Old Naples takes its name from the seaside village in Italy. It has developed from an isolated spot on the Gulf coast accessible only by boat to a sophisticated tropical resort noted for its boutiques, art galleries, restaurants and street fairs on Fifth Avenue South and Third Street. While the Gulf-front mansions and historic Naples Pier are often pictured in the tourist ads, the village is filled with condos and villas and single-family houses from cottage-style to statuesque. Old Naples is at the northern part of a peninsula that includes Aqualane Shores and Port Royal. On the western front is the award-winning beach and on the east side the City Dock on Naples Bay.
