People from Naples are justifiably proud of their spectacular coastline, and so they regularly stroll, jog or rollerblade along the Lungomare to the Villa Comunale, a lovely 18th century park designed by Luigi Vanvitelli. Filled with 18th and 19th century sculptures and monuments, the park is also home to the oldest Aquarium in Europe and a regular Antiques Market, perfect for browsing.
During the summer, frequent open-air concerts are held on the beautiful bandstand, the Cassa Armonica (Harmonic Box). The pedestrian-free sea front offers wonderful views of Vesuvius , the island of Capri, the Castell dell’Ovo and the Castell Nuovo, and Villa Comunale, and is especially romantic as the sun sets. Look out for the ubiquitous padlocks of love that line the promenade.
