2013-02-08 17.28.14

Naples once again is in the top ranking. This time from WalletHub: Naples has been ranked #1 for 2017’s best beach towns to live in for quality of life.
Hold on, it’s not done yet!
Naples has also been ranked #1 by Coastal Living for beach towns with the highest quality of life.

Living in Naples for more than thirteen years now I can certainly agree for the quality of life: pristine landscaping (and yes despite we had a hurricane two months ago) pristine beaches, wonderful selection of restaurants, boating, golfing with more than 100 golf courses, art and culture with many venues.
