This is a famous, must-see piazza in Napoli. The large building is beautifully and is a copy of the Pantheon in Rome. Lots of police around at night so we felt safe. Good to walk around then down to Castelle Dell’Ovo.

This Piazza is surrounded by interesting buildings. Palazzo Reale, Teatro San Carlo and Galleria Umberto I are situated around this vast square. They are worth visiting, too.

Another amazing place in this wonderful City. We literally stumbled upon this huge square by walking up from the Santa Lucia area. It leads to the start of Toledo & all the lovely coffee shops & the Theatre. Simply beautiful!
