  • Big and beautiful antic square in naples. Architecture is a charm to look at. Best part: there is a game that a local taught me about this place: Try to walk blindly over the square (with a friend guiding you of course) and try to end up inbetween to two statues. If you succeed you will have a lot of good fortune! Spoiler alert: It is not easy at all!
  • beautiful historical buildings. A great photo opportunity for any photographers. a great place to sit with an icecream soaking up the atmosphere.
  • Magnificent open square with a crescentic building on one side and a massive multilevel block building structure on the other side creating a very unique feel of open space. Via Toledo with its plenty of shopping options nearby...
  • When the moment comes I must come here to relax and breath. This essential and majestic square by the sea, between the Royal Palace, Basilica di S.Francesco di Paola and S.Carlo Theatre is magical at night light and bright by day. You can simply stroll along, go skating or cycling and just in two minutes walk you can taste a coffee at Gabrinus bar
  • Nothing that will change one's life, not bad either, worth a quick visit if time allows it.
