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....
