The large and populous city of Naples still contains some areas where you can observe the charm of the past: small districts sheltered in the Posillipo coast, far from the chaos and noise of the big city, which you can reach by walking along narrow and winding paths that descend towards the sea. The most famous fishing village is Marechiaro, known for the renowned "Fenestella" celebrated in the song by Salvatore di Giacomo. Today the area is mainly visited for its excellent restaurants overlooking the sea, but a short walk down the steps on the narrow path which leads down to the water is enough to see its old charm. The very narrow and steep Gaiola path leads down from Via Coroglio to another place by the sea in Naples: the small beach of Cala San Basilio which can be reached on foot by following an even narrower path through the mythical Seiano cave.
