If you want to spend your holidays in a city of artistic interest, you have to choose Naples! It is for sure one of the favourite destinations for all tourists who love spending their holidays in the south of Italy. One of the great attractions of a visit to this beautiful city is the opportunity to explore the rich cultural and natural landscape of the surrounding Campania region. Some of the best things to see in Naples are: Piazza del Plebiscito, constructed as an imitation to the Pantheon in Roma it is one of the elegant monuments in Naples; Piazza del Gesù Nuovo the most important church ever built by Jesuits, dedicated to Jesus’ name and Mary’s Immaculate Conception; Santa Chiara, a religious complex that includes the Church of Santa Chiara, a monastery, tombs and an archeological museum; Piazza del Plebiscito, one of the four residences near Naples used by the Bourbon Kings during their rule of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies; Teatro San carlo, one of the symbols of Naples built in 1737, it has been once the biggest opera house in the world and Piazza Castello also called Maschio Angioino it was built in 1279 and used by subsequent Angevin monarchs as a royal residence and fortress. About the food: pizza al forno , slightly smaller than the Margherita you eat in a restaurant, you can easily fold this pizza and make a portafoglio, that is a wallet-pizza. The most popular Neapolitan late breakfast, you can buy it for no more than €1. It’s a must when you visit the city and nearly all pizzerias will have a small glass counter outside the shop with a full array of pizzas; Montanara, it is a little round fried pizza, topped with tomato passata, a leaf of basil and a springle of parmesan cheese. The dough is very similar to a pizza base but with more water added, which gives a softer texture to the final product. It comes in bitesize, street food size (c. 10cm) and sit down size, which is the one you have in a restaurant on a proper lunch break and then Panino napoletano or pagnutiello, soft and succulent as only the touch of lard can add, this bread is filled with salami, cheese, boiled eggs and black pepper. Possibly, the most traditional mid-morning “snack” Naples has to offer, after a pizzetta!
