History and useful information

A mixture of sadness and liveliness, colour and noise which are all part of the Neapolitan character make this town special and quite unique. It is one of the oldest cites in Europe, founded by the Greeks in the 7th century BC. and conquered by the Romans, then later in the 11th century held by the Normans, the German Swabians, the French Angevins, the Aragonese, the Spaniards, the Bourbons, and the Napoleonic interlude, right up to the unification of Italy in 1861. Foreign domination has left its mark in the works of art, the character, the cuisine and the language. Naples is enjoying a splendid revaluation, and buildings closed for decades have been re-opened to the public. Naples has regained its reputation as an art centre, thanks to its fascinating old city centre, its museums, art galleries and churches. Trips to Naples should be organized according to the individual taste of the visitor. Interests: - the Greek, Roman, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Neoclassical periods - the historical centre with its churches, palaces and handicrafts - underground Naples, sacred Naples and the old quarters. - the Archaeological Museum, the Capodimonte Art Gallery, Royal Palace, St.Martin’s Charterhouse, San Carlo Theatre, Castel dell’Ovo ( Egg Castle ), Castel Nuovo ( New Castle), and St.Elmo Castle.
