This is a large piazza which used to have cars travelling through it. It is now reserved for pedestrian traffic which is mostly headed to the sea views nearby. Not much to see here

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.

The plaza is huge with a few impressive surrounding buildings but just not a whole lot of activity for such a large open area. It was November and a bit rainy so maybe it’s more active in the summer.

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!
