Naples is the lively capital of Campania. This distinctly southern city doesn’t pull any punches, sprawling out around the Bay of Naples in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius.
You could start your sightseeing in Piazza del Plebiscito, which comes framed by the neoclassical Royal Palace of Naples. Nearby, a pair of castles offers sunset-watching platforms. Or you could always turn your attention underground, where you can tour ancient tunnels and catacombs.
Naples’ main claim to fame, though, is as the birthplace of pizza. That’s thanks to Antica Pizzeria Port’Alba – a pizzeria that started life as a food stall in the 18th century.
