Siamo due amici di vecchissima data. Roberto lavora in uno studio di ingegneria mentre Giovanni si sta per laureare in (website hidden) piace vivere la città e siamo felici di farlo con nuove persone :)
Roberto and Giovanni were incredibly cool hosts. They invited us out one night to have drinks and then Roberto made us dinner and we ate a typical Neapolitan meal! They were extremely helpful and always gave us advice when we needed it.
Soggiornare da Roberto e Giovanni è stato molto piacevole. Sono gentili e disponibili e a casa loro ci siamo sentiti come amici in visita piuttosto che ospiti. La sistemazione è spartana ma ha tutto quello che serve, persino dei lussi come l'aria condizionata. LA zona è ottima: in pieno centro, siete a pochi passi da quasi tutto quello si può vedere in città. Napoli è una città vivace e la viuzza su cui si affaccia la stanza non fà eccezione, ma ottimi infissi renderanno il vostro riposo comunque piacevole.
We only spent a single night in Naples, but had a great time with Giovanni. While travelling Italy, staying in the old town in Naples was, unexpectedly, one of our favourite experiences. It was extremely "authentic"--few tourists, just lots of friendly people (who were happy to help us despite our complete lack of Italian), amazing food, and barely controlled chaos. Giovanni made us feel right at home, giving us great suggestions and joining us for a drink in the evening.
If you've never been to Naples before, your first impression might be that the old town isn't completely safe, and it can be a little scary. But after just a few minutes of wandering the streets you'll realise how wonderful and friendly everyone there is. Just make sure to watch for traffic.
Staying at Roberto and Giovanni's flat is pretty much like staying at your best friend's place. They are warm and kind people, always doing their best to make you feel at home. On our first day Giovanni cooked some pasta for our lunch, and having dinner with them became a regular thing during our trip. Our second night we had the pleasure of enjoying the BEST PARMIGIANA EVER, cooked by the guys as they invited friends over. They made us feel part of it as the whole dinner was vegetarian and their friends were just as nice as them. The following nights we got invited to traditional Napolitanean places to eat, like 'Da Nennella' a unique experience in Naples which, we reckon, you need to be local to be able to find and enter. They're always full of smiles and funny stories, very respectful of the private space and organised. On top of that you get to stay in a very central place, very comfortable, clean and near all that you could need.
Naples is a city that grows in your heart day by day and staying in this place makes you wish you could stay for a very long time :)
Thank you guys for making our trip to Naples an unforgettable experience. Now you have two new friends in Australia you can count on and will always welcome you in their house.
Estuvimos tres noches en su casa y la verdad que nos hicieron sentir como que estuvieramos en la nuestra. La casa esta situada en una de las mejores zonas y la ciudad nos encanto. Nos facilitaron muchisima información y muy buenos lugares para salir.
Nice stop in old Napoli!
Roberto & Giovanni are really nice and welcoming.
They wanted us to feel at home, which was really nice.
Their place is not so easy to find in the small streets of the historical area, but it's worth it!
Highly recommended place.
Roberto is a very nice and helpful host. He gave great advice and even called a cab for us to get to the airport at 6am! The room is nice and location is good. Check out Sorbillo for some great pizza
Sostare da Roberto e Giovanni è stato meglio di essere ospiti a casa di amici! Appena arrivati ci hanno invitato a pranzare con loro e i loro amici! L'ospitalità, disponibilità e simpatia sono le prime cose che ci vengono in mente pensando a loro! La casa dispone di tutto il necessario ed è perfetta per chi non ha grosse pretese, ma tanta voglia di divertirsi e rilassarsi al contempo! posizione centralissima (a piedi si va ovunque!) e dispone del wifi! noi siamo stati i loro primi ospiti connazionali e ci siamo trovati benissimo! per un'altra visitina a Napoli, ovviamente andremo nuovamente da loro! Consigliamo senza alcun dubbio!!!!
Walking into the old palazzo where Roberto lives, you feel like you are in a movie about Napoli. It is an incredible feeling to be right in the center of a city whose history reaches back until the greek era. With Roberto’s tips we managed to dive into the lively city of today. We asked him about the best places to eat and drink, and writing this I already miss the good kitchen of southern Italy. In his flat we felt like at home. He and his friend are really nice and helpful people and gave us a warm and friendly welcome. When I come back to Napoli, which I hope will be soon, I definitely will contact him again. Thanks for the nice stay.
Pasamos tres noches en el apartamento de Roberto. La experiencia fue estupenda. El apartamento es muy acogedor y está situado en pleno centro de la zona más interesante de la ciudad. El mayor aliciente es el propietario, Roberto, quien nos dio valiosa informción de la ciudad y nos atandió con gran hospitalidad.
