Vedi Napoli, e poi muori? Oui, mais pour voirVenise, mourez d'abord. See Naples and die? Yes, but to seeVenice, die first. '
I won't say another word about the beauties of the city and its situation, which have been described and praised often. As they say here, " Vedi Napoli e poi muori! See Naples and die !" One can't blame the Neapolitan for never wanting to leave his city, nor its poets singing its praises in lofty hyperboles: it would be wonderful even if a few more Vesuviuses were to rise in the neighbourhood.
