You can’t forget that The Village is also home to Naples’ one and only Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, as well as Naples’ Best Crepes at the Le Petit French Café. The adults aren’t the only ones enjoying a day on the Bay. After the children pile the flavor on their Ben & Jerry’s ice cream cone, the north fountains are a popular spot for a splash, the best way to cool off on a hot Naples day!
