Located in Italy’s southern region known as the ‘Mezzogiorno’, Naples has an entirely different vibe than fashionable Milan or touristy Rome. Because of its enduring and unfortunate association with organized crime, the city suffers a pretty bad press and is generally overlooked by tourists. Yet, the simple fact is Naples is no more intimidating than any other large European city with the great advantage of being ten times more fascinating than most. A mixture of different historical periods, the city and its historic center – now a UNESCO World Heritage site – has long been renowned for its beauty, with generations of poets and artists coming from all over the world for inspiration. A visit to Naples will give you a true taste of southern Italy, whilst a visit to nearby Capri will provide you with some of the finest sights that Italy has to offer. Together with Capri, a visit to Pompeii will allow students to dive into ancient Roman life and customs.
