Naples

Overall Score

3.1

Neapolis – One of Italys greatest cities with a rich and interesting history, full of great attractions, parks, palaces and museums, It is in close proximity to the famous Vesuvius volcano, which was destroyed by Pompeii and Herculeanum.

A large area of the Old City of Naples, literally breathing history, is made up of the remains of the ancient ancient Roman city, the city gates, The ruins of ancient walls, cathedrals, cathedrals, churches, castles, historic buildings, four large parks, many galleries and museums, as well as residential quarters. These historic monuments can easily create a dozen fascinating thematic tour routes: the Middle Ages, the Roman-Greek, the museum-gallery, the museum-gallery, the religious, the Rococo, the Baroque, and the Renaissance. The streets of Naples, abnormally pockmarked with coins, are full of the kind of local crowd that makes Naples unrepeatable. Local politics, often criticized and misunderstood, is incomparable to anything else. The view of a visitor to the city is truly exotic: The streets are dominated by gypsies, criminals, gangsters, and bangers; the local language, with its shrill sounds, is heard from everywhere. You seem to be somewhere in the East, but another unrepeatable aspect of the Apennine Peninsula opens up to you.

The number of architectural monuments in Naples is so great that it is impossible to tell you all of them. Of all of them, the Palace of Kiev stands out in particular. Built by architect Domenico Fountain in the 17th century as a division of King Philip II, the palace was enlarged and redesigned in the first half of the 18th century, and the last restoration took place in 1994 during the World Summit of the Great Smerka. Since 1804, the National Library of Naples occupies the main floor of the palace, with its unique papyrus from Herculeanum among its treasures. Among the many other rooms of the Korylins halls that make up the Museum of the Korylins Artistic Antiquities, the Hall of Hercules is a special place to visit, and the Crone and Central Halls, with works by artists such as Gherherino, Tiziano, Massimo Stancione, Matthia Preti, Andrea Vaccarro, Luca Giordanno and Spanioletto.

On the opposite side of the Royal Palace is the Basilica of San Francesco di Paolo, built by Ferdinand I in gratitude for the restitution of the lost kingdom. The main value of the church, built for 29 years, according to the plan of builder Pietro Bianchi, is the altarpiece, carved in solid stone and richly decorated with paintings and many sculptures.

An equally important attraction of Naples is the castle of Masciano Agnègeno, built by Charles I of Agnègeno. Construction, begun in the 13th century, lasted for two centuries and was completed by Alphonsus I of Aragon, The castle then became an important cultural center for famous writers and artists, such as Pietrarch, Jacquot and Boccolcio. The dynasty added to the architecture of the castle in the form of the two towers – the Old and the Middle, and the splendidly integrated into the ensemble of the Triumphal Arena, which contrasts with the darker towers by its whiteness. Inside the castle, it is worth visiting the Chapel, the Palladian Chapel, which has a crusading vault and a square plan, the City Museum and the Barracks Room. The City Museum exhibit features 14th-century frescoes, paintings, sculptures, and many pieces of silver.

The homeland of pizza – Naples, it is a city unlike any other city in Italy for its beauty and its identity.
