Naples - Neapolitan Welcome
Naples is a city of intrigue and wonder nestled against the cobalt water of the Bay of Naples. Regal history dates beyond the Spanish Kingdom and the Kingdom of Sicily, to ancient Greeks. One of our Italy tour operators will arrange for a private transfer to meet you at the airport. You will then be escorted through the third-largest city in Italy. Palaces and castles decorate the cityscape, most notably at the edge of homes leading to the rich volcanic hills. The city is the birthplace of pizza, giving rise to the indulgent aroma of freshly baked crust and melted cheese that the entire family finds enticing.
Citrus groves grow hardily outside of the cobblestone streets of Naples. The breeze carries the zesty aroma over the cobblestone lanes, offering a unique scent. The oldest street houses a historic market of freshly caught seafood and decadent homemade food brought to the market for sale. Your private transfer whisks you around the Bay, past the looming summit of Mount Vesuvius, and settles your family into a luxurious hotel in the charming seaside city of Sorrento.
