Naples is one of the oldest, continuously inhabited cities in the world. It is easy to see why! The graceful curve of the bay of Naples, overlooked by Mt Vesuvius, with its rich volcanic soil has provided abundant produce throughout history. It was the Greeks and Romans who first made their mark on the city, leaving a gallery of architecture and artwork for us to admire today. As has each subsequent culture.
