Welcome to a city like no others… Naples
Hi guys! We are an enthusiastic group of SSC Napoli fans and one of us will take you to the best football experience in Naples!
People use to say that Naples is not Italy, and once you are here, it won’t be long until you understand why. Naples legacy has given it a strong identity. It used to be one of the most glorious cities of the country in the past, at the time of the Realm of Naples. The city kept traces of this rich history and you will be able to witness it in many places around.
But Naples is also unique for its very particular location, at the feet of the Vesuvio and on the edge of an immense bay. Despite the terrible eruption of 79 AD, Neapolitans are very attached to the Vesuvio and you will often hear refer to it in the supporters chants in their renamed Stadio Diego A. Maradona ( previously San Paolo Stadium).
In the historical context of the partition of Italy between North and South, Naples has built many rivalries with cities that are still emerging when it comes to football nowadays. The venue of Torino, Rome, Milan and many other teams are just as many occasions to fill the Naples stadium and show their attachment to their city for the Neapolitans.
And believe me, when it comes to showing their affection to their club and city, Neapolitans are possibly one of the very best at doing it. Both curvas are full of hyper dynamic fans. They won’t stop jumping, singing, cheering and supporting their team before the game is over, and even after ! Neapolitans are known to be one of the best supporters of the continent, and being the visiting team is never an easy situation at the roaring Stadio Diego A. Maradona. Funny how it sometimes resembles its famous nearby volcano…
We will meet in the city centre of Naples, where we will have plenty of places to see. From the centre we will walk together in the Spanish Quarters reaching the Largo Maradona from where will be possible to see the famous murales Maradona and live a special experience around the area. You will get a memorable experience, for sure! The city centre of Naples is simply amazing and full of cultural interests. The old town is the best place to get to know the city from the inside. You will understand that everyone, here, talk about our King: Diego Armando Maradona.
Before heading to the Maradona Stadium, we will stop for a cup of coffee or an original pizza, if you want. Once we get there, you will enjoy a jewel of stadium. The Maradona Stadium is a true beauty, inside and outside. Once the game is about to start, get inside the stadium and meet the Neapolitans supporters, famous all over the world for the passion and the crazy love for the team.
So, we will be ready for our match in the stadium that had the privilege to have the best player in the world on his pitch: Diego Armando Maradona.
