Accommodation and travel ideas in Naples
Naples sits on the Bay of Naples in Southern Italy, and is one of the country's oldest and largest cities. The coastline is stunning, and visitors can enjoy both the attractions of the city and the splendour of the countryside. Tourists flock to the area for a number of reasons: the history, the art and the food.
What to do
Naples is the home of pizza - so make sure you sample as many as possible on your trip! For the ultimate authentic experience, head to L'Antica Pizzeria da Michele on Via Cesare Sersale. They only serve two types of pizza, use the best local ingredients, and are immensely popular with locals and tourists alike.
If you're a history lover, it's just a short drive from the centre of Naples to Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii. The ruins of the city of Pompeii are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a stroll through the ancient city provides a fascinating insight into the world of the Romans.
In the centre of Naples, there's plenty of art to enjoy. Many stations on the underground system display work from rising artistic talents - buy a metro ticket and spend the day exploring various stops along the line. The best place to start is Piazza Dante. Alternatively, head to Palazzo delle Arti Napoli, an impressive contemporary art museum.
