Wonderful pictures of Naples. I highly recommend people visit - I had a great time 2 years ago. Just look past the dirt and shabbiness of some of the buildings and you'll see a stunning city.

The modern central station





Where do all roads lead?

We are looking back on a city full of contrasts and contradictions











The images are mainly from the center. I did not visit the nobler suburbs nor the modern parts of Naples.

Interesting and unexpected shots of Naples. I didn't realise it would be so dirty and gritty. Is this city perhaps the 'arsehole' of Italy?

Naples, like the beautiful Sicilia, a city of contrasts, edge, excitement.

One of my favourite views is across the Bay of Naples towards Vesuvius.

Naples is really different from the northern Italy; surely it is poreer and dirtier than a good number of european cities.
But I think it was the intention of the author of this topic to show the "less touristic" corners of the city, the less visited, maybe the most genuine.
But if you search, you can find thousands of photos showing the "good" side of Naples, which remains one of the richest city in the world from a historical point of view.

awesome. it's on my short list of cities to visit next month, and is now the current leader despite the warnings of petty crime, poor trash pickup and grit...things that make it even more alluring to me (see sig). plus i've wanted to visit Pompeii for about 30 years.
