“Piazza del Plebiscito is one of the symbolic places of Naples. Located in the heart of the historic center, at the end of via Toledo, with its surface of over 25 thousand square meters it is the largest in the city and one of the largest in all of Italy. Bordered on either side by the famous colonnade, it is laterally closed by the prefecture building and Palazzo Salerno, the Royal Palace and the Church of San Francesco di Paola. Piazza del Plebiscito is located in the heart of the historic center of Naples, between the end of Via Toledo, one of the main shopping streets of the Neapolitan capital, and after Piazza Trieste e Trento, and the Lungomare. It is customary to divide Piazza del Plebiscito into two parts: the first at the foot of the Basilica of San Francesco di Paola follows a semi-circular shape, while the other, which borders at the end with the Royal Palace and is determined in the short sides by the curtains of the Twin palaces have a more rectangular shape. In the centers of the two areas there are, isolated, the two equestrian statues of Charles III of Bourbon (initiator of the Bourbon dynasty) and his son Ferdinand I, made by Canova and his pupil Antonio Calì. Famous is the game of crossing the blindfolded square or with eyes closed in a straight line, starting from the door of the Royal Palace, which is located right in the middle between the two equestrian statues, but practically nobody succeeds in the enterprise. From Casa Carmela you can reach it in a few minutes by walking.”

“ITINERARIO MONUMENTALE E CASTELLI [35] - BASILICA DI SAN FRANCESCO DI PAOLA The square where once the troops of the Kingdom of Naples used to stand, is crowned by the Basilica of San Francesco di Paola. It was built on the structure of the Pantheon in Rome, at the behest of King Ferdinand I, as a votive offering to San Francesco di Paola, who had interceded for him to return to the throne of Naples after the interlude of Murat.”

“Nasce anticamente come tarallificio con i classici taralli sugna e pepe, vera prelibatezza per il palato; dal gusto deciso e unico. Da provare assolutamente. L'azienda si è poi evoluta anche nell'ottima pasticceria e gelateria con "Casa Infante" raggiungendo senza dubbio la migliore forma di esaltazione delle più note prelibatezze dolciarie napoletane e non solo.”
