Beautiful gorgeous Naples
Naples, known in Italian as Napoli, is the capital of the region of Campania on the western coastline of Italy. It is the third-largest municipality in Italy, after Rome and Milan, and it is one of the largest cities on the Mediterranean Sea. It has the largest historic city center in Europe, enclosing 27 centuries of history over 4200 acres of the heart of the city, listed as a World Heritage site.

One of the oldest continually inhabited cities in the world, Naples has been inhabited since the Neolithic Era. The earliest settlement here was around 2000 BC as a Greek colony, which later became a major Roman city. During World War II, Naples was the most-bombed city in the world.

Today, Naples is known as one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the world, known for its sweeping seaside and mountain views, the incorporation of the city into a hillside, beaches, city center, history from virtually every millenium and time period, architecture, cuisine, culture, and beauty.
