Naples is an Italian jewel complete with a majestic landscape and breathtaking sites. The city’s significant history and beauty landed it on the UNESCO World Hertiage Site list. From Naples International Airport
, travelers can throw themselves into the mix of color and flavors that make this city so exquisite. From castles and forts to museums and palaces, the architectural wonders alone are enough to captivate one for days.
Naples’ major area of attraction is found in Centro Storico. The sprawling labyrinth of history is dotted with baroque churches, pizzerias, underground ruins, and a vibrant nightlife. Charm can be found in the district of Posillipo and Chiaia which features palaces and gardens as well as the Castel dell’Ovo
. The city’s largest monumental palace and a definite must-see is the Bourbon Hospice for the Poor in the San Carlo all’Arena district. These facades of the city are all complemented by looming Mount Vesuvius and flanked by the Gulf of Naples, a terrific spot to go diving and exploring the Archaeological Park of Baiae. There is an abundance of museums capturing the city’s history and culture, and many of them are set up in ancient castles. The medieval Castelnuovo
houses the main city museum and Castel dell’Ovo at Porto San Lucia is where one will find the Museum of Prehistory.
