Founded by the Greeks in the second millennium BC, Naples is one of the oldest cities in Europe. As Southern Italy's largest city, here you'll find an authentic flavor of Italy in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius. If that mountain sounds familiar, you may know it as the volcano that destroyed the nearby Roman town of Pompeii. One of the best day trips from Naples is traveling to Pompeii and walking through this town preserved in ash.

With its over 2,500 years of history, Naples is naturally home to a diverse range of architectural styles. As you walk around, see if you can identify the influences of different eras and foreign rulers.

If the city's singular style isn't enough to tempt you, then perhaps learning that Naples is famous as the birthplace of pizza will. Visit any of the many local restaurants to try an authentic Neapolitan pizza with pillowy sourdough crust, buffalo mozzarella, and fresh tomato sauce. Finish your meal at a local cafe to experience Neapolitan coffee culture, complete with elaborate barista performance and scientific preparation techniques.

Get to Naples from many major European cities and even global travel hubs via the city's international airport. Alternatively, travel by rail into Napoli Centrale - Piazza Garibaldi Station from cities across the country. Many national and international bus services also provide access to Naples, often stopping at the central train station for easy transfers.
