Naples (Italy). Considered as one of the most beautiful square in Italy, Piazza del Plebiscito with its 25,000 square meters is one of the largest one in the Country, and is it is today a very popular landmark in Naples. The current shape dates back to the XIX century (during the Napoleonic period) and the name itself comes from October 21st, 1860 when with a plebiscite the local Regno delle Due Sicilie became part of the Regno di Sardegna (Kingdom of Sardinia).
And the “Basilica Reale Pontificia di San Francesco di Paola” photographed here on an early Saturday morning photo-walk around Naples some weeks ago, is probably the most famous building in Piazza del Plebiscito. If you want to really enjoy this place, try to select a moment when it’s not too crowded, walk along the colonnade and visit the Basilica interior, which resembles – and it’s not a coincidence – the Pantheon in Rome.
