A Quick Tour of Italy – Naples
If you are hankering to tour Europe you should consider the city of Naples in the Campania region of southwestern Italy on the Tyrrhenian Sea. Its Historic Center has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We cannot say that Naples is undiscovered. But it is definitely less tourist infested than many, many other Italian cites. Read our other articles on western and eastern Campania.
Greek colonists founded Neopolis between the Seventh and Sixth Centuries B. C. Over the centuries this city was dominated by almost one dozen nationalities. Naples was once the third largest city in Europe and a major cultural center. Unlike northern Italy cities Naples has few immigrants. Unemployment remains high. The Sicilian-based Mafia is not very present, but the local Camorra is. Watch yourself and your belongings in this fascinating city.
Naples is home to many miles of subterranean Greco-Roman reservoirs and tunnels, some of which are available for visiting. Much of Naples is constructed from stone removed during tunnel excavation. During World War II underground Naples served as air raid shelters whose walls display legible graffiti more than sixty years later.
The Castel Nuovo (New Castle) was initially built by the Angevins in the Thirteenth Century. It includes numerous frescoes from the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Centuries. The moat surrounding the castle once contained a crocodile that really relished prisoners. The crocodile was killed and stuffed, and hung above a castle doorway where it remained until the mid-19th Century.
The Seventeenth Century Royal Palace was home to Napoleon’s youngest sister and her husband, the King of Naples. Visit the royal apartments for a real taste of luxury. Next door to the palace is Naples’s largest square, the Plebiscite Plaza whose central attraction is the San Francesco di Paola, which resembles the Pantheon in Rome.
Make sure to visit Naples’s excellent museums. The National Archaeological Museum has a great collection of Greek and Roman antiquities. The Museo di Capodimonte proudly displays an extensive collection of paintings by Italian and other European masters. The Palace of Neapolitan Art and Donna Regina Art Museum are devoted to contemporary art.
Naples is home to many pizzas including Pizza alla Napoletana, Pizza Margherita, and Pizza Marinara. I love them all. See our companion article I Love Touring Italy – Naples for a sample menu and more information on Campania wines plus an in-depth examination of Naples’s tourist attractions. The Fiano di Avellino is said to be one fine white wine. I tasted this wine and was quite pleased.
Levi Reiss has authored alone or with a co-author ten computer and Internet books, but to tell the truth, he would really rather just drink fine French, German, or other wine, accompanied by the right foods. He knows what dieting is, and is glad that for the time being he can eat and drink what he wants, in moderation. He teaches classes in computers at an Ontario French-language community college.

Venice (Italian: Venezia, Venetian: Venesia or Venexia) is a city in northern Italy, the capital of the region Veneto, and has a population of 271251 (census estimate January 1, 2004). Together with Padua, the city is included in the Padua-Venice Metropolitan Area (population 1600000). Venice has been known as the “La Dominante”, “Serenissima”, “Queen of the Adriatic”, “City of Water”, “City of Bridges”, and “The City of Light”. It is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The city stretches across 118 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon along the Adriatic Sea in northeast Italy. The saltwater lagoon stretches along the shoreline between the mouths of the Po (south) and the Piave (north) Rivers. The population estimate of 272000 inhabitants includes the population of the whole Comune of Venezia; around 62000 in the historic city of Venice (Centro storico); 176000 in Terraferma (the Mainland), mostly in the large frazione of Mestre and Marghera; and 31000 live on other islands in the lagoon. The Venetian Republic was a major maritime power during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and a staging area for the Crusades and the Battle of Lepanto, as well as a very important center of commerce (especially silk, grain and spice trade) and art in the 13th century up to the end of the 17th century.

Hi,my friend This time, the city is Bari. Bari is the capital city of the province of Bari and of the Apulia (or, in Italian, Puglia) region, on the Adriatic sea, in Italy. It is the second most important economic centre of mainland Southern Italy after Naples, and is well known as a port and university city, as well as the city of Saint Nicholas. The city itself has a decreasing population of 328458 over 116 km², while the fast-growing urban area counts 653028 inhabitants over 203 km². Another 500000 people live in the metropolitan area. Bari is made up of four different urban sections. To the north is the closely built old town on the peninsula between two modern harbours, with the splendid Basilica of Saint Nicholas, the Cathedral of San Sabino (1035 – 1171) and the Castello Svevo of Frederick II, which is now also a major nightlife district. To the south is the Murattiano section, the modern heart of the city, which is laid out on a rectangular gird-plan with a promenade on the sea, and the major shopping district (the via Sparano and via Argiro). Surrounding this center is the modern Bari which is the result of chaotic development during the 1960s and 1970s over the old suburbs that had developed along roads splaying outwards from gates in the city walls. In addition, the outer suburbs have developed rapidly during the 1990s. The city has a redeveloped airport named after Pope John Paul II, Karol Wojtyla Airport, with connections to several European cities. (en …
