The Greeks founded Naples in the sixth century BC. The settlement was located in what is today the Centro Storico neighborhood, and it was named Neapolis, which literally means "new city." The Romans claimed Neapolis in 326 BC and ruled until AD 800, when Naples became an independent city. This independence lasted until AD 1100, when the city was briefly controlled by the Lombards before falling under Norman rule.  Click here to see the full Naples travel guide on Travel42 »

Naples is known as the home of the true pizza (pizza vera napoletana), and a trip to the city can easily be eaten away at its many pizzerias. Pizzaioli (pizza makers) do not toss the dough in the air; they work it with their hands into a very thin crust, then top it with sauce or tomatoes and mozzarella. The Italian government classifies pizzas in a similar way to wine: Pizzas can be D.O.C. (denominazione d'origene controllata). To qualify, the pizza must be made according to precise standards, including the thinness of the crust and the weight.   Click here to see the full Naples travel guide on Travel42 »
