Making the Best of Your Trip to Naples
Arts & Culture
During my six months living in Naples, I felt I truly had fallen in love with the region of Campania in every way. I had so many new experiences every week and loved every moment. Even after my time there, I felt there was even more to discover. Naples is filled with endless activities and food to try making it one of my all-time favorite places to travel. From its friendly people, unique landscape and architecture and of course the best pizza in the world, Naples is one of the best spots to visit in Italy.
