Although modern-day Naples is officially an Italian city, and one of the country's largest metropolises, the city spent much of its life as the capital of its own kingdom. Indeed, from 1282 to 1816, it was the capital of Kingdom of Naples, and also served as the capital of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies until the Italian Unification of 1861. Consequently, the city is blessed with numerous grand medieval and Renaissance landmarks, which symbolise the city's historic maritime importance and status.
A visit to the dramatic volcanic arc of Mount Vesuvius should near the top of anyone's list when they are visiting the Naples area. Just nine kilometres to the east of the city centre, this mountain is now part of a national park and features an enormous crater that has a diameter of approximately 650 metres. The volcano, which is 4,190 feet in height, is technically a volcano inside another volcano, and is estimated to be around 17,000 years old.
One of the world's great former palaces, the Royal Palace of Naples (Palazio Reale Napoli) dates back to the early 17th century and features statues of all the prominent rules of the Kingdom of Naples. The building overlooks Naples' largest and most famous square, the Piazza Plebiscito, and is the home of the national library (Biblioteca Nazionale di Napoli).
The medieval landmark known as the Castel Nuovo (New Castle) is one of the best preserved castles in Europe and has overlooked the city for more than 700 years. However, the current structure dates back to the 15th century, when Naples was under Spanish control and belonged to the Crown of Aragon.
The remarkable religious complex of Santa Chiara has existed since the early 14th century and is a mixture of Gothic and Baroque architecture. It is Naples' largest Gothic church, although the building had to be extensively refurbished after a fire in 1943 and was fortunately renovated in its original architectural style.
The ruins of the ancient Roman city of Pompeii are certainly not a sight to be missed. Close to the Mount Vesuvius volcano, this settlement was once a thriving maritime centre but was devastated after a major volcanic eruption in 79 AD. If you have time, you should also visit the magnificent Amalfi Coast and explore some of the most charming coastal villages in the Mediterranean such as Positano and Minori, or head to the exclusive resort of Sorrento before taking a ferry to the breathtaking island of Capri.
