Naples itself isn't a very beautiful city, in my oppinion. In its outskirts often look spoiled and dirty. The city center looks better, but cant compete with the centers of other big cities.
Besides that, Naples has got an exceptional archelogical museum, you really should visit, if you're interested in history of the Greek and Romans.
Next to Naples exists another historical place,that's besides Pompei a real treasure. It's the ancient roman 'city' 'herculaneum', hercolano in italian. There's a complete city preserved, even wooden beds you can see there aqnd amphitheaters, completely subterranean. You shouldnt miss that.
Altogether Naples is worth a journey, but not for longer than a weekend.

Close to Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii, Naples offers day tours to the sites of these historical disaster struck areas. Half day trips are also available, as well as a three hour trip to Pompeii. Tours are a great way to get the quick lowdown on the city, but you can opt to explore it yourself for a more leisurely experience... Read more »
