Naples Italy Travel Guide

Naples Italy is the third largest city in the country, the town centre is a UNESCO World heritage site with some of the worlds most important archaeological treasures. Over the years Naples has had a bad reputation concerning the Mafia, trash crisis and some parts of the city are impoverished with high crime rates, however if you look even further than that show a little caution, you will find a vibrant city with plenty to see and do.

Naples is a jumping off point to Vesuvius, the Amalfi Coast and the island of Capri so do yourself a favour and spend a few days there.
