Napoli is a historical city in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, with a high touristic vocation. With roots in the pre-Greek civilizations, he has been touched by many different cultures (Romans, Arabians, Norman-Swabians, Spanish and Frenches to cite the majors), Napoli offers a multicultural experience. Faced on the gulf dominated by the Vesuvius volcano, it is close to other historical sites (like Pompei, Herculaneum, Campi Flaegrei) and famous touristic locations (Capri, Ischia and Nisida Islands, Sorrento and Amalfi coasts).
“Na-poli” (from greek Nea-polis, new city) was founded on the previous establishment of Parthenope, dating back to VIII B.C. We are a cosmopolitan and multiracial population.
