Naples is an urban jungle, and you experience that best in the Sanitá neighborhood. A walk like this, with joy filling the streets, is why I go to Naples. Notice, as I approach, the lady on the balcony dropping a plastic basket to tip the roving band. The “bella chaos” of Naples awaits those who get out and explore. Don’t be too hung up on the broken stucco, the graffiti, and the rough edges…it’s the patina of a vibrant urban life.
This is Day 23 of my “100 Days in Europe” series. As I travel with Rick Steves’ Europe Tours, research my guidebooks, and make new TV shows, I’m reporting on my experiences in Italy, Portugal, France, Ireland, England, Scotland, Germany, Switzerland, and more. Thanks for joining me here on my blog and via Facebook.
