Naples is Italy’s third largest urban centre. It is a city worth visiting for its vibrant mix of traditional and modern culture and its culinary history. As the place where pizza was first created, the Neapolitans are still the world’s best pizza chefs. They make the art of pizza production into a piece of contemporary street theatre.
The city and its airport have too often been merely a conduit means to reach the nearly offshore islands of Capri or Ischia and the magnificent Amalfi coast to the south but it deserves to be explored as a place in its own right.

Naples or the area around it has a history going back to the later part of the second millenium BCE and the early first millenium BCE when Greeks first came and settled along the shores beneath Mount Vesuvius or on the islands in the bay. As a place with the name Naples or Neapolis, new city in Greek, its foundation dates back to Greeks from Rhodes creating a walled city there in the early part of the sixth century BCE.
Nowadays, the historic centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has fine buildings from the Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque periods. Its main square called Piazza del Plebiscito however was built approximately 200 years ago. With the phenomenal architecture of the Basilica of San Francesco di Paola and the Royal Palace, on either side of the Piazza, this is one of Europe’s finest public spaces.
The star shaped Castel Sant’Elmo, the fortress dating back to 1275, has fantastic views over the city, along the coastline and to Mount Vesuvius. Any visit to Naples must include the nearby ancient city of Pompeii, another UNESCO World Heritage Site, and if time permits, a visit to Heraculaneum as well, both of which were destroyed during the last great eruption of Vesuvius in 79 CE. The volcanic lava both destroyed and preserved the ancient cities till their rediscovery in the mid-1700s. The Naples National Archeological Museum houses the finds from these sites.
Neapolitans will tell you that they make the world’s best cup of coffee and the city is well known for its wonderful cafés as well as its fine restaurants, serving exquisite Italian cuisine.
From the city, visits to the offshore islands and along the Amalfi coast can be arranged.
A stay in Naples should also include during the opera or ballet season a visit to see either at the Teatro di San Carlo. It is Europe’s oldest still existent opera house. It is rightly renowned for its astounding architectural beauty and its exquisite interior decoration is certain to give you an unforgettable experience.
