Roman History Preserved
The spiritual home of pizza
Naples, a city in southern Italy, sits on the Bay of Naples. Nearby is Mount Vesuvius, the still-active volcano that destroyed nearby Roman town Pompeii. Dating to the 2nd millennium B.C., Naples has centuries of important art and architecture. The city’s cathedral, the Duomo di San Gennaro, is filled with frescoes. Other major landmarks include the lavish Royal Palace and Castel Nuovo, a 13th-century castle. Naples is Italys third city after Rome and Milan has traditionally been the mere launchpad to the nearby Amalfi Coast, or the archaeological wonderland of Pompeii. Naples has its own airport and Naples airport transfers offer convenient transport from the airport into the city or beyond.
Until now, Naples hasn’t managed to entice city breakers to wander its narrow spines, peer into its historical churches or even stay long enough to wolf down a slice of its legendary pizza. The Neapolitan miracle is that even a cheap slice of margarita pizza from a touristy pavement restaurant in the old town, all thin slivers of dough with hot tomato sauce and wedges of buffalo mozzarella, tastes better than most pretender pizzas you’ll find elsewhere. For the very best pizza, there’s Pizzaria la Notizia on Via Michelangelo da Caravaggio, which staunchly hangs onto its reputation as the world’s best pizza; or “in the know” joint Trianon.
Stunning Oceans And Enchanting Villages
But, we don’t want you to get the wrong idea about this mesmerising place. It is not just a tour of history come to life. There is so much more to see and do. For instance, you would be losing an incredible chance if you did not take a trip down to Cinque Terre. It is a wonderful little town perched on the edge of the coast with dazzling views of a diamond ocean. If you want to experience it in all its splendour, rent a boat in the harbour and take a trip along the coastline. There you will find private beaches, where you can drop anchor and go for a swim in one of the world’s most beautiful stretches of water. Explore Italy or all its wonder and then head back to your luxury rented villa to relax by the pool, under the shade.
