Naples – Enjoy the history and other treats
The largest city in southern Italy, Naples, offers its visitors the perfect combination of a buzzing city life and tranquil enjoyment.
In a city located by the dazzling blue Bay of Naples and the Vesuvius volcano, the old saying goes boldly: “Vedi Napoli e poi muori!”, see Naples and die. Even though Naples has a colourful reputation, one should not consider this as a threat. Neapolitans just think that everyone should visit their beautiful home city and witness its beauty. This truly does not sound too bad of an idea.
In Naples, you can, for example, get to know the ancient treasures in the Naples National Archaeological Museum, follow in Elena Ferrante’s footsteps in the narrow alleys or hop in a funicular to see the sophisticated neighbourhood of Vomero. The busy harbour of Naples is a departure point for ferries to Capri, and the historical excavations of Pompei are also close by.
The nights of Naples invite you to the coastal promenade to admire the sunsets and enjoy the local foods and wines. The competition between pizzerias for the tastiest pizza is tough, but one thing is clear: the best pizzas in the world are baked in Naples.
