Naples, Italy is one of the countries most interesting cities- and with good reason. Known for its art and architecture that dates back centuries, travellers can indulge in slices of pizza and sfogliatelle, a shell-shaped filled Italian pastry. This southern Italy city, which sits on the Bay of Naples, is synonymous for its rich architecture, churches and history.
Make sure you visit Naples National Archaeological Museum, Castel Nuovo, Naples Harbour and Naples Cathedral.
The more adventurous can hire a car or travel by bus to the Amalfi Coast, which is only an hour and a half away. A tour of underground Naples and a train ride to the ruins of Pompeii offers insight into the 2000-year-old Roman history. If time permits, wander into their coastal town of Positano, which offers the perfect detour to Capri by ferry. An average 7-night package can start from R14 500 (3-star) to R22 000 (5-star).
