The spectacular view from the terrace of San Martino (Saint Martin) in Naples, easily reached by funicular cable car. At right are the mountains forming the backdrop to the Amalfi coast, also visible from Naples. The beaches are behind the mountains on the other side. The frescoes in the church were equally impressive. The old stone castle along the harbor is 'Newcastle', in English. "Castel Nuovo" in Italian.

Un très bon point de vue qui nous fait admirer la ville de Naples.Très agréable rendu des couleurs et belle harmonie entre la couleur des toits de tuiles et le bleu de la mer.

and welcome to the site with this beautiful and spectacular panoramic view of Naples and Vesuvius.I like the clarity of the scene with the brilliant light to enhance the beauty and the details of the scene.

well, look who's back!!!
So you were in Italy eh? Nice, very very nice.
I am so looking forward to seeing your photos.
and it all starts with this wonderful view of Naples.
It was only a few months ago that I learned how large Naples was from watching a documentary about it on TV, for some reason I always thought it was a small village type....boy was I wrong!!
When i eventually go to Naples, I'll have to make sure this funicular is apart of the experience.
what a wonderful view you got from up here, also with a warm glowing light on a sweet looking day.
love seeing the Harbour too, with the many cruise ships.
So where else did you go on your trip??

Fantastic high viewpoint showing us a wonderful view of the center of Naples with its harbour and the majestic Vesuvius dominating the whole bay.
Perfect sharpness. Very good depth.
PS: Are you sure we see here a part of the Amalfi coast ? I thought that that part of the Tyrrhenian Sea was behind the high mountains on the top right corner of the photo and thus not visible from in Naples.
Best regards, Paul

The distance between the city and the volcano is giving depth to the composition. The wide angle view is allowing me to see the size of the city of Naples and the volcano in the background. The quality of the light is embellishing the colours. Have a nice dy.

I read i n your reply to Craig what an amazing trip you made. Woow, impressive how you managed to visit so many places. How many kilometers it was? I am Itchy Feet but it is nothing compared to this journey. I am looking forward to seeing the photos. I imagine how many of them you have.
Spectacular view of Naples. Stunning sharpness. Do you know about bigger format allowed now?

From Naples I have a nasty mention, when were being tried to rob our group of tourist.
Have a nice day.

sarà perchè sono italiano, ma questa bella veduta di Napoli mi piace in maniera particolare oltre che per il soggetto per la bella composizione , i colori e l'eccellente nitidezza frutto anche di una bella illuminazione.
Una veduta stupenda che aiuta ad apprezzare questa bella città.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana

a truly fabulous view over this fascinating city and its suggestive companion. I absolutely love the light and the colours that remind me so much of Greece. Marvellous depth and clarity make the view captivating as they help us get a vivid and accurate idea about the architectural character of Naples and about daily life conditions there. You made the most of your impressive point of view. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
