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, aka Food Lover’s Odyssey
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.
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.
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!
This looks like all you need to know to get the most out of a visit to Naples… one of my favourite cities.
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, Masterchef, presenter, with Antonio Carluccio, of BBC’s Two Greedy Italians
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. Novelist Jennifer Criswell.
The Napoli Unplugged Guide to Naples is not your typical guidebook. Written for the intrepid traveller seeking a more profound experience, the NU Guide delves deep - deep enough to catch the cultural heartbeat of the city. It's a must-have for anyone with more than just a passing interest in Naples and you'll want to revisit the book again and again, long after your return home. There's also plenty here to satisfy the wanderlust of armchair travellers. Written by four women united by a common passion – Napoli – who love to wax lyrical about their adoptive city, it makes you feel you're seeing Naples through the eyes of your best friends. Their own enthusiasms are multiple: art, archaeology and architecture; history and mythology; music, dance and theatre; food and wine, the islands and the beach - even shopping - and each subject has its narrative moment in the spotlight. The prose is embellished by many beautiful photographs, urban sketches and plein-air paintings by artists who couldn't resist the siren call of Parthenope. Read More Here...
