    Naples

    The first impression when you are in Naples is 'dirt', 'chaos', 'disorder'. As you get used to it, you start enjoying the city. If you are brave enough to drive, you will probably notice that the traffic chaos is in fact a super-efficient way of moving along the city. You do not have to panic when are completely surrounded by Vespas or when in a two lane street there are three rows of car (or even more!).
