Welcome to Naples
GENERAL INFORMATION & VISA
Naples is the capital of the metropolitan city of the region of Campania. Located along the coast overlooking the Gulf of Naples, the Parthenopean city spread from the slopes of the silent Vesuvio to the streaming Campi Flegrei.
Naples is famous for its folkloric flair and ancient traditions. Loud, funny, melancholic, volcanic and generous, nevertheless full of the desire to live.
Its historic centre, considered the largest in Europe, was declared an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995 and the city’s streets hide ancient churches, museums and theatres.
Naples is charming at times irresistible, it is a city that seems to like extremes: narrow, dark alleys intersect avenues shaded by palm trees, baroque salons and sanctuaries, chapels stand alongside fashionable clubs.
Few European cities are as surprising, and few are as misunderstood.
