This huge square free from traffic is sparse and surrounded by historic buildings that are too beautiful to ignore. The kids loved running around the huge square (not too many places you can do that in Naples) whilst we admired the majestic buildings and statues.

Accidentally came across this square on a circular walk along by the bay. Nice enough for a couple of pics. If you have plenty time in Naples the go see.
