Every year the AFC travels to Naples, the last vestige of Old Europe. Cafés are full on Monday evenings. Family and friends crowd the streets from morning till night. Children throw confetti in the piazza. Young artists hone their craft drawing antique sculpture at the Academy. Musty used bookshops line the alleys of the university quarter. Laundry sways from the balconies of every apartment. If you don’t know Naples, you don’t know Europe.
About AFC Trips
The American Friends of Capodimonte enjoy rare, privileged access to the most important cultural sites in Naples, the islands of Capri and Ischia, the Amalfi Coast, and other regions of Southern Italy. Every year we visit the Capodimonte Museum, private palazzi, historic churches and more with museum director Sylvain Bellenger and other distinguished art historians. The annual AFC trip to Naples is an extraordinary opportunity to experience the authentic, yet all-too-overlooked heritage of Italy’s fascinating south.
