After going to Palermo in Sicily, I got that little desire to continue exploring Southern Italy. So, two months after a week in Palermo, I planned a four-day trip with three of my best friends to Naples.
The idea was to visit Naples, known worldwide for its history, music (who doesn’t know Sole Mio?), for being the homeland of pizza and, not to mention, the birthplace of Camorra, the Neapolitan mafia. Apart from Naples, the plan was also to go to Pompeii, an ancient Roman city, destroyed during a major eruption of Vesuvius volcano.

Once a mafia battlefield, Palermo now is cool and charming

After visiting the main cities of Italy, I was missing the Italian islands, and Sicily, especially Palermo and Catania, was on my radar as a priority destination. Finally this year I was lucky enough to go to Palermo with an architect friend who had been to the city before and wanted to return. We stayed for 7 days in Palermo, long enough to know the city, but not to know the island. Palermo is just the gateway to Sicily, an iconic region in Italy and worldwide famous in films like The Leopard (Luchino Visconti) and Cinema Paradiso (Giuseppe Tornatore). While Sicily is certainly a destination to explore more thoroughly, Palermo is a Unesco World Heritage site with a cultural heritage influenced by the Greeks, Romans, and Arabs. The city has monumental architecture, as well as beautiful historic villages and nearby beaches to refreshing your body and soul.
