The Napoli Unplugged Guide to Naples was written by four women united by a common passion – Napoli! They love to wax lyrical about their adoptive city; their book will make you feel like you’re seeing Naples through the eyes of your best friends. The guide features in-depth coverage of the historic and cultural landmarks and has all of the practical information one might require, but it is written in a strongly narrative style and with the intrepid traveller in mind. Armchair travellers love it too! The stories of Naples and Campania, the area’s history, culture and, above all, its people, is what the authors take pleasure in sharing. Their prose is embellished with over 100 beautifully composed photographs, plein air paintings and hand painted cartography. “Transportive”, the Napoli Unplugged Guide to Naples will have you smelling the pizza and espresso before you’ve ever touched down in Napoli.
Where you want it, how you want it, when you want it!
The NU Guide print version is available at major online retailers and at most major bookshops in London. The eBook is available on iTunes and Kindle.

This looks like all you need to know to get the most out of a visit to Naples… one of my favourite cities.Professor Mary Beard
A wonderful, comprehensive guide to the jewel of southern Italy – filled with charming images, candid descriptions, interesting & quirky facts, it’s an essential on any Italophile’s bookshelf.Gennaro Contaldo
Informative, up to the minute and as lively and fun to read as the incredible city it covers.Ben Hatch
Napoli Unplugged is perfect. A friendly, assured, unintimidated companion for the great city of extremes.David McConnell
I missed dinner because I was so engrossed in the book. It includes history, stories, detailed info on art, architecture, neighborhoods, markets, and more. What I love most are the stories on notable Neapolitans & those they call “spirited SHE-apolitans. So much more than a travel guide, it’s a guide to understanding and loving Napoli, just as these ladies do.Kathy Ayer
What a fabulous book! So much info. This will be a Godsend on our annual hols. And very fast delivery – I only paid for it on Thursday! Thank you all, one very happy customer!Debbie Sewter
Penny, my copy of Napoli Unplugged arrived today, and it is magnificent! The engaging writing style captivates the reader, and the book provides a wealth of useful information. I can hardly put it down! A million thanks to you and your team for creating such an incredible resource. I am going to order a copy for my friend who will be traveling with me to Naples this fall.Melissa Nabbe Matusevich
Totally agree (with Gennaro Contaldo). I haven’t read a Naples Guidebook in a long time because they just don’t get what the city is about, they don’t understand the stories and what they mean to the heart of the city, they don’t capture the present day humans of Naples – but this book does. Kudos to you Bonnie and your team. Terrific book.Melissa Ussery
Napoli Unplugged is more than just a guidebook. It’s an intimate look at the fascinating city of Naples through the eyes of those who know it well. Beautiful artwork, maps, detail, this fabulous resource offers something for every traveler. I found myself absorbed in the descriptions and passion for this ancient city and can’t wait to have this in hand on my next trip to Naples.Jennifer Criswell
I usually go for another well crafted travel series of books for reading a great travel guide when about to go on vacation, but this one is such a fabulous encyclopedic guide to majestic Naples, Italy and the wonderful surrounding area, I would choose this book instead to carry with me, or to research ahead of my visit. Napoli Unplugged is pure treasure! Read the entire review on Goodreads.Susan on Goodreads
