First of all, Napoli is a real mess when it comes to the traffic! But if you ever make it through the miles of queues you will enter the labyrinth of narrow roads in the center of the city. If you're lucky enough to manage to navigate your car without crashing and even find a parking lot in all this mess, welcome to Napoli!
The old part of the city is full of these narrow streets and shops everywhere. It was certainly worth all the struggling to get in there! Some of the side streets had this peaceful atmosphere and typical italian look.

Hello Fredrik ,
This is a superb street view in Napoli . the composition is great , with the vespas on the right , the man at the right place . Very good choice of the B&W and excellent light magement , and that was not so easy with these strong contrasts .

Hey Frederik - first, yes, that is me on Sporcle! Long time since you left that comment, I know, but I just now saw it.
Second - the shot: a really nicely composed everyday B&W - I love the action implied as the man approaches the bike down the long alley, and your light management works really well, drawing texture out of both the dark and light areas.
