Naples Tours: a Unesco heritage site on a stunning bay
If you think that by visiting Rome, Venice, Florence you’ve got the idea on what Italy is about, you might not know enough about what Naples has to offer. Due to the country’s history and geographical features, each city in Italy is a world on its own, with its own culture, architecture, food, traditions, dialect, weather, landscape. And this is certainly true for Naples.
Just about 200 km from Rome, you’ll be in the south. Naples is one of the biggest and most important cities in Italy, the most developed in the south, but most of all, it has a heritage of an indefinite number of historical treasures: in fact, Naples not only was an important and strategic city for thousands of years being founded about 500 years BC by the Greeks who named it Neapolis (new city) and becoming later a main cultural centre of the Roman Empire, but it was also then the capital of Southern Italy for centuries before the whole peninsula became one country, under Spanish and French domination. Proof of this can be seen with your own eyes in the numerous monuments, in the architecture, the royal palaces (in Naples and Caserta) and also in the local dialect, quite different from the standard Italian language due mainly to Spanish and French influence.
