Travel Europe - A Guide for Independent Travellers
Naples Italy is the capital city of the Capania Region. It is a large, chaotic city featuring a spectacular castle and a wonderful archaeological museum.
The National Archaeology Museum houses artifacts that were recovered from the "Lost City of Pompeii". Pompeii was frozen in time some 2,000 years ago when Mount Vesuvius erupted, covering the Roman city with volcanic ash.
Naples Italy is the gateway to Pompleii, Herculaneum, Capri and the beautiful Amalfi Coast. It is located just 27 km from Pompeii and 50 km from the Amalfi Coast. Ferries run directly to the island of Capri from Naples.
