Arguably the most typical city in Italy is Naples. It is beautifully situated on the Gulf of Naples. From Naples you can see the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida in clear weather.
The soil beneath Naples is of volcanic origin. Looming, Vesuvius stands at the gates of Naples. The nearby volcano has given Naples the tufa stone that people have used to build their homes and, in the past, underground water reservoirs. Tuff was already used by the Greeks in ancient times to build their temples and walls. Some caves served as places of worship and burial. The underworld of Naples is particularly impressive and can be visited with guides.
People have always used the fertility of volcanic soils to grow wine and fruit. This evolved into Neapolitan cuisine, which includes much more than pasta and the well-known Pizza Margarita.
