de Aragón era, tras París, la ciudad más poblada de Europa.
El turismo de masas no se guía por criterios objetivos. Aquí en España es muy popular a nivel turístico Praga, a mí me parece magnífica pero sobrevalorada. Nápoles me parece más completa y más importante a nivel arquitectónico, pictórico y escultórico. Es incomparable ver las obras de Cosimo Fanzago, Caravaggio, Sanmartino, Queirolo...
En España es muy famosa Nápoles entre los estudiosos, no entre el turismo de masas. Y eso que nosotros tenemos otro aliciente a la hora de visitarla, nuestra historia común, pues era la ciudad más importante del imperio español, la más poblada, la joya de la corona.

Thanks for the images pellicano!
The Reggia di Caserta is "one of the most perfectly logical creations in architecture", a masterpiece of world architecture, and to many the most amazing reggia (royal palace) in Europe...beside the fact of being the biggest one
I guess that FranciscoC was referring to the fact that naples has also many many greek ruins and archeological remains, the underworld and so on...while rome is in some extent a little bit "younger", even if we're talking about ,any millennia for each city...

This is not properly a church, but the Fontanelle ossuary could be very interesting. Some religious functions are still celebrated during halloween period (festa dei morti - dead recurrence - in Italy).

Really amazing pictures, Yuri, the light is kind of "metaphysical"!

Of course underground Naples is too important to be ristrected in classification as "churches" of "monument": it simply deserves full publication everywhere, people must know the gorgeousness of this city!

Another picture found by Bartol0, Santa Maria del Carmine Maggiore basilica`s campanile and modern skyscrapers in the backyards:

Some other picture of this magnificent bell tower taken from Wikipedia:







and a last one about the bucholical and very peaceful cloisters, Naples is a city of interiors: behind the narrow ancient streets you can find thousands of cloisters and courtyard full of nature and art! Not to talk about the interiors of the palaces, of course...

Naples... the Queen of Mediterranean

Gracious city!

You Italians, tell me please: Has been currently Naples' mayor good for the city? I mean the last one wasn't so well as I wished.

I'm some 1000 km away from naples (Milan), so I don't know exactly how the situation is...my guess is that is somewhat better than the previous, of course...from what I saw, he's trying to create a peatonal alleway to link Naples to its see...but I let my fellows Neapolitans talk about it/him!
