Being over 2,000 years old, the city of Naples has much to offer visitors. Described as the Italian version of New York, it seems to have a bit of everything. The old centre is crammed with ancient churches, markets and cafés and the southwest has its broad boulevards and majestic squares, while the relative calm of the Vomero district provides a natural balcony with views across the city and bay to
the dormant volcano Mount Vesuvius and the ruins of Pompeii. The museums, royal palace,
churches, castles, theatres and the opera are just a fraction of what is on offer in this lively city.
