ELENA FERRANTE’S NAPLES
Designed by Gianluca Leone

It’s a city that’s impossible to pin down – full of contrasts and yet incredibly rich in culture. Discover luxury palaces belonging to ancient noble families, and opulent churches from periods throughout Italian history – all against the breath-taking backdrop of Mount Vesuvius. But it’s the locals that make Naples a city like no other…
