Naples, known in Italian as Napoli, lies on the coast of Italy at the foot of Mount Vesuvius. It’s the biggest city in the south of Italy, and a bustling port with a long and fascinating history. As a holiday destination it offers the visitor excellent food, good weather, a wide range of cultural pursuits, and interesting tourist attractions.
Nestled in a picturesque bay and with the famous Mount Vesuvius towering majestically above it, Naples is one of the biggest cities in Italy. From the ruins of Pompeii and the UNESCO listed urban centre, to the shops on Via Toledo and the breath-taking glass dome of Galleria Umberto I, Naples is a magnificent metropolis with so many sights that you’ll never tire of it. Start your day with strong local espresso to kick your exploration of Naples off with a buzz. Partake in a local tradition and see if you can walk through the two horses on Piazza del Plebiscito with your eyes closed. Immerse yourself in the architecture and art of the city, drop your jaw inside the stunning Duomo and then head to the beachfront or one of the verdant parks near the sea, where you can enjoy a delicious helping of local gelato, while you catch your breath before the next adventure.
Regardless of where you find yourself in Naples, Mount Vesuvius is always visible on the horizon and day tours will take you up close to this famous volcano. At the feet Naples of it lies the equally famous ruins of the old Roman town of Pompeii. Wander through the preserved buildings and streets and see the still visible remains of life in a city that was destroyed by the volcano. After a day exploring either the city or the surrounding sights, you should head to the nearest local pizzeria. Naples claims to be the place where pizzas were first invented, and regardless of them, Neapolitan pizzas are one of the true, gourmet treats of Italy.
