Napoli is a city that feels both romantic and untamed! A perfect destination for travellers who enjoy visiting places of artistic, cultural and historical interest. This is one of Europe’s oldest cities with modern life and history clashing in every street. Chaotic but full of character.
Napoli is a famous destination around the world because of the ruins of the ancient nearby towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum which were destroyed in 79 AD after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
This city has a 2,800 year-history and is full of historical buildings and monuments, medieval castles and classical ruins. A city with very religious population proud for their 448 Catholic churches. Napoli is also famous for its piazzas and palaces.
In 1995 the historic centre of Napoli was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Naples lies on the homonymous gulf on the western coast of southern Italy, with its port being amongst the largest Italian and Mediterranean ports, between two volcanic areas, Mount Vesuvius and Campi Flegrei.
From Napoli, you can easily reach the islands of Procida, Capri and Ischia for a day trip and you can visit Sorento and Amalfi which are situated south of the city.
Neapolitans have a very strong sense of integrity, and they are very hospitable, deeply religious, food loving, passionate, proud, lively people always on the go, living their lives to the maximum, addicted to the intensity of every day. They have very strong ties with all family and friends and the families gatherings for the Sunday lunch in a non-negotiable matter.
Napoli is more a city of style than a city of fashion. But that said, Napoli, is famous for its handstitched Kiton suits, detailed perfectionist tailoring for fashion elite matchless male elegance. Handcrafted Talarico umbrellas are also a trademark of the city.
After Rome and Milan, Napoli is the third largest municipality in Italy and the capital of the region of Campania.
