To visit Naples is to discover a spectacle of history, art, and culture. The city boasts the biggest historic center in Europe: here you can find architectural masterpieces dating back hundreds of years, buildings like the Royal Palace, Piazza del Plebiscito, and Castel Nuovo.
From Naples, visit the ancient ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum: destroyed by the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius more than two thousand years ago. In one of history’s tragic ironies, the burning ash that caused their destruction ensured their immaculate preservation.
For a lighter excursion, you might take a day trip to the the sun-drenched island of Capri or some of the picturesque towns of the glittering Amalfi Coast. Hmm... aren’t we forgetting something? Naples is the birthplace of that crowning achievement of human culture, treasured the world over. We’re talking about pizza! Head to da Michele, where they’ve been turning out perfect margherita pies for a hundred years.
