Naples – Top Yacht Charter Destination
For the arts connoisseurs, Naples is a treasure trove of the works of some of Italy’s greatest Renaissance painters, including Titian, Caravaggio, Botticelli, Raphael and Bellini. The renowned Naples Philharmonic Orchestra, with its world-famous conductors and musicians, is also a lure, as are modern art exhibitions and the renowned Archaeological Museum. Southern Italy’s most important event for bibliophiles, the Galassia Gutenberg Book Fair, is also hosted here.
naples – The Gourmet Experience
The city is also celebrated for its cuisine. Did you know, for example, that pizza was invented in this region? Neapolitans are therefore excellent judges when it comes to the quality of pizza. Former US President Bill Clinton famously enjoyed a tantalising pizza in Antica Pizzeria e Friggitoria Di Matteo. If your tastes lean to the exotic and unusual, you can try the fried pizza at La Masardona, or visit one of the spots frequented by the locals, such as La Campagnola Pizzeria & Trattoria.
If your palate prefers a fine-dining experience and lavish décor, then Naples can accommodate that too. Try the shrimp in pea sauce – the signature dish at the Michelin-starred Palazzo Petrucci Ristorante, or book a table at L’Accanto – with its spectacular views over the Bay of Naples – and enjoy a delicious lobster and apple salad. Palazzo Petrucci, Il Transatlantico and Il Ristorantino dell’Avvocato are some other recommended options.
