Not many people may know this, but Naples, the capital city of the Campania region in southern Italy, has a rich history to match the likes of Rome and Florence. It’s uniquely situated between two volcanic areas: the infamous Mount Vesuvius to the east and the Campi Flegrei (Phlegraean Fields) to the northwest. Since the city lies on the Bay of Naples along the Tyrrhenian Sea, it has served as the main port of the southern coast of Italy for millennia. As with any historic city – especially those along the seas – there is plenty to discover in Naples. Check out our top 3 spots along with an amazing view from a lovely private villa.
One of the most mesmerizing experiences in Italy has to be a golden hour drink while overlooking the Bay of Naples and, in the distance, Capri. It’s hard to find a better view than that. Luckily for you, you can now enjoy it from a private Neapolitan villa with amazing views over the Tyrrhenian Sea. Part of what makes this villa unique is its five grand, beautifully arched windows that is typical of local architecture. In addition to this authentic touch, there is a lush panoramic garden with deckchairs at your disposal for you to relax in. To make your visit even more special, you will be welcomed with a delicious apéritif, soft drinks or wine. Naples is also known to be a paradise for foodies, so there are plenty of original Italian bites for you to indulge in. Think fresh breads like ciabatta, focaccia and various types of bruschetta. For those who prefer something simpler, there are also assorted nuts and delicious crackers.
There is much to discover in Naples, and they are perfect to combine with your Viewnary experience. You literally and figuratively cannot miss what dominates Napoli’s skyline: Mt. Vesuvius. Today, you can take a bus tour from Naples to explore and hike on the slopes of the magnificent volcano. While you’re there, you can walk through the surreal ruins of Pompeii and lesser-known – but equally impressive – Herculaneum. Second on our list is a truly underground activity: the San Gennaro Catacombs (Catacombe di San Gennaro). A visit to these catacombs will transport you into a different world; it’s filled with an extensive and ancient network of tunnels, passageways, graves and crypts. Guided tours are available to help you navigate through the stunning site. Last but not least, hop on a boat and explore the scenic island of Capri. The world-famous island is home to quaint Italian villages, a rugged coastline with countless caves and a beautiful landscape. While you’re there, walk through the picturesque Marina Grande and take a trip to the Blue Grotto Sea Cave. No matter what you decide to do in wonderful Naples, the best way to top it off is with a golden hour Neapolitan experience with an amazing view.
