I leave. I will never forget Via Toledo or all the other districts of Naples; in my eyes it is, without any comparison, the most beautiful city in the universe. – Stendhal
The city of Naples, the provincial capital and of the Campania region, is famous all over the world for its artistic and naturalistic beauties, for its humanity and for the testimonies of its historical past.
According to ancient Greek and Roman historians, the birth of the city is linked to the legend of the siren Parthenope, who let herself die for not being able, with singing, to enchant Ulysses.
The best way to get to know this city is to travel inside it, go into the alleys, discover its colors, smell its scents, listen to its sounds, letting yourself be surprised by the treasures it contains:
Spaccanapoli is the road from the Quartieri Spagnoli to the Forcella district, cutting the city of Naples in a straight line.
