The incomparable beauty of Naples
Italy hosts some of the most beautiful cities in the world, and they are even more interesting because of their extreme diversity. However, despite the competition, Naples remains at the top of the list of cities to be seen at least once in a lifetime, along with Rome and Venice.
There is even a famous Italian saying, “vedi Napoli e poi muori”, that roughly translate into “see Naples and then die”, to witness the incomparable beauty of this city. Naples offers the tourist a full range of offers that can satisfy every taste. Those looking for great holidays at the sea will find some of the best beaches in Italy; anyone who loves to discover local cuisine will be thrilled by the city that invented the pizza, while those who love to party will dive into one of the most effervescent night scene.
Naples is also a city that, like Rome, is rich in history and art: monuments and buildings of different ages, along with many great museums, attract many tourists every year. Listing all the museums in Naples is an impossible thing: Italian Allegria loves and knows this city very well and has therefore chosen for you some museums and places of interest that you will remember forever.
Pompeii & Vesuvius
Let us start from out of town: the archeological site of Pompeii is a unique voyage in time that will take you to the precise moment of a terrible eruption.
The fleeing figures, forever frozen in lava, are one of the most powerful sight that the world can offer and you will remember them for a long time. After Pompeii, you have to visit the Vesuvius, to witness the majesty of this ancient volcano, the one responsible for the tragedy of Pompeii.
Museo del Sottosuolo
The Underground Museum is part of the ancient Greek Roman-aqueduct of Naples, in whose tanks, in the 1940s, an anti-aircraft shelter was set up to protect the Neapolitan population during the bombing. It has been restructured with great concern and attention, and today it offers fascinating shows, cultural events and tours guided by the “Munaciello”, a traditional Neapolitan fairy.
Certosa e Museo di San Martino
This Carthusian monastery complex was founded in 1325 and has been extensively reworked and restructured in the 16th century. The monks went in and out of the complex many times because it has been dissolved under the French domination and again after the Italian Unification. The monastery offers spacious rooms full of paintings and one of the greatest panoramic view over the Waterfront. Among the many masterpieces that you will find in the complex there are Massimo Stanzione’s Deposition, Ribera’s Communion of the Apostles, Guido Reni’s Adoration of the Shepherds and Battista Caracciolo’s Washing of Feet.
Museo Cappella Sansevero (Cristo velato)
Located in the heart of Naples, the Sansevero Chapel Museum is a jewel of the international artistic heritage. Baroque creativity and dynastic beauty create a unique atmosphere, almost out of time. Here you will find masterpieces such as the famous Cristo velato (the veiled Christ) very famous all around the world for the marvelous “weaving” of the marble veil.
The list goes on and on: National Archeological Museum, Capodimonte Royal Palace and Museum, Catacombs of San Gennaro and Palazzo Reale are only some of all the great art and history spots that deserve a visit in this unique city.
