Naples

What You Need to Know Before You Go

Naples is raw, Italian passion – you’ll discover maze-like warrens in the Centro Storico, where children play raucous games of football and the mouth-watering aroma of wood-fired margherita pizza lingers. It’s full of surprises – you’ll find castles cast adrift on islands, and the plain façade of the Duomo hides magnificent frescoes.

After exploring grand squares like Piazza del Plebiscito and uncovering ancient treasures at the National Archaeological Museum, you might find yourself drawn to nearby Pompeii, the ancient city preserved for all eternity by volcanic ash. In the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, it’s a chilling and eerily fascinating place.
