Naples

Napoli, Maschio Angioino

 

Naples, mysterious and fascinating, engaging and passionate, chaotic and contradictory, so ancient and varied, justifying the presence of numerous monuments dating from different periods: from the greek-roman all'angioina, all'aragonese, so, after walking distance from each other, you can meet in city Roman walls, medieval churches, Norman castles, Renaissance palaces, early Christian catacombs. It is thanks to the presence of such masterpieces that Naples is undoubtedly the most beautiful city with the highest number of castles in Campania, in Italy and perhaps in the world.

In fact arriving to Naples, it means to arrive in the capital of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies, which, with its fortifications 4 (Castelnuovo Male or Angevin, Castel dell 'Ovo, Castel Capuano and Castel Sant' Elmo) and 4 royal palaces (Palazzo Reale, Reggia di Capodimonte , Royal Palace of Portici and Reggia di Caserta), dazzle us with its beauties.

Neapolis wasn’t a warrior town, but it  had to defend  soon against many people from 423 BC by the Samnites, to arrive at the Bourbon domination of the nineteenth century.These long dominations have indeed led devastation of peoples, but in Naples and Campania have left a unique artistic and cultural heritage. Naples has many buildings in addition to castles, mansions, squares, parks, and includes countries and besides the province have city and town of every age (Torre Del Greco, famous for its coral, Torre Annunziata, built on the ruins of the ancient "Oplontis”, Castellammare di Stabia, the ancient "Thermae Stabiae") is also to mention the beauty of the Teatro San Carlo, the oldest in Europe, built in 1737 by order of King Charles of Bourbon, surmounted by the crown of the kingdom of the Two Sicilies, l ' only one to have as one of the most distinguished artistic directors of Italy and Europe: Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti, Toscanini and Mozart, Goethe, Stravinsky.
