A Romantic History
Naples, one of the oldest cities in the world, has a romantic history of invasion, war and retribution that dates back to 2,800 years ago. A capital city of the Campania Region situated on the province of Naples, it sits on the coast of the Gulf of Naples between the powerful presence of Mount Vesuvius and the craters of the Phlegraean Fields.
Originally founded as a Greek colony in the 8th century, this city was transferred from one ruling power to another throughout the turbulent periods of its history. As a result, it is now known for its rich cultural and historical heritage as beautifully reflected in its local cuisine, music, art and architecture.
