It's time to go to breathe some sea air!
From Piazza Dante walk all the way down to Via Toledo, the shopping district, cut through Via Imbriani and you'll end up in Piazza Municipio, opposite Naples' Town Hall.
You'll see another icon of Naples: Castel Nuovo, the medieval castle known as Maschio Angioino. Built in the late 1200s, it was called Castel Nuovo to be distinguished from the other two castles (Castel Capuano and Castel dell'Ovo). Rich in history and legends, Maschio Angioino has hosted famous personalities of religious and artistic history such as Boccaccio, Petrarca, Giotto, and the Popes Boniface VIII and Celestine V. Today it hosts the Civic Museum as well as weddings, art exhibitions, concerts and several kinds of cultural events.
Close to Castel Nuovo you'll find Galleria Umberto I, a historic shopping arcade located right in front of San Carlo theatre, named in honour of the former King of Italy Umberto I.
It's time for a sweet break!
Under the gallery you'll find people queuing near the exit to Via Toledo, every day, every month, every year: the credit belongs to Sfogliatelle di Mery, who will fight forever against the rival Pasticceria Pintauro, located close by, battling with sweet sfogliatelle ricce and frolle.
What's the best between the two types? I'll leave the answer to you!
Now walk straight to the beautiful Piazza Plebiscito.
With its 25000 square meters, Piazza del Plebiscito is one of the largest squares in Italy: because of that, it is often used as a location for concerts and large events, electoral meetings, big funerals etc.
