Things to do here

Located in southern Italy, Naples is one of the world’s oldest cities. Famous for its wealth of cultural estates including two royal palaces and three castles, glorious food like the country’s best pizza, pasta and espresso, perhaps the greatest appeal of Italy’s third largest city is its street life. From the streets of Centro Storico (the historic centre) a hive of activity, to the vibrant seafront with stunning views of Capri there’s so much to explore.
