About Naples, Guide and Top Tourist Attractions
(Naples, Italy)

Located in Campania in Southern Italy, Naples rests on top of the Gulf of Naples and is very near Mount Vesuvius. Naples used to be a Greek trading centre and offers a wonderful Mediterranean landscape. With over a million residents, Naples is one of Italy's most populated cities.

Visitors coming to Naples will enjoy walking around the city's narrow streets. These crowded streets are full of old churches, markets, museums, and galleries. Travellers will also delight in the city's various restaurants, bars, and cafés offering hot and sumptuous meals after a long day of touring.

What to do in Naples

Southern Italy is full of hills, forests, and mountains brought about by the country's very active volcanoes centuries before. Naples is bordered by a bay which overlooks the Procida, Capri, and Ischia islands and these can be reached after a short ferry ride. The city centre is full of markets, restaurants, cafés and shopping centres, which are a delight to food lovers and shopaholics. Art lovers can also visit the city's numerous galleries and museums to get a feel of the city's old and rich history.

Tourist Attractions

Architecture lovers can visit the central piazza and marvel at the Duomo and the Chiese dei Girolamini, a Baroque church. Travellers wanting to immerse themselves in the city's Greek and Roman history should visit The National Archaeological Museum of Naples. This museum contains a unique collection of Roman and Greek artefacts and antiquities.

Travellers can also have picnics in the Via Floridiana, a public park. Another must-see spot is the ruins of Pompeii, the city buried under volcanic ash during the 79 AD eruption of Mt. Vesuvius.
