Naples is one of the most beautiful city all around the World, from its culinary history to its beautiful streets. Its whole history is based on the concept of welcoming foreigners from different cultures living side by side.

Naples is a city on the sea. Its enviable geographical position half-way down the Italian coast makes it easy to reach from anywhere in the world. It is placed at the center of the homonymous gulf dominated by the volcano Vesuvius, which is an active volcano. The Neapolitan people fear and worship this huge sleeping giant, which is the symbol of the city.

Not far from Naples, are the famous excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum, where you can step back in time to 2000 years ago.

The Bay of Naples, also known as the Gulf of Naples, is one of the top destinations in all of Italy. Its uniqueness results from a mix of artistic, historical and natural beauty, accompanied by a mild and sunny climate. In the Gulf of Naples, there are many must-see attractions, such as its three islands, among the most beautiful in Italy. Capri, the most glamorous island in the Mediterranean and one of the most visited in the world, Ischia, also known as the Green Island, is one of the most popular for spa lovers, and Procida, a romantic and colourful place.

We are sure after a visit you will love our city almost as much as we do!
