The most Italian of cities

Conjure up any image of Italy, and you can find it in Naples, arguably the most Italian of cities. Pizza, sunshine, scooters, football, and some of the world’s greatest art, all in the shadow of Vesuvius, mainland Europe’s only active volcano. Settled by the Greeks around 470 BC, the city has had an often troubled past, and the present is not without its troubles either – however, the infamous rubbish problems have been resolved, crime figures are down, and tourism is on the up.

Stay.com Editors' Note

Galleria Principe di Napoli was built as a commercial centre, but it never fulfilled its initial purpose. It was designed in 1869 by architects Nicola Breglia and Giovanni De Novellis, and built between 1876 and 1883 as part of planned improvements to Via Fosse del Grano.

Today Galleria Principe di Napoli contains private and governmental offices. The gallery was fully restored in 2007-2008 and reopened to the public in 2009.
