Fly with British Airways to enjoy world-renowned cuisine and historic treasures in Naples.
There is a special atmosphere in Naples, it’s an ancient city steeped in history and culture, with one of the most celebrated coastlines in the world on its doorstep. And while it has its problems, it is a remarkable and utterly charming city.
Its historic heart is unlike most other modern metropolises, with a shambolic feel and walls scrawled with graffiti, but look beyond this, and there is a city worth returning to time and time again. Labyrinthine lanes showcase stunning yet sometimes dilapidated architecture which travels through the ages – Roman ruins, medieval structures and Baroque palaces share cobbled streets and grand piazzas. The backdrop of Mount Vesuvius adds to the dramatic nature of Naples, and acts as a gateway to the Amalfi Coast and Sorrento, just around the Bay of Naples. Plus, Neapolitan cuisine is world-renowned, so either grab a few slices of pizza or head upmarket to one of the city’s 20-plus Michelin-starred restaurants. If you are looking for a holiday destination with a frenetic and inexhaustible energy, then look no further, book your flights to Naples now.
Designated an UNESCO World Heritage Site, Naples’ Centro Storico boasts a breathtaking array of historical gems. On the bustling Piazza des Plebiscito, gaze in awe at the majestic dome and columns of the Church of San Francesco di Paola. Admire the beautiful façade of the Royal Palace and gleaming golden stucco-work of the Teatro San Carlo opera house. For endless retail therapy opportunities, make your way along the meandering Via Toledo, taking in the magnificent fin de siècle Galleria Umberto I mall.
