You haven’t lived unless you’ve been to Naples: this is the saying that lives in Italy when speaking of the birthplace of Pizza and one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities of the world. Naples, found in southern Italy, north of the famous city of Pompeii and a few hours south of the country’s capital, Rome, has been throughout history a center of culture, art and cuisine although it is today a striking and fascinating hub of contradictions. Wild and hectic and yet full of history and beautiful architecture, Naples will surprise you on every corner, with a city center that is dense, dark and intoxicating, with ancient Greek streets full of scooters, shrines and secret hidden treasures. Things you won’t want to miss while in Naples will be a visit to the Market in the ancient city gate of Porta Nolana and the city’s other best-known street market, ‘La Pignasecca’. The National Museum of Archeology is found in Naples as well as one of Italy’s oldest opera houses, the great ‘Teatro San Carlo’. You can take a Pompeii and Naples city tour or take a short trip to the outskirts of the city to visit the Castle and Museum of Capodimonte.
