Vacation in Naples
Let’s go on vacation in Naples. The historical town that has been declared by UNESCO a World’s heritage site. The town is full of authenticity, vibrancy, passions, temperament, extraversion. What else can one possibly ask for?
It’s time for you to explore Naples. Quaint alleys, underground passages, majestic monuments, melodies, colours, delicious traditional pizzerias.. all mark the town of Naples!
Naples.. an outdoor museum
Let us begin with Spaccanapoli, the narrow central road that divides the town in two.
Stop to see the fabulous Duomo and the chapel Capella Sansevero. Walk to the south of the city to reach the notorious Castel Nuovo! Did you know that this medieval castle has hosted not only kings but also many artists in the past?
During your walk in the old town, you will realise that it is very densely populated! You will be surprised by the architecture of the houses, many of which “hide” roman ruins in their cellars!!
San Gennaro – San Gaudioso & Napoli Sotterranea
Yes, you got it! The time to explore the underground has arrived! I recommend you to pass by the San Gennaro and San Gaudioso catacombs! But, of course, do not leave out Napoli Sotterranea, a wonderful tour 30 meters below the ground. You will wander around impressive spaces of water reservoirs which also served as bomb shelters during the World War 2..
Palazzo Reale, a stunning collection of artworks and furniture awaits you. From there, take the road to Teatro di San Carlo to see frescoes that still the thunder. The exceptional acoustics of the theatre, on the other hand, make it the best place to watch opera in South Italy!!
The coastal road Santa Lucia hides big surprises! Cross on the opposite side to find yourself `at the peninsula of Megaride, where lies the oldest Neapolitan castle, the Castel Dell’ Ovo, built in 12nd century!! The view of Vesuvius will enchant you!
Finish your vacation in Naples with a visit at the breath-taking Roman town of Pompeii!! Despite the fact that the town was buried in volcanic lava from Vesuvius at the 79 A.C., the rescued landmarks are absolutely fascinating! The Amphitheatre, the Agora, the conservatoire and the Villa of the Mysteries stand out!
Neapolitan flavours is an absolute must. Pizza marinara, salsa napolitana, zuppa di pesce and for dessert, the traditional sfogliatelle and baba with rum! Exceptional raw materials that will rock even the most demanding palates!
Vacation in Naples! An artistic and historic journey that gives rise to an everlasting adoration! It is no coincidence that the magic of Naples has been the theme of so many songs!
