Are you ever been in Naples (Italy)? If so, what do you think about it?

No, I have never been in Naples but I have heard from my friends that pizza is cheaper in Naples compared to other regions of Italy. :P I don't know how much of that is true, but if that's true, it's a tourist attraction for sure. :P

Also, please remember that passato prossimo in Italian has two equivalents in English: simple past and present perfect.

Present perfect in today's English uses only "to have" as the auxiliary verb.  Unlike Italian, you are never allowed to use "to be" as an auxiliary verb to indicate the perfect aspect of the main verb. In other words, "Are you ever been in Naples?" is wrong and you should instead say "Have you ever been in Naples?".

It’s a “biutiful cauntri “ when the people in charge of picking up garbage aren’t on strike! I was there ten years ago when the waste management crisis was going on and it was really sad to see a beautiful but neglected city.
