Sitting on its eponymous bay in the south of Italy, the city of Naples is capital of the Campania Region and one of Italy's oldest cities. Founded by the Ancient Greeks in the 4th century BC, Naples was integral to the progression into Roman society in the centuries that followed. Hire a car from Naples Airport and tour the city's many historic landmarks. Take in the beautiful 16th century Cappella Sansevero chapel, with its iconic Il Cristo Velato sculpture. Stop off at Museo Archeologico Nazionale for a stunning selection of Greco-Roman artefacts, and head up the Vomero hill to experience the city's Certosa di San Martino, a former monastery that looms large over the city.
Naples prides itself on its amazing food; the much-loved pizza dish originated close to the city in Gaeta. Explore this Neopolitan speciality via the traditional pizzerias down Via Tibunali. For a taste of the city's hustle and bustle make sure to visit Naples' oldest street market, La Pignasecca, and try the cheeses and coffees, and try to snare a bargain from one of the many antique stalls. For a look far back into history, rent a car from Naples Airport and head half an hour southeast of the city to visit the ancient Roman towns of Pompeii and Hercylaneum, which were both preserved by volcanic surges from Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.
