Naples is a historical city which dates back three thousand years. The city history remains an important part of present society and is reflected by the many remaining archaeological finds, monuments, and buildings, all make up the identity of the city and its population. From touristic point of view , the area of Campania offers a lot of interesting things, both in terms of its nature and its culture. Naples, the city and its province shapes the coastline of the Gulf of Naples, boasting the wonders of Pompei and Herculaneum, the beauty of the Phlegraean Fields, the enchantment of the Sorrentine Peninsular , the legendary islands of the Gulf and most importantly Vesuvius. Certainly, much has been said and written about this area, and, nevertheless this knowledge is somewhat superficial and much still remains uncertain. This book is considered as a bridge between people who desire to walk through the heart of Naples and its territory discovering old and unique testimonies of past centuries, and the identity of a land which is still alive in the spirit and in the welcoming of people . This book suggests some day trip itineraries, recommending destinations but leaving you with a choice, following your own impulses and preferences in the knowledge of this wonderful region. This book only intends to take the role of showing what there is to discover, in particular the Naples’ warm and ancient sense of hospitality, which reveals the identity of a town famous all over the world. In particular it focuses the attention on an very old and unique architectural example of the passage from the Gothic age to the Renaissance in Naples. The itinerary proposed is a visit to the Province of Naples which runs from Ischia ( at the extreme west coast of the Gulf ) to the Sorrentine Peninsular, then into the heart of the region to visit the area at the feet of Vesuvius. It is a route that allows visitors to see civil and religious architecture, castles, numerous nobles’ palaces and villas with splendid portals and the Royal Palaces, where their history is crystallised in the walls and rooms, offering attestations of a culture developed over the course of many centuries.
