“See Naples and die…” was a phrase coined by the Bourbons who felt that no one’s life would be complete without visiting this spectacular city.

Naples sits proudly in a beautiful bay against the stunning backdrop of the formidable Mount Vesuvius. It is like no other city in the world: the juxtaposition of the splendid architecture and historical treasures with the sometimes dilapidated, chaotic metropolis is both mind-boggling and fascinating. The Neapolitans welcome visitors with open arms – this is the home of the pizza, after all.

After a few days dodging Vespas and discovering hidden treasures in this cosmopolitan city, you can easily escape to the idyllic Amalfi Coast or hop on a boat to nearby Capri.
