Fly To Naples, Italy
Set against the backdrop of Mount Vesuvius in Italy’s breath-taking Campania region, Naples is arguably one of the most iconic cities in the country that looks like a boot kicking a ball.
Naples’ historic centre is known to locals as the Centro Storico, and it’s a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In a city where ancient cobbled streets teem with Pizzeria’s (Pizza was invented here!) and Baroque churches line the sky, Naples is the real deal for those of you in search of the real Italy. If you’re looking to escape popular cities such as Rome and Venice, Naples will not disappoint.

See and do
Being a coastal city at the forefront of European history, Naples’s beautiful coastline is one of its major attractions. The districts of Posillipo and Chiaia straddle the coast and still carry signs that showcase the might of the historical Roman Empire.
No visit to Naples would be complete without a visit to the Museo Archeologico Nazionale, which is the largest museum in the world that is dedicated purely to Roman architecture. The museum exhibits a number of fascinating pieces which include artefacts taken from both Pompeii and Herculaneum. The museum is famous throughout Italy for its “secret room”, which houses erotic paintings and sculptures from Pompeii.
Those looking to break with convention and do something that other tourists probably wouldn’t do should explore subterranean Naples. The Napoli Sotterranea, located under San Lorenzo Maggiore church allows visitors to view the underground remains of Roman Naples.
When it comes to food, lookout for restaurants that advertise pizza made in the traditional Neapolitan fashion. That means easy on the toppings and a tasty smattering of tomato, garlic and oregano.
Naples is relatively small compared to many other major European cities and the centre and major sights of the city are easily explored on foot. Roads are prone to heavy congestion, however, the underground system known as the Metropolitana di Napoli provides a welcome to relief to travelling by car. The Metropolitana covers most of the city, and day passes are available for under 4 Euro’s.
