'Vedi Napoli e poi muori!' goes the famous phrase - 'See Naples and die!'. It might not have the same ring to it in English, but Naples is truly a city that rests long in the memory. A city with a fascinating history, a beautiful coastline and a live volcano! It goes without saying that the food here truly is to die for, as the home of many Italian classic dishes, including the pizza. This break offers you the chance to discover the ruins of Pompeii and also learn about the city on a half day guided tour. Stop off for a pizza one lunchtime and experience authentic Naples in just 3 days!

Where to begin? Naples is Italy's third largest city, sitting on the wide gulf of Naples in the South west of Italy, around one hour south of Rome; the distinctive outline of Vesuvius is visible from the other side of the bay.

A vibrant, often chaotic, port city, one of the oldest in Europe, Naples is a fascinating destination for art and history lovers.
The historic city centre has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. According to the UNESCO website: '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.'*

Pompeii, the ancient Roman town destroyed by the eruption of nearby Vesuvius in AD79, is a fascinating place to visit, full of well preserved mosaics and frescos. It gives real insight to the everyday lives of people at that time, as does the smaller and less well known Herculaneum nearby.

Food is a reason in itself to visit the city, the home of the classic margherita pizza (many Neopolitans balk at the idea of adding more toppings), other highlights include spaghetti alle vongole (spaghetti with clams) and heavenly sweet pastries.

There is so much to see and do here and in the area that you will barely scratch the surface in three days, however if you have time you could extend your stay and travel to the islands of Ischia and Capri, or head down to Sorrento and the wonderful Amalfi coast.
