Stroll through Old Naples where notables such as the Briggs, the DuPonts and the city's founders, the Haldemans, once lived.
Originally known as a sportsman's paradise attracting fisherman and hunters alike, it was Naples' pull as a resort town that captivated many famous and important visitors and brought about the nickname, "summerland in wintertime."
