A 3-week stay in Naples gave me all the time I needed to fall in love forever with that big beautiful city.

It is a sprawling mess and an antic madhouse with art and architecture and culture and history to rival Rome. (And natural beauty that surpasses it.)

A highlight: the walking food tour. Our guide (Silvia) was amazing, the food was the end of the world, and we experienced the city and its people at the street level in the most remarkable way.

Silvia being a proud daughter. (She paused the tour here to take pics of her father’s art exhibit.)
If this bay could talk, the stories it could tell…
