Naples is a Southern Italian city with a history dating back to 2nd millennium B.C. Though Naples isn’t the prettiest of Italian cities, it is the birthplace of pizza. This reason alone makes it worth visiting for at least a couple of days. Moreover, the city shares close proximity to the Roman towns of Pompeii, Capri, and Sorrento, which makes it a good starting base for your itinerary to the southern Italian region.
Churches, palaces, and castles can be found throughout the city, while it also houses a wide range of world-class galleries, museums, and archaeological sites. The major landmarks in Naples include the lavish Royal Palace and Castel Nuovo - a beautiful castle dating back to the 13th century.

Dating back to the 13th century, Naples Cathedral has been revamped several times because of earthquakes. Despite numerous alterations, the 1407 doorway in the cathedral’s center has survived. The cathedral is further surrounded by several beautiful churches, including the Archbishop’s Palace and the 17th-century Chapel of San Gennaro.
Catacombs of San Gennaro
The Catacombs of San Gennaro originally served as a hunting lodge for King Charles III, but eventually, it grew up to become the royal residence and a place where the king used to house the Farnese collection, inherited by him. The collection is comprised of beautiful portraits by Titian, Mantegna, Caravaggio, El Greco, and several other Neapolitan artists of the 17th and 18th centuries.
Castel Nuovo, aka the Maschio Angioino, is a five-towered castle situated on the south side of the Piazza del Municipio. Originally, it served as the residence of the kings and viceroys of Naples, but today, several parts of the castle are used for events and expositions. Castel Nuovo had been renovated a couple of times to suit the requirements of various rulers - French, Aragonese, Spanish, and Austrian. Furthermore, there’s also a Gothic Church of Santa Barbara in the castle’s courtyard.
The main highlight of Santa Chiara is the Santa cloister, which apparently looks more like a park in a seaside resort than a solemn retreat for nuns. But nonetheless, the 66 octagonal columns surrounding the cloister are covered by vividly colored Majolica tiles, and between the columns sits long benches, which are also covered in the same tiles. Besides that, there’s a presepio (nativity scene) set in a Roman ruin, portraying the intense interest in the discovery of Herculaneum in the early 18th century. Altogether, the cloister and other findings, make up a small yet beautiful archaeological area and museum.
