Naples

NaplesNaples, politically and socially wrong always, always bubbly, a poor activities pushed "unholy", a circulation thunderous, relentless and chaotic, rarefied air but ... always, always the spontaneous atmosphere, descontracturada: Napoli, Italy the edge!
 Naples has a wealth throughout Italy as cultural, historical and cultural heritage despite great eruptions of Vesuvius, an earthquake and World War II that particularly took umbrage with this region, a gulf that is admired for thousands of years, a more than generous climate and inhabitants who are not duped by the stress of modern life and the dictates of globalization.

Welcome to the city center, where every day you can visit a museum, a street, a square, a monument, or stroll through the largest historical center of Europe, a true open-air museum, declared World Heritage by UNESCO . Welcome also to a region full of history and legends where every rock, every cave, every track has a story to tell and where the natural beauty of the world's most beautiful bay leaves us breathless.

 Naples was founded by the Greeks under the name of Neapolis and was conquered by the Romans in the fourth century BC who frequented as seaside resort. From the thirteenth century Naples begins to live times convulsed, French, Sicilian and Spanish, among others, succeed in their rule, each of these stages left in its wake numerous inscribed monuments and buildings that still today we can find. The seventeenth century was particularly flourishing from the artistic point of view and see the Neapolitan school of painting under the brush of Caravaggio, numerous palaces and Baroque churches rose in that period. In 1860, Naples is part of the Kingdom of Italy.

 The city of Naples is the capital of the province and is part of the region of Campania in southern Italy. This beautiful city is flanked by the volcano or Mount Vesuvius and the Phlegraean Fields, another volcanic formation, and is located north of the Golfo di Napoli near the town of Pozzuoli. At this find the incredible Gulf "Pompeii" and the famous Vesuvius, Sorrento's magnificent south and the Sorrentine Peninsula separates the Gulf of Naples Gulf of Salerno, all about the legendary Tyrrhenian Sea, part of the Mediterranean Sea.

 Naples has an international airport, "Ugo Niutta Capodichino" which is the most important in the southern region, its air traffic is receiving and dispatching important domestic and European flights. Many companies low cost flights and charters operate this airport is just 7 km from the city center. The transfer from the airport to the city is carried comfortably on buses, minibuses and taxis that depart in the direction of the train station or port (Piazza Municipio, downtown).

 Trains arriving to Naples via Rome do, for that matter, anywhere in Europe or Italy there is a train that takes us, the journey between Rome and Naples takes about 45 minutes (only 200 km apart) and every half time does a train. If you prefer to travel by bus, there are companies that come to Naples from different cities in Europe and, of course, just Italy.

 If you prefer to drive to get to Naples, we must follow the directions to get to Rome and continue on the A1 motorway to "Napoli".
 Using public transport in both the city and its surroundings did not cause any nuisance, trains, two metro lines, trams, buses and four ski lifts. All bus lines pass by the train station and the Piazza Garibaldi.
 The pass "UnicoNapoli" is sold in bars, cafes and businesses that sell snuff. The boats that make the trip between the mainland and the islands of Capri and Ischia leave Castel Nuovo.

 Staying in Naples represents no major problems, there are always available accommodation for all budgets, from luxury hotels to 5 star superior standard, resort hotels, spa hotels, to pensions, residential, boutique hotel accommodation, convents and monasteries, private accommodation individuals, shelters for families, youth hostels, inns and Bed & Breakfast.
 Naples is known for being very expensive however, we can find accommodation in the pedestrian area for less than 10 euros a night and I'm not talking about in a hostel dormitory for youth.
It also has pretty well equipped campsites and ... nothing is far in the province of Naples, we may stay on the outskirts of the city and enjoy both the cultural offer of the historic center of the city of Naples and the natural beauty of Gulf.

 The experience and memories that will leave most emotional Naples were both visiting historic monuments like the approach to life of the Neapolitans. The leading lifestyle, habits and customs, that atmosphere is unique and unmissable descontracturada. Sitting still and watch the scenes of everyday life, young people-watching in their famous scooter, children playing football anywhere or rather in every place, the elderly working with your hands, clothes drying in the light of all, the music playing everywhere ... moving away just a little of the historical, watching carefully to not be disguised as tourists flaunting cameras, camcorders, netbooks, bags ... (Recognize that security is not a minor issue in this troubled city and the rush there).
 It may not come to believe as Stendhal did that Naples is the most beautiful city in the world but not remain indifferent to such exuberance.
Often denigrated and made part, Naples was built (and often destroyed) on the most beautiful bay in the world, between the slopes of Vesuvius feared Capri and spring, a few steps from Pompeii and resting on the beautiful Amalfi Coast , its streets full of hidden life of former grandeur palaces, baroque churches and the "piazzas" Italy's busiest.
The story goes that many Neapolitans joined the quest to conquer the New World and that patients in those distant lands only murmured "See Naples and dopo morire", unconditional love their city is still present in the children of Naples
