Naples (Italian: Napoli, Neapolitan: Napule; Latin: Neapolis; Ancient Greek: Νεάπολις, meaning “new city”) is the capital of Campania and the third-largest municipality in Italy, after Rome and Milan. As of 2012, around 960,000 people live within the city’s administrative limits.
First settled by Greeks in the first millennium BC, Naples is one of the oldest continuously inhabited urban areas in the world.
Naples’ 2,800-year-history has left it with a wealth of historical buildings and monuments, from medieval castles to classical ruins. That’s one of the reasons that Naples (Napoli) is one of the most touristic cities in Italy.
