Nowhere is Italy's north-south divide more obvious, in some ways escaping the march of time. Do not look for the reserve of the north, the fancy cuisine, the organised driving and modern way of life. Be prepared to experience another extreme - chaos; emotions on display to the world; businesses which have been in families for generations; wonderfully warm and welcoming people; a simple, healthy cuisine, which, based on the freshest ingredients, speaks for itself; football as a religion; a thriving music scene; fabulous shops; and so very much more.
