Naples is the home of the historic Pompeii ruins, the breathtaking Mount Vesuvius and a whole host of opportunities for fine dining.

Italy may be home to world-famous cuisine, but it is Naples specifically that you have to thank for the creation of pizza.

For the perfect blend of food and fun, Naples is a great destination for families and couples, all year round.
Dining al fresco adds a sense of fun to traditional family mealtimes. Naples natives dine sociably in large groups, enjoying some of the country's best pizza, pasta, coffee and gelato.
