Introduction to
Naples, Pompeii and
the Amalf Coast
A chaotic, dynamic and mesmerizing metropolis, Italy’s third largest city after
Rome and Milan couldn’t be more diferent from its northern counterparts.
Quite unlike anywhere else in Italy, or indeed the world, it will frustrate and
thrill in equal measure, and will soon have you under its spell. In addition to
its sheer chutzpah, the city’s stunning location on the Bay of Naples – within
easy reach of some of Europe’s greatest archeological sites, the fabled islands
of the bay itself, and Italy’s most jaw-dropping stretch of coast – make it one
of Italy’s absolute must-sees.
Naples and its region are undeniably appealing, with a huge variety of things to see and do,
but the city certainly comes with baggage. Plenty of Italians have never been here, and swear
that they never will. Internationally, too, its reputation is traditionally not strong, and has
perhaps only worsened as its longtime struggles against organized crime have been broadcast
far and wide through popular books, movies and television series. You may feel the same,
and quite honestly it’s easy to visit Pompeii and Herculaneum, the islands and the Amalf
Coast and barely set foot in the city itself. But to do that would be to miss somewhere
special, a destination that just two centuries ago was one of the largest cities in Europe and a
must-visit for any self-respecting Grand Tourist. With Italian Unifcation its power waned,
and its fortunes over the twentieth century mirrored those of the wider Italian south, marred
by poverty, corruption and stuttering economic growth. Tese days, however, it’s on the
upswing, and, truth be told, just as accessible for travellers as – and no more dangerous than
– anywhere else in Italy. Naples also provides a vibrant and fascinating base for seeing many
of the nearby attractions, with an integrated transport network around the Bay of Naples
that makes it a perfect half of a two-centre holiday. Spend time here before heading of for
the more bucolic delights nearby – you won’t regret getting to know one of Europe’s great
undiscovered tourist destinations.
