This is all surrounded by beautiful landscaping and a mix of modern and traditional architecture that nods to Naples’ European roots.

Head to Marilyn’s if you’relooking for of-the-moment  European fashion, curated by Marilyn herself. Then, stop into Petunia of Naples to browse clothes and accessories from emerging indie  designers such as Eva Franco. For the most splendid resort wear, try Back of the Bay or Jean-Pierre Klifa.
