Due to the high traffic load and time-consuming congestions in Naples city we highly recommend not to book your hotel room in the town center but in the nearer surroundings of Sarno.


Naples is noted for its rich history, art, culture and gastronomy and, in the modern day, the Centro Storico (historic centre) of the city is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. 
Buildings, churches, streets, palaces, ancient fortresses and castles in the sea, as well as natural caves make Naples unforgettable in the minds of all travelers.

Lively markets are a great place to stroll around, full of atmosphere and Italian market banter. For more shopping, visit Piazza dei Martiri, along Via Chiaia, Via Roma and Via Calabritto.

The Galleria Umberto at Via San Carlo is definitely worth visiting, as much for its simply amazing architecture as for the many stores inside. This shopping centre in central Naples has a wide variety of retail outlets trading in the four glass-roofed arcades.


Napoli is famous for Italy’s finest pizzas. Fuelled with oak, ash, beech or maple timber, Naples’ wood-fired ovens turns distinctly thicker and chewier pizza than their thin, crispy Roman counterparts.

And the list of culinary delicacies continues: The silkiest mozzarella, volacnic San Marzano tomatoes, crunchy pane casareccio (dense local bread), local classics like spaghetti con le vongole (spaghetti with clams), the richest coffee, cinnamon-scented pastries and savoury Aglianico wine.


Mount Vesuvius (Italian: Monte Vesuvio) is a stratovolcano on the Gulf of Naples. It is about 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) east of Naples with a height of 1,281 metres. It is the only volcano on the mainland of Europe that erupted in the last 100 years (last eruption was 1944). The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD was one of the most catastrophic and infamous volcanic eruptions in European history. The Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum were buried completely and accidentally discovered again in the 18th century.


The city of Pompeii is in Campania, not far from Naples. Its major attraction is the ruined ancient Roman city of the same name, which was destroyed by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in AD 79. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
