Naples is the third largest city in Italy. It has been a witness to fearsome battles.Before visiting, I didn’t really think that I am going to fall in love with this city. I could spend days wandering around the alleys without getting bored. I was recommended visiting Naples by my friend Kris who runs Cascade Maids up in Everett, WA. He loves to travel & we had talked about great cities to visit. So glad I took his advice. If you get a chance to visit this city, there are a few things that you should definitely check out
Climb Mount Vesuvius
It dominated the landscape and the skyline which dominated Naples. Climb Mount Vesuvius is actually a volcano which erupted in 79 AD. Apart from this, this is the burial of Herculaneum and Pompeii. It is the only of Europe’s mainland which has erupted in the last hundred years. I took a bus from Naples to reach this natural phenomenon. Climb up to take a look into the crater. You can hike up to the top and it is going to take you about 20-30 minutes. Visit on a clear day to get a spectacular view from the top.
Visit Pompeii’s Ruins
Pompeii, the ancient city is situated at the foot of Climb Mount Vesuvius. The settlement is advanced and had been devastated when the volcano erupted in 79 AD. Take a walk through these ruins. I found the amphitheater to be an interesting attraction. Apart from this, you can also check out the Temple of Jupiter and the Temple of Apollo.
National Archaeological Museum
This structure had been established in the 1750s. Then it used to operate as the cavalry and military barracks. It was turned into a museum only later. Inside the museum, there is an extensive collection of Greek and Roman artifacts. However, I also found worlds of Herculaneum and Pompeii. If you are interested in ancient history then you should definitely visit this museum.
