Naples, a visual introduction


This page provides a link to a recent (March 2016) video produced to promote the (successful) candidacy of Naples to host the 2019 Summer Universiade (World University Games, the second largest multi-sporting event in the world after the Summer Olympics). In less than 3 minutes, the video effectively captures what the city and its surroundings can offer in terms of nature, history, architecture, art, and life. Even if no visit is planned as yet, spending a short time to watch it can be a pleasant and revealing experience.
