NAPLES NAPOLI, the center on a rainy day

A day in Naples, in the rain during the last weekend.

Naples (Neo-polis, the new city) is one of the oldest cities in Italy and the third largest polis after Rome and Milan.

The inner parts of the city were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. Naples was for many years the core of its own kingdom, the city even has its own language which is a mixture of Greek, Latin, Italian and Arabic. The people seemed friendly and busy, perhaps the Camorra encourages tourism as an external sources of funding.

Naples - a city of contrasts, today's cityscape is quite heterogeneous. Renovated churches, crumbling old buildings, narrow streets, wide roads and lots of construction works. Naples is well worth to be visited.

The Castel Nuovo at the center of the old town







The port of Naples, also a NATO military base. The Vesuvius lurks in the background and waits for his next chance. In the foreground some archaeological excavations.

Nice shots! The rain gives an even more gloomy look to the city. Some of the 80s architecture is fascinatingly ugly. Almost like hong Kong.

Thanks everyone

Visiting Naples is a really fascinating experience - a city of contrasts. I've been in Verona last year and that was as super touristy destination. Naples is still different and offers some of old-school feeling.
