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.
