One of the most romantic and oldest cities in Europe, is also the
largest city in southern Italy. It has some of the world's best opera houses
and theatres, and is often called an open-air museum, because of its many
historic statues and monuments. The area is loomed over
by Mt. Vesuvius and overlooks a marvelous bay, whose beauty has
since ancient times inspired multitudes of artists.
The allure of the landscape, the beautiful islands that dot the blue waters of the Mediterranean like jewels, the energy of a fiery and vivacious people open the doors to that joie de vivre that pervades every inch of this land, whose popular songs and delicious recipes never fade. The multitude of places will excite every type of tourist: from the art and history enthusiast to the nature and sea lover, from the enogastronomy to the ancient traditions.
