Naples, Italy

By Aryaman Sheth, Photography Editor


Naples is a city that has long been overshadowed by numerous great Italian cities such as Rome, Venice, Florence, and many others. Naples, however, in recent years, has grown rapidly, especially at the beaches. Its blue skies and turquoise waters catch the eyes of many people of varying age groups. People often don’t stay in Naples but prefer to stay in Amalfi or Sorrento, which are the most breathtaking and majestic towns nearby. Sorrento is cheaper to stay in. People staying in Naples normally go on day trips to Amalfi, Sorrento, and Capri, an island that, in my opinion, is the best place off the coast of Italy. Capri is extremely expensive to stay in; however, it is the best place to enjoy delicious food and breathtaking scenery. There are cable cars to take people to the highest point of the island; small, little cafes; and shops as well as numerous grottos along the coast. People can take tours of all the grottos as well as jump off on a sailboat to experience the world-famous Blue Grotto! Coming back to Naples is usually discouraged due to other preferable Italian cities; however, it is a must-see destination in my opinion. Nearby are Mt. Vesuvius and the ruins of Pompeii, a small town which a volcano destroyed in 79 AD. Naples is also home to a famous Italian soccer team, Napoli, and houses its home stadium, “Stadio San Paolo.” Naples is a lively place to experience water sports such as diving with sharks, parasailing, jet skiing, and many more. This pretty much sums it up, so do yourself a favor—the next time you visit Italy, go see Naples, even if it’s for 2-3 days. This is one of my favorite cities in the world!
