Naples, a city with a thousand faces
shadow the Vesuvius tourism's roots: in the footsteps of great greek columns refined aristocrats and roman emperors built their sumptuous villas and oasis all along the shoreline of the Gulf.
It is no coincidence that the peculiar magic of this ancient civilization continues to generate, at the dawn of the third millennium, more and new sources of amazement: recovery of old monuments and traditions - folklore, gastronomy, genuine cultivation - that were thought irreparably lost, events and shows worthy of the great international circuit, new fodder for artistic and scientific research.

The hilly area of ​​Vomero offers masterfully restored buildings in an exemplary manner in the Royal Palace of Capodimonte and the Certosa di San Martino, museum collections of the most important in the world.
A path in the twentieth century the city leads, among many urban and architectural buildings of note, to the rationalist architecture of the Overseas Exhibition, the park and the sports facilities and exposure; a short distance, the Science City testifies to the recovery of industrial architecture systems and the originality of a scientific tradition that renews itself.

Unusual and surprising, finally, the exploration of new contemporary art: monumental buildings such as the PAN, Palazzo delle Arti Napoli; the Mother, Museum of Contemporary Art Donnaregina; a unique admired throughout the world as the art of metro stations, tangibly illustrate the original horizons of a last-sighted cultural policy.
