Are your travels taking you to Naples, Italy this month? Great news! There’s a lot to do in Naples in June, and the beautiful spring weather makes being out and about all the more enjoyable. Here’s a look at some of the events going on in Naples this month:
Napoli Film Festival, June 5th-11th, Castel Sant’Elmo
This year the Napoli Film Festival is dedicated to two Neapolitan greats: Totò and Massimo Troisi (known to many Americans from the film Il Postino.)
