Situated on the beautiful Bay of Naples, the Southern Italian city of Naples is both a vibrant city full of historic treasures as well as a perfect base for exploring the region. Founded in ancient Rome, Naples is Italy's third largest city. You can visit the National Archaeological Museum, with one of the world's largest collections of ancient Roman and Greek antiquities, to get an insight into the civilizations that laid the foundation for modern western culture. The city is also home to many other museums, galleries and castles with rich history and astounding collections of art and artifacts. In Naples you will find many historic and magnificent churches including the Duomo, also called San Gennaro Cathedral; San Francesco di Paola with its large domes, and Santa Chiara, breathtakingly decorated with majolica tiles and frescoes. The 4th century basilica of Santa Restituta, the oldest church in Naples, has columns believed to be those of the temple of Apollo over which the church was constructed. Climb Mt Vesuvius for a great view across Naples. This dormant volcano destroyed Pompeii in 79AD, but the city has been expertly excavated allowing you to see firsthand what life was like in Ancient Rome. Moving around Naples is simple with public transportation including buses, trams and a subway system. It also serves as a transport hub to many interesting towns and historic locations in the region.
