To create something beautiful one must be in a stimulating place, perhaps this is why writers, poets, painters, musicians have passed in this place.

Eating well

The food takes in Italy and especially so in the South, a social value. Lunch is not just a meal, it's a ritual, one of the important moments of the day. Family meals are the moments when everybody gets together; on vacation it represents sharing the treatment that is normally reserved to family with friends. Maybe it can be as simple as a plate of pasta with tomato sauce or long complex and sophisticated as the sauce but the pleasure of living intensely this time of day is the same.

Then find the right coffee is a sort of pursuit of perfection. There are the ones that have found the secret in “moka”, which has over thirty years of honorable service, others in the roasting or in the mixture of coffee, others in the water of a particular fountain and those who have all these things together plus some mysterious secret that he will never reveal to anyone. It does not change if coffee is made at home or taken in a bar, it may be a simple coffee but it must be a good one, or rather it must be the best available at that moment.

Understanding the culture of food is difficult and complex, time-consuming learning, trying, great feasts but above all the predisposition to mental a well-being.

The Sorrento peninsula is one of the places with the highest concentration of starred restaurants in the world. The tourist has definitely contributed to the evolution of this excellence, but this result was also possible because of the deep cultural roots of the area and the possibility of using only raw materials.

Being a gourmet in practice is very difficult, because besides the most famous restaurants there are an infinite variety of inns, taverns, pizzerias that could excite even the toughest critics: the tradition and the high quality of raw materials is sometimes expressed at their best in simple traditional dishes or in pasta shops that here are all exclusively handmade.

One could dwell long on the dishes, wines, products of the earth and the sea, but perhaps the best advice that can be given to understand what the "eating well” means, is to invite you to spend a few days here and try personally the Mediterranean diet.

Visiting Naples means plunging into a scene of extraordinary beauty and complexity: 2,500 years of history represented and reconstructed by artistic and architectural testimonials of great value that, in the urban material, intersect, overlap and offer visitors the chance to build their personal path and a real baggage of knowledge and discoveries.

Every corner of the city contains works of inestimable artistic and historical value. The museums have some of the most important and most valuable collections of works of art and archaeological treasures in the world. Welcome to Naples, city of art magnified by an extraordinary architectural setting and landscape, from its sea of ​​many colours, to the walls of the antique palaces, but also a city with a long culinary tradition.

From the city center daily you can head to either a museum, a street, a square, a monument, or stroll along the largest ancient center of Europe, a true open-air museum, declared a UNESCO heritage site. Palaces, churches, streets, ancient fortresses and castles in the middle of the sea, but also natural caves and places full of mystery and mysticism that make Naples a memorable stop for any traveler.
