Nestled along the Italian coast is where you’ll find the venerable city of Naples, first founded by the Greeks in eighth century BCE. Though the city is ancient, you’ll find its sights and eats are anything but old-fashioned, as this panoramic port is home to the most restaurants in Italy recognized by the Michelin Guide. After eating your fill, go out and explore Naples’ UNESCO-designated historic centre. With so much to see and do in Naples, each sunny day brings new experiences and adventures to your table. Come and find out for yourself why even Rome’s emperors chose to vacation here.

It was first founded by the Greeks in the 8th century B.C, refounded in the 6th century, absorbed by the Roman Empire, independently ruled as capital of the Duchy of Naples under the Byzantine Empire, gaining independence as the Kingdom of Naples, and then finally becoming capital of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies until the unification of Italy in 1861.
