Naples is a wonderful city on the sea, close to many interesting sites such as the archeological cities of Pompei and Ercolano and the famous islands Capri and Ischia.
Naples was founded by a Greek colony in the 9-8th century BC, and from then on, it has been the crossroad of several civilizations and an important cultural centre in Europe. Museums, castles, churches, squares, alleys and
archaeological remains make Naples a fascinating city; its historic centre is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
History, art, culture and gastronomy are only some of the aspects of a complex world: light and darkness are the two facets of a city whose metropolitan area is the second most populated in Italy and one of the largest in Europe.
