Welcome to Naples
Naples is situated on the sparkling Italian coast, in the shadow of the magnificent Mount Vesuvius. It has the highest concentration of historical sights of any city in the world and is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities – it’s historic center has gained UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Naples is loved for its vibrancy; a city of drama and intrigue whose faded romance speaks of both grandeur and squalor.
From ancient Roman artifacts to the preserved cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, Naples is the historic capital of Campania and is loved for bearing the last vestiges of the ‘real Italia’. Living rooms spill out onto the tiny lanes, colourful washing hangs from windows and kids play football in the street. * In 1830 the world's first pizzeria, Antica Pizzeria Port'Alba, opened its doors in Naples. * Naples was founded by the ancient Greeks in the second century BC
