- Naples rests in southern Italy, on the Bay of Naples. Recorded history dates the first inhabitants of this ancient city to second millennium B.C. The city eventually became a colony of the Roman Empire, making it an important hub for Greek culture to merge with Roman culture.
- Modern Naples has the largest historic city centre in Europe, which is 4,200 acres (1,700 hectares) and includes 27 centuries of history. The city centre is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The influences it had upon the Renaissance and Enlightenment eras are noticeable within the beautiful art and architecture displayed around the city.
- The Museo Acheologico Nazionale is the largest museum of roman architecture in the world—even greater than the National Museum of Rome.
