Naples was founded in the 9th century BC by the Greeks. It became part of the Roman Empire in the 4th century BC. Most prominent forms of architecture are from the Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque periods.
Very, very brief outline of the history of Naples.
Naples was the capital of the Kingdom of Naples (1282-1816) and the capital of the Two Sicilies. It played an important role in the Unification of Italy.
The historic centre of Naples is the largest in Europe and is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Many words have been used to describe Naples and its people.
Not always positive.
One thing is for sure. Naples is an amazing city and we are certainly very sociable, hospitable and extremely passionate in everything we do.
Thank you for listening to us.
