Naples & South Campania
How can anyone live without visiting Naples? It is like no other city and one that should definitely be explored. It seems to represent the very essence of the South, encapsulating its differences, emphasising its charms and intoxicating its visitors to the point of addiction. Dating back to the 2nd millenium B,C, famous landmarks, active volcanoes and roman towns, nestle within this southern city.
Italy's north-south divide is noticeably obvious. In contrast to the reserve of the north, the fancy cuisine, the organised driving and modern way of life, be prepared to experience another extreme - chaos; emotions on display to the world; family-run businesses which have been passed down through the generations; wonderfully warm and welcoming people; a simple, healthy cuisine, which is based on the freshest ingredients, all speaks for itself. A region where football is a religion; boasting a thriving music scene; fabulous shops; and so much more to discover.
Naples is special, and that's a fact.
