Naples, a city of art, takes the form of an amphitheatre on the sea with Vesuvius, the coastal mountains and the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida, and Capo Miseno as its landmarks. Located at the centre of the Mediterranean sea, the main town of the Campania Region and capital of Italy’s Mezzogiorno, Naples extends over an area of 118 square km and has a population of about 1,000,000 inhabitants.
In the last few years Naples has become one of the favourite destinations for all those Italian and foreign tourists who love spending their holidays in cities of artistic interest. Unlike cities in which art is stored in museums and daily life happens on the streets, Naples’s distinctive mark is its folclore: people living and working among the artistic beauties of the city.
Come and see Naples! Visit its monuments, the traces of many foreign dominations, the Greek townplan, the Roman ruins, the Medieval architectural heritage, its churches and castles. Enjoy its works of art, from Renaissance to modern times.
