Romantic Naples, two hours south of Rome, is the largest city in southern Italy and is the capital of the Italian region Campania and the third-largest municipality in Italy, after Rome and Milan. Naples is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. It has some of the world's best opera houses and theatres, and is often called an open-air museum, because of its many historic statues and monuments. Naples is widely known for its wealth of historical museums. Join families on promenade as the sun sets on the Bay of Naples.
