Make your tour of Italy memorable with a visit to Naples

A tour of Italy will bring you through some of the most historic landmarks in the world. Few countries have played a more important role in the development of modern civilization, and if you're looking for one of the best places to see just how true this is, you should make sure you include Naples in your itinerary. One of the largest cities in the country, this beautiful coastal hub has been inhabited for tens of thousands of years, and today it stands as a highlight of Italy tours.

The best place to start your trip through Naples is at the Piazza del Plebiscito - the city's main square. Home to many of Naples' most famous attractions, the piazza's most well-known building is the Royal Palace of Naples. This stunning piece of architecture dates back to the 1600s and was home to many of Italy's kings. Today, their statues are displayed in chronological order in the interior of the castle and stand as a highlight of a visit to the palace along with the ornately decorated throne room and stately main stairs.

While the sights of the Piazza del Plebiscito are undoubtedly highlights of Naples, you would be remiss if you didn't make an effort to take in some of the natural beauty Naples exudes around every corner. The city is home to a large number of parks, but if you're looking for one of the best, you should head to Parco Virgiliano, which is located high above the Posillipo. Aside from offering a respite from the bustling city streets, the park is particularly popular for providing stunning views of the Gulf of Naples along with the lush volcanic inlet of Nisida.
