The vibrant city of Naples attracts thousands of travellers each year to its historic centre, its hidden treasures and its world famous restaurants.
Just west of Piazza Garibaldi the historic centre starts. Via Toledo which stretches from Piazza Trieste e Trento in the south of the district offers a wide choice of shops, designer boutiques and cafés. To the south is Santa Lucia and the Piazza del Plebiscito.
Just west of this famous Piazza is the upmarket Chiaia, which is home to many elegant bars and cafés which stretch down towards the Mergellina Port.
It is also worth remembering that Naples is home of the pizza. Wherever you are in the city you are never far from the delicious aroma of freshly baked pizza. In 2004 the Ministry for Agriculture issued regulations outlining how a real Neapolitan pizza should be made!
The historic city centre of Naples is the largest in Europe and is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Famous historical sites include the Palace of Casterta. Neapolitan music has been hugely influential and was credited with the invention of romantic guitar and the mandolin.
