Spanish Quarters, Naples
Naples, the 3rd city in my 15 days Italy backpacking trip. Naples or Napoli in Italian sits on the southern part of Italy, a city with magnificent coastal view. The people there tend to speak louder and with more hands gesture as compared to Venice and Florence.
First place which i explored in the city after dropping off my backpack is the Spanish Quarters or Quartieri Spagnoli in Italian. My host in Venice did advise me against wandering around in that area but i went ahead.
I did wander off the busy main road and explore the neighbourhood. Interesting the area is covered with many nice graffiti.
I would have to admit that there were no fellow tourists in the neighbourhood during my time there. Not forgetting i was the only Asian in the hood! I definitely stood out 😀
Close to the Spanish Quarters was Via Francesco Caracciolo. A long stretch of long road along the coast which is really beautiful especially during sunset.
I would recommend to take a stroll or go for a run along Via Francesco Caracciolo for the breathe taking view.
