Why visit Naples?
A city of organised chaos, with legendary history, incredible architectural and cultural heritage and beautiful natural landscapes, Naples is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Italy, and the third biggest city after Rome and Milan. It is located in the south of the country, in a region called Campania, of which it is capital.
Naples is steeped in history, and around every corner you'll find impressive castles, churches and palaces with legendary stories to tell. Even if you don't visit inside the Castel dell'Ovo, the Duomo, the San Francesco di Paola Basilica or the Royal Palace of Naples, just wandering around the picturesque streets is enough to enchant any visitor.
It's not just Naples that's full of charm: the entire region is home to countless fascinating places to visit, making the city a great base for day trips to Pompeii, Capri, Amalfi, Sorrento, Positano and Mount Vesuvius.
After all this sightseeing, you're bound to be hungry. What better way to finish off a day of exploring than indulging in typical Neapolitan cuisine at a traditional local restaurant? This is, after all, the birthplace of pizza!
