Amazing Tourist Attractions of Naples

Naples is the capital of the Italian area – Campania and the third-largest municipality in Italy, after Rome and Milan. This place is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. The history of Naples stretches back to the Bronze Age. The city consists of the largest Old Town district in Europe and boasts of much historic churches than any of the other city in the world. There are many cultural as well as historic tourist attractions in Naples, with most of them hidden under the dirt, noise and chaos of everyday life of this bustling city. Settled around the stunning Bay of Naples, the city is located under the shade of Mount Vesuvius that conceivably explains why residents embrace life with such humble and candid attitudes. Naples is not as popular as other tourist destinations; this place offers every visitor a rich and truly Italian travel experience. In this article, we have mentioned some of the famous tourist attractions of Naples which you must visit during your trip!

Naples National Archaeological Museum

The Naples National Archaeological Museum is one of the top attractions in Naples. It is the best place for art lovers to view art and artifacts that were recovered from the Mount Vesuvius eruption of 79 A.D. Also, the bronze statues, mosaics and frescoes rescued from the buried sites are everyday objects like shop signs and cookware. The Alexander Mosaic that dates from circa 100 BC is the most popular artwork of this museum. This art piece depicts a battle between the armies of Darius III of Persia and Alexander the Great. It is also home to the famous “Farnese Bull”, the largest single sculpture from relics ever recovered.

Spaccanapoli

It is a lengthy narrow street which split the historic center of Naples. The visitors of Spaccanapoli provide visitors an introduction to the sights and attractions of the vivacious southern capital city. The street has occupied the same place since the Greeks first established a colony in this region during 6th century. The street represents 27 centuries of history and the neighborhood is a packed mix of historic churches, open-air cafés, sparkling piazzas and unique shops.

Castel dell’Ovo

Also called the “Castle of the Egg”, it is the oldest castle present in Naples. Castel dell’Ovo gets its name to the poet Virgil, who apparently placed an egg under the foundations of this fortress. As per the legends, this city will be protected from any disaster as long as the egg remains unbroken. Located on a peninsula jutting into the sea, this 12th-century castle is worth a visit and also offers incredible views offered from its fortifications. It is also home to the Ethno-Prehistory Museum that features ceramics, metal artifacts and earthenware from the earliest days of Naples history.
