Nooks of Naples

The nooks of Naples came about as a way to describe some of the gems of the city, but I wanted to make sure they were short enough to read in the time it takes to drink an espresso. Many of the nooks turned into the tours, but I selected the following gems because they generally never make it into the guidebooks or because my descriptions add an idiosyncratic twist to any Naples visit:
