Photos and information for Naples - a peninsula on the southern most tip of Long Beach. Naples was patterned after the Italian city with canals. Authentic gondolas glide along the waterways while others watch from the waterfront sidewalks. Private tours are available by reservation by calling: (562) 433-9595. Tours depart from Alamitos Bay at 5437 E. Ocean Blvd in Long Beach.
Photos and information on the Belmont Shore area of Long Beach along 2nd Street and Ocean Avenue in the southern portion of the city. It, like Naples, was supposed to become a "little Italy" complete with canals. Unlike nearby Naples, the community never took hold. It did, however, evolve into a quaint beach community. It is located near California State University at Long beach.
Tickets are $ 8, available on the day of the event only. For more
