THE AMAZING TOWN
Neapolis (“new city”) was a thriving Greek commercial center 2,500 years ago. Today, it remains southern Italy’s leading city.
Naples impresses visitors with one of Europe’s top archaeological museums (with the artistic treasures of Pompeii), fascinating churches that convey the city’s unique personality and powerful devotion, an underground warren of Greek and Roman ruins, fine works of art (including pieces by Caravaggio, who lived here for a time), and evocative nativity scenes (called presepe ).
HISTORIC CENTRE OF NAPLES
From the Neapolis founded by Greek settlers in 470 B.C. to the city of today, Naples has retained the imprint of the successive cultures that emerged in Europe and the Mediterranean basin. This makes it a unique site, with a wealth of outstanding monuments such as the Church of Santa Chiara and the Castel Nuovo.
Naples, of course, makes the best pizza you’ll find anywhere, and tasty pastries as well (try the crispy, ricotta-stuffed sfogliatella ). But more than anything, Naples has a brash and vibrant street life—“Italy in your face” in ways both good and bad.
THE PHLEGRAEAN FIELDS
are a vast area located in the Gulf of Pozzuoli, west of the city of Naples and its gulf. The area has been known since ancient times for its lively volcanic activity.
From a geological point of view, the area is a large caldera in a state of quiescence, with a diameter of 12-15 km, whose limits are given by the hill of Posillipo, from the Camaldoli hill, from the northern ridges of the crater of Quarto , the hill of Sanseverino, the acropolis of Cuma, and Monte di Procida. In this circuit there are numerous craters and small volcanic buildings (at least twenty-four), some of which have effusive gaseous manifestations (Solfatara area) or hydrothermal (in Agnano, Pozzuoli, Lucrino), as well as the phenomenon of bradyseism (very recognizable for the its entity in the past in the so-called Temple of Serapis in Pozzuoli). Throughout the area are visible important deposits of volcanic origin such as the Tufo Grigio Campano (or Ignimbrite Campana) or the Yellow Tuff. In the area there are lakes of volcanic origin (Lake Averno) and coastal lakes originated by barrier (Lake Lucrino, Lake Fusaro, and Lake Miseno).
