Photographer's Note

This is Piazza del Plebiscito in Naples, named because of the plebiscite signed here in 1863 which saw Naples - for good or bad - become part of a unified Italy. The church you can see here is that of San Francesco Di Paola, which has a concrete dome similar to that of Rome's Pantheon. To the right, just out of sight, is the Gran Caffé Gambrinus, the Galleria Umberto, Teatro San Carlo and the Royal Palace. The square is a short walk to the beautiful Bay of Naples and also has glimpses of the volcano Mount Vesuvius. It is one of my favourite places in all of Naples, and no visit to the city is complete without it.
