The historic city of Naples is the third largest city in Italy and has seen human population from the Neolithic period. The port here is one of the most important ones in the Mediterranean and the city is full of historical landmarks and churches and of course, there’s Mt. Vesuvius in the distance. It’s hard to miss this legendary volcano that erupted in 79AD and destroyed Pompeii. As people can now climb up the slopes of Vesuvius and look down the crater, Naples is indeed one of the most anticipated places to visit in Italy. Some of the places to see here include Pompeii, the Naples National Archaeological Museum, Castel Nuovo and Cappella Sansevero. Naples’ main square, the Piazza del Plebiscito is an amazing place as you can see the Royal Palace and the Basilica Royal here.
