When in Naples, you should seize the opportunity to visit Pompeii. Situated to the south of Naples, this city gained fame for having been destroyed and buried by an eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Today, it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Italy, boasting numerous interesting and, at times, eerie attractions.

Do & See

The historic centre of Naples, with its splendid palaces and its popular and lively working-class districts, is now on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Naples also boasts an underground city, as well as its famous panoramic views. Moreover, this hospitable city is marked by contrasts and popular traditions, such as the annual miracle whereby San Gennaro's 'blood' becomes liquid in front of the eyes of his followers. Naples is famous throughout the world primarily because of pizza (which, you'll discover, only constitutes a small part of the rich local cuisine) and popular music, with famous songs such as 'O Sole Mio'.
