Naples is the capital of the Italian region Campania and the third-largest municipality in Italy after Rome and Milan. Kick off your visit on the 13th (Fri): examine the collection at Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli, don't miss a visit to Via San Gregorio Armeno, make a trip to Oltre I Resti, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Museo Cappella Sansevero, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Duomo di Napoli. Here are some ideas for day two: brush up on your military savvy at Galleria Borbonica, steep yourself in history at Parco Acheologico di Ercolano, and then steep yourself in history at Underground Naples.
