Naples is not a city that you can visit in one day, trying to admire the main attractions and not to be missed.
This is because it is almost impossible to establish a hierarchy among its many weapons of seduction. The charming beauty of its bay, the magical maze of the old town, the nobility and the simplicity of its atmosphere, the amazing richness of its history make a stay in Naples a unique and particularly exciting.

Naples is a privileged destination for tourism, thanks to the immense artistic heritage made up of churches, museums, streets and squares. A fervent cultural activity with calendars full of events, concerts, shows and exhibitions attracts more and more visitors. But Naples is also an extremely important commercial center with the Port, an obligatory stop on cruise itineraries, the Directional Center and the Nola Interport.
