Naples is the regional capital of Campania and the third-largest city of Italy, after Rome and Milan, with a population of 967,069 within the city's administrative limits as of 2017. Its province-level municipality is the third-most populous metropolitan city in Italy with a population of 3,115,320 residents, and its metropolitan area (that stretches beyond the boundaries of the Metropolitan City of Naples) is the second-most populous metropolitan area in Italy and the 7th-most populous urban area in the European Union.
First settled by Greeks in the first millennium BC, Naples is one of the oldest continuously inhabited urban areas in the world.
Mount Vesuvius is probably the most famous volcano in the world. School children across the world have read about it in their history textbooks for generations – the volcano that destroyed Pompeii! Usually Vesuvius is discussed in the context of the eruption in 79 AD – a story of history and a natural disaster of the Ancient World. Rarely do we mention that Mount Vesuvius is still active and one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world. Since Pompeii was destroyed by Vesuvius, there have been dozens more eruptions. We don’t know the exact number because the historical records of ancient time are incomplete, but the best estimate is about 40 times in the past 2000 years.
In fact, Mount Vesuvius is the only volcano to have erupted in Europe in the past century. In its most dramatic volcanic event of the 20th century, lava flowed over the rim and huge clouds billowed into the air – all of it clearly visible from Naples.

I love landscapes but I m also passionate about architecture! every time a travel to a city, I always look for beautiful architectures, like this one, Stazione di Toledo in Naples. The station is ranged as one of the prettiest subway in the world.
One of the best sunsets you'll get in the mediterranean is on this Italian islands. Get up on the hill and overlook the hrabour. This place is perfect for a summer holiday.
Italy is more than just Rome. On the outskirts of Rome on the way to visit the Catacombs we saw pleasant fields with grazing sheep. Not your usual idea of Italy. But now a favorite memory. #givethanks

Naples tour must visit: Naples Duomo
Napoli Cathedral in Naples is very important position, like the main church in other Italian cities, the cathedral is also a white spire.
The Duomo of Naples was built in 1272 and was ordered by Charles I of the Anjou family (Anjou). The nave of the church is very large with a gorgeous inlay on the top. The 1456 earthquake destroyed the church and, after numerous reconstructions, became the new Gothic look.
It doesn't look so special from the appearance, it is simple, compared to the cathedrals of metropolises such as Milan, the cathedral of Naples may look a little inferior in appearance. But the interior is much more refined. The carvings inside are very fine, the atmosphere inside the church is strong, many masses and important events are held here, and the annual San Gennaro festival is also held in the cathedral.
When we entered a small chapel inside the church, just a beam of sunlight projected through the glass, projected on the interior of the golden decoration, looked exceptionally beautiful, just like the Bible: " God says that there is light, and there is light."
