The South of Italy, with Napoli at its innermost centre is different than the north in a myriad of ways, most of them peripheral but a few touch a deep inner chord involving dignity and resentment.

It is a world of its own, rules by laws similar but discrete from the rest of Italy.

The sun is shining fiercely, the sea is all around and never far, the food and the wine are of deeper, more concentrated flavours and the people are simple, kind and on the level.

When I look at the map of Italy, in the north most city names are familiar even if I have never been there, but the names on the south of the map are mostly new to me, so every night I chose the next destination just by the sound of the name as it is rolling off the toungue.

One can hardly miss. Every place is a gem even if some more obvious so than others.
