Italy is a land of contrasts. Each region has a unique character that distinguishes it from other areas of the country. The division between the northern and southern parts of the peninsula is quite clear. The conventional boundary line runs slightly below Rome. As you move towards the bottom of the Italian boot, the northern steadiness and elegance gradually give way under the onslaught of bustle and chaos. The gateway to the untamed Italian south is Naples. Guided walking tours are the best way to discover the unconventional atmosphere of this place. Check out in our article what you can expect from a visit to Naples.

Naples – three thousand years of history

As you begin your tour of the capital of the Campania region, you should know that this is an ancient city founded in the 8th century BC by the Greeks. Over the centuries it was part of the Roman Empire, an independent principality, the capital of the Kingdom of Naples and then of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. As a port city, it played an important role in the region during each of these periods. Merchants from all around the world settled here, palaces of the mighty were built, including several magnificent castles: Castel Sant Elmo, Castel Nuovo and Castel dell’Ovo. The Royal Palace, the cathedral, the San Carlo Theater, the Umberto I Gallery, and Pompeii, which lies nearby, are also hugely impressive and worth visiting. Travellers wishing to experience the unique charm of Naples must see the Underground Naples and Sansevero Chapel, which houses a magnificent 18th-century sculpture called the Veiled Christ by Giuseppe Sammartino. Lovers of architecture should also wander under the richly decorated cloisters of the Santa Chiara Church. Another place, with a completely unique character is the Spanish Quarter – make sure you visit it as well.

Naples – a tour for Italian cuisine lovers

One of the key elements of Italian culture is delicious cuisine. During your stay in Naples, therefore, it is essential to find time to taste local specialties. The capital of the Campania region holds a special place on the culinary map of Italy. Its most iconic dish is pizza, which is distinguished by a very thin, “flowing” dough. The main theme here is minimalism. Italian masters are able to charm customers with just a thin layer of tomato sauce, a little cheese and a few basil leaves. Neapolitan cuisine, of course, is not limited to pizza. Pasta and seafood dishes are also worth trying. Among the most interesting are Ragù alla Napoletana – Neapolitan-style stew, often served with pasta, Spaghetti alla Puttanesca – with tomatoes, olives, anchovies and capers and Parmigiana di Melanzane – baked eggplant layered with tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese.
