The most Italian of cities

Conjure up any image of Italy, and you can find it in Naples, arguably the most Italian of cities. Pizza, sunshine, scooters, football, and some of the world’s greatest art, all in the shadow of Vesuvius, mainland Europe’s only active volcano. Settled by the Greeks around 470 BC, the city has had an often troubled past, and the present is not without its troubles either – however, the infamous rubbish problems have been resolved, crime figures are down, and tourism is on the up.

Aret a Palma

Naples nightlife 'behind the palm'

Naples nightlife 'behind the palm' Editors' Note

Aret' a' Palma being Neapolitan for ‘behind the palm’, this small but stylish place is – not surprisingly – located by an incredibly tall palm tree on a quiet square right in the centre of town.

Well designed, with a comfortingly long bar, Aret a Palma gets pretty crowded inside at weekends. The only live music is when owner Alan Wurzburger gets inspired to take his guitar out; otherwise DJs spin a soundtrack of jazz and world music so loud that it’s audible even if you sit at one of the tables out on the piazza.
