Historic centre of Naples

“See Naples and die!” – some say that it was Johann Wolfgang von Goethe who coined the phrase, and the phrase can be found in his ‘Italian Journey’ (1786-1788). The historic parts of Naples maintain the stereotype of narrow alleys with noisy scooters, honking cinquecentos, bars with life football maches on their screens and summer heat. The historic part also shows decay, plaster falling from the wallsand street markets with super cheap Chinese imports.
