Hotels in Naples, Italy - your base to discover the city.
Naples HotelsNaples is one of the largest historical areas in the world - with its historical city centre the largest in Europe - and you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to the amount of ancient wonders to see here. In addition to the majestic, crumbling ruins dotted all around, the city bursts with culture, food and night-life. Naples invented the pizza, and once you've sampled the delicious airy dough and tangy sauce of a Naples Margherita, you'll never look back. Things to seeWithout a doubt, you'll want to head into the historic city centre – it really is a must see. The cosy, bustling streets here play home to a vast collection of historical treasures such as ancient Roman theatres, and eerie catacombs. After a lazy, stroll through these enigmatic sun-baked streets, you can easily stop off for an icy drink and authentic, mouth watering pizza made the traditional way. A great place to take in a number of sights at once, being an impressive attraction in itself, is the Piazza del Plebiscito. The largest public square in Naples, this impressive cobbled space is particularly beautiful at night, bathed in incandescent light from the domed Church of San Francesco di Paola. You can also find the stunning Royal Palace here, as well as a number of intricately carved statues. Castel dell'Ovo is a must see too, rising from the Gulf of Naples.
