It’s Holly here with your Naples Weekender, your weekend guide to What’s On in Naples. Each week I wade through all of the events, attractions and activities going on in and around Naples, Italy and give you my top picks for the weekend.
Enjoy and Buona Fine Settimana!!!!
The Main Event!!!
The great science festival, leaves its traditional home of the Citta della Scienza this year, and “enters” the heart of the city in Piazza Plebiscito. The theme for this year will be, as always, very current: the “Frontiers”, a theme that will be brought to this 29th edition in Piazza del Plebiscito and in other locations in the city. In the square a large village will be set up for the beautiful Science Festival and social participation. Read more here…
An exhibition to listen to, touch, sniff and taste; an exhibition for everyone: children, adults, students, gourmands, foodies, art and culture fans, because it’s a collection of modern and contemporary art dedicated to food. Read more here…October 17 to November 1

Holly is an English teacher, working for the British Council, who enjoys crossing cultures, exchanging languages and a good ol' story! Sweet and friendly, Holly always welcomes a good chat. Originally from Southampton in England, she moved to this wonderful city 3 years ago, and has never managed to leave! “Naples has a magnetism that once it gets hold of you, it never lets you go! I’ve thought about leaving a number of times, but every time, the reasons to stay far outweigh the reasons to leave – sun, sea, good food, good wine, fascinating culture and great people – it’s like nowhere else on Earth! I think everyone should visit Naples at least once in their life, but without preconceptions, and should make up their own mind about the place I now call home.”
