Tourist information on Naples
General information on Naples
Naples is the largest city in southern Italy with its million inhabitants. Mysterious and charming, it will enrapture every visitor with its warm atmosphere and the smiles of those who live there. For the numerous dominations it has undergone over the centuries, Naples is a true crucible of cultures and a treasure chest of magnificent architecture from the past. Watching over the city is Vesuvius, the most famous volcano in the world that, during these years, has been in a silent phase, alternating this with smoke that erupts from its bowels.
STROLLING THROUGH NAPLES
Reaching Naples by car can be very trying, given the chaos of the city’s traffic. We, therefore, recommend that you arrive with Marino buses, which stop conveniently near the station.
The tour of the city cannot leave out a visit to Piazza Plebiscito, its symbol, and Castel Nuovo - better known as the Maschio Angioino. Walking along Spaccanapoli will be a pleasure: the street divides the historical center with an almost geometric precision, traversing what is left as proof of the glorious past of the city.
