Naples Italy. It is best known for its cache of medieval and Baroque architecture, and as the birthplace of the pizza. With Pompeii on its doorstep and as many churches as Rome, there’s a lot to see in this city on the romantic Bay of Naples. Sip a glass of Lacryma Christi wine from the slopes of Vesuvius or shop on Via San Gregorio Armeno. Or simply relax with a Margherita pizza at one of the many piazza cafés.
