Art & Culture

A city of sun, sea, food and culture, Naples boasts a millennial history dating back to ancient Greece, from which it absorbed its first influences. Passing through the Roman Empire, the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, Italian unification and the economic boom of the 1960s, nowadays Naples represents a unique concentration of history, art and beauty.

One of the city's main sights is the 13th century Cathedral of San Gennaro: it houses the crypt of San Gennaro, the city's patron saint, as well as the precious ampoules of San Gennaro's blood, which - according to tradition - are liquefied during the procession of the patron saint.

When you think of Naples, it is impossible not to recall the outline of Piazza del Plebiscito, one of the largest in Europe: in the center stands the imposing Basilica of San Francesco di Paola, built in 1816 in the neoclassical style, while the Royal Palace and Palazzo Salerno stand on either side.

Casting its severe shadow over the city is Castel dell'Ovo, an ancient fortress built on a small island in the middle of the Gulf of Naples and linked to numerous legends. The castle offers an unmissable panoramic view of the city and the Gulf.

History and culture enthusiasts should not miss a visit to the National Archaeological Museum, one of the most important museums in the world for the richness of its collections, which include archaeological finds from the ancient cities of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Stabiae.

For those who really want to immerse themselves in the history of this region, a visit to the archaeological site of Pompeii, one of the best-preserved Roman cities in the world, is a real must. The visit allows visitors to admire ancient houses, temples, theaters, thermal baths and streets that still preserve the traces of the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D., which destroyed the city and its population but preserved the finds in an amazing way.

Not only history and culture: to discover the true soul of Naples you must taste its flavours! This city boasts a gastronomic tradition that has no equal in the world, with typical and internationally famous dishes: first and foremost pizza, but also fish dishes, like fried food, soup and pasta with clams. Don't miss the desserts too, such as babà, pastiera and sfogliatella.

Seize the opportunity to discover the treasures of Naples: a priceless heritage of culture, art and good food!
