30 & 29, Art Director & CEO Founder of NSS Magazine, Naples - Italy
Naples, the city that is shaped by centuries of history, the relentless Mediterranean sun and an overwhelming passion for the good life! With a buzz that lingers long after the sun has set, infused in every bar, club, restaurant, gallery, museum, and boutique, Naples is an ancient but truly vibrant city. Who better to reveal its best side than the creative duo of Walter D'Aprile and Vincenzo Schioppa of nss magazine?!
Come for the architecture but stay for the comfy beds! That's our motto! If you're having trouble choosing between contemporary design and classical elegance, this design hostel located inside an historic building may well be for you! It also doubles as a bar, exhibition space and function center. Which means there's always an excuse for staying up a little longer!
From hot stuff to odd stuff, from today's finest brands to vintage classics of old... all at the same location. This is Naples' most popular vintage market, located just 30 minutes south of the city center by train. Definitely worth the trip for that once-in-a-lifetime find!

Come to Bar Nilo for some of the best coffee in town, but stay for the atmosphere! A virtual pilgrimage stop for football fans, this unassuming historic café in the center of town is even more famous for its relic of Argentine football hero, Armando Diego Maradona than it is for its espresso. Maradona was – and still is – something of a local hero ever since he played for S.S.C. Napoli back in the late 80s/early 90s. A symbol of Neapolitan resistance against Northern domination... So come and pay hommage to one of the greatest footballers ever to play the game!
