A walk through the main city of South Italy
Naples is a brilliant city on Italy's southwest cost; it's a mishmash of architectural styles, with elegant 18th-century palazzos, castles and wonderful churches. The city, settled by the ancient Greeks, was at one time the capital of southern Italy. Throughout the century's Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Swabia's and Spanish bourbons also settled here. A lot of history and traditions are condensed in the old city center where Neapolitans live since the VI century before Christ.
