Marco Rossi

Marco Rossi

Ciao! I started traveling around Italy in 2017 and finally I moved here to live, because Italy is the epicenter of art, history and beauty. I will show you Italy from the most interesting sides, will share with you secrets and traditions of this country and will help make your trip unforgettable.

Located on the northern coast of the Gulf of Naples, the ancient city of Naples is a place of exchange between cultures and languages, a place in which every corner and every detail is unmatched Neapolitan-inspired. The Neapolitans regard themselves as a distinct ethnic group, which is evident in language and culture, as well as in traditions and cuisine. The region is considered to be the birthplace of pizza, Neapolitan songs, guitar and mandolin.
