Naples is a picturesque Italian city renowned for its beautiful buildings and its pizza – if you’re a fan of this traditional dish, then you simply must try it here where you’ll delight in its authentic flavours. The city also serves as a hub for many of the most fascinating attractions of Italy, including the destroyed ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, wiped out in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD. Alternatively, you can climb the volcano itself, and see the pretty wildlife of the dormant national park.
Just a short way across the waters, Capri is a stunning island frequented by many high society locals and celebrities, with its stunning scenery and exclusive restaurants proving popular for the rich and famous for centuries. And you can also head to the Amalfi coastline, where the lemon groves line the cliffs to offer up some of Italy’s – if not the world’s – most gorgeous landscapes – be sure to pack your camera. Finally, the nearby town of Sorrento offers magnificent views over the Bay of Naples and great seafood restaurants, along with Limoncello – the renowned liqueur.
The currency in Naples is the Euro. Naples is 2 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT +2).
