I have to agree the city looks certainly interesting, and it's already on my list of must-see places, but on the other hand urban decay has a whole new meaning down there. I mean, a little bit of clean up won't hurt anyone, and would certainly boost tourism and help to improve its bad reputation.

^It does not look like first world but third world. I believe several advanced countries are in the declining state while several developing countries (especially Asian countries) are in advancing state.

Naples photo threads have a way of making me excited like not other. Such a beautiful city. Are the streets so narrow in most parts of the city, or were these photos taken mostly in the older areas?

I see some grime but then I see mostly breathtaking beauty. What an amazing beautiful city. The architecture is to die for. I love it.

well thank you for the comments. naples really must be seen in person.

i am no expert on the city, i just have a friend who is studying there. while there, i simply walked around, taking in the city's sounds and smells (walking around around 11 am all you smell in the city is the delicious cooking from the housewives' lunches)
it seemed to me that the really crowded streets were surrounding the downtown area. from what i heard (take it with a grain of salt) there are around 1 million people in this area. it is also supposedly the poorest area in all of italy.
looking on google maps will give you a good idea of the maze of streets.

and i am sad that i have no more pictures to share. maybe when i make the same trip next year...the city grabbed me enough to make a yearly trip out of it.

for some reason, it is really sexy... like the narrow streets etc.
I guess some parts of Tel Aviv r somehow similar, yet not THAT dense...
