Naples on Film

Naples on Film

something intoxicating about Italy. The sights, smells,
textures, colours, climate and effortlessly cool locals – and
Naples is no exception.

Gritty and chaotic, sprawling and shabby yet brimming with
character, Naples is an entirely different beast from the rolling
hills of Tuscany or Florence. We had been forewarned about our five
days here, told that the city’s notorious dumping problem and
suicidal motorists wouldn’t make for an ideal getaway. But we fell
in love with the city’s charm.

This may have been something to do with the pizza. A lot to do
with the pizza, in fact. Naples is said to be the birthplace of the
stuff and it’s as intrinsically linked with it as the ominous
silhouette of Vesuvius looming over the city’s bay. It’s
ridiculously good and we ate five in as many days. Our Airbnb host
enthusiastically pointed us in the direction of his favourite –
“without question the best in the city!” – and he wasn’t wrong.

Aside from carb-induced delirium, the city’s notoriously narrow
streets, the symphony of passing mopeds and washing lines strung
high up between the crumbling buildings made the perfect backdrop
for a few hazy days people-watching and aimlessly exploring in good
company, camera in hand.

This is how our time there looks on film. Until next time Italy,
