Cruise tο Naples !

Arriving in Naples on a cruise ship is an unforgettable experience. Having navigated past the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida situated in the azure blue waters of the Bay ofNaples, passengers get a glimpse of the bustling metropolis overlooked by the verdant hill of Vomero, dominated by the great walls of the spectacular castle Sant' Elmo which lies behind the grand white edifice of the Maritime Station.

Naples is an extraordinary city. As the ancient capital of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, it has always been an openair museum. Its historical centre is designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. It hosts hundreds of buildings and churches dating back from the 17th through to the 19th Centuries designed by great Italian architects.

The National Archaeological Museum is considered one of the most important in the world for Roman artifacts. It also hosts many of the antiques unearthed at Pompeii. Naples has inherited one of the most beautiful and famous theatres in the world: the San Carlo Theatre, where great operas are performed. The cultural offering is paired by the wine-and-food tradition: the pizza has historically been the symbol of Naples and of the culinary art of Southern Italy. Local pasta, fish and vegetable dishes are excellent.

Pompeii, the Roman city preserved intact by Vesuvius' ash 2,000 years ago, is just half an hour distance from Naples. Yet there is much more to offer cruise passengers on a stop inNaples. Come and see for yourself!
