Coldwell Banker Around the World
Summer is upon us, and for those of you lucky enough to be spending time in Italy this summer, we encourage you to consider visiting Campania, a region on the southwest coast of Italy. Home to both the city of Naples and the Amalfi coast, the region boasts stunning coastlines, ancient ruins, and the infamous Mount Vesuvius, the eruption of which decimated the ancient city of Pompeii. The remains of the city are just one of ten UNESCO World Heritage sites in the region that you can visit. For culinary buffs, you will not want to miss the pizza in Naples either. Neapolitan pizza has earned UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage status, making it an absolute must when you visit the third largest city in Italy.
“Naples is a cultural melting pot where art, history, and food come together to create a unique and authentic experience,” declares Alessandro Moscariello, the Broker/Owner of Coldwell Banker 24RE. He continues, “whether you’re strolling along the historic streets of the old town, enjoying the panoramic views of the Gulf of Naples from Castel dell’Ovo, or indulging in the city’s world-renowned cuisine, there’s something for everyone in this vibrant and dynamic city.” So please, envision yourself exploring the streets of Naples, basking in the sunshine in Positano, and indulging in as much pizza as humanly possible as you read on about one of the newest Coldwell Banker locations in Italy!

Share a little known but interesting fact about the area/region: Everyone knows that coffee is one of the most famous elements of the Neapolitan tradition. The suspended coffee is an ancient and generous Neapolitan custom consisting in leaving the Bar paid for a coffee for an unknown person who, so, although not being able to afford it, can, however, drink it. A great connoisseur of Neapolitan things like Luciano De Crescenzo has happily grasped the spirit of suspended coffee: “when a Neapolitan is happy for some reason he decides to offer a coffee to a stranger because it is like offering a coffee to the rest of the world”.
