NAPLES TO SEE …

Naples owes its origins to the siren Partenope. The city of Naples, rich in history and tradition, dominates the homonymous gulf, and is surrounded by wonderful places such as Vesuvius, the Sorrento peninsula, the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida and the Campi Flegrei. Located at the center of the Mediterranean, it has always played a fundamental role in connecting different cultures, and has seen the succession of different historical phases over the centuries and left their mark both in the architecture of the city and in the traditions and character of the Neapolitan people.

Chapel San Severo and Veiled Christ

The Veiled Christ is one of the most fascinating and mysterious works that can be seen in Naples. It is said that the veil of marble on the body of Christ, is actually a veil in fabric, transformed into rock thanks to a special liquid invented by the sinister Prince of San Severo, an illustrious alchemist.

 

Archaeological Museum of Naples

First riding school and then the University, the Archaeological Museum of Naples was inaugurated in 1816 and today is one of the most important in the world for the quality and quantity of the works it contains.

Plebiscito and Royal Palace of Naples

If there is a symbolic place in Naples, this is Piazza del Plebiscito. Over the centuries it has been transformed from a simple country road to a gathering place for the Neapolitans: here were held the medieval tournaments and the “cuccagne” of the Bourbons to keep the people good.

 

Museum of Capodimonte

In 1738 Charles of Bourbon decided to turn his hunting lodge into the woods of “Capo di monte” in a Royal Palace – Museum where to host the Farnese Collection received from his mother. In fact, even today, walking through the large rooms of the building it seems that the Bourbon family left the house a moment before we entered.

The Cathedral and the Treasure of San Gennaro

Along the nineteenth-century via Duomo, the façade of the Cathedral of Naples appears majestically, a place mainly dedicated to the cult of San Gennaro. Rich in chapels of powerful Neapolitan families, the Duomo is embellished by the paintings of Luca Giordano depicting the Apostles, the Fathers and the Doctors of the Church.
