In and around Naples

Neapolis, the 'new' city built by the ancient Greeks almost 3000 years ago, stands
in a wonderfully sheltered position in the panoramic curve of a beautiful Bay.

Once home to Kings of Naples, and today the chief city of the Campania region,
its status as the modern capital of southern Italy is entirely unofficial!
.
As crowded, grubby and gritty as our Region's main city may be, it no less
fascinating for all that....
