Welcome to Naples! June is the perfect month to discover our region and the beauty of its islands which have reawakened in a blaze of colours and sounds after the lethargy of spring and the silence of winter. This month, Where heralds in the summer of 2016 with a rich calendar of events and suggestions for all tastes! The dominant colour of this issue is blue, like the sea that washes up on the shores of several of our region’s most magical places including the Park
of Gaiola (page 10) and Positano, the coast’s most picturesque town with vertiginous houses tumbling down to the sea in a cascade of lemon groves and flowers (page 14); blue like the colour of the flags awarded to Campania’s seaside resorts, serving as certification of their environmental quality. Luckily, there are also all manner of exciting events taking place this month for those who decide to stay in the city, including, for example, the last dates of the May of the Monuments event (page 34). And don’t miss the new city maps by Where Naples. The maps are free and you can find them in your hotel (ask your concierge), or at ‘Welcome to Naples’ information points around the city. You can also download the Where Naples App to plan your travel diary! Happy holidays!
