Naples, a city in southern Italy, sits on the Bay of Naples.
The city of Naples, rich in history and tradition, dominates the homonymous gulf and is surrounded by wonderful places such as the Sorrento peninsula, the islands of Capri, Ischia, and Procida and the Campi Flegrei. Located at the centre 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, which left their mark both in the architecture of the city and in the traditions and character of the Neapolitan people. Capital of the Campania Region and "capital" of southern Italy, Naples today covers an area of 117 square kilometres with a population, in the city alone, of over one million inhabitants. Nearby is Mount Vesuvius, the still-active volcano that destroyed the Roman towns Pompeii and Herculaneum. Dating to the 2nd millennium B.C., Naples has centuries of important art and architecture. The city's cathedral the Duomo di San Gennaro is filled with frescoes. Other major landmarks include the Royal Palace, Castel Nuovo, Sansevero Chapel, S. Chiara church, and the Archeological Museum.
