Naples is a place to take a tour. Although Naples has some points of

wood are among favorite buys.
Cuisine. Small restaurants and a number of
ornate 19th-century cafes located around the Galleria Umberto I and the
Piazza del Plebiscito offer culinary delights.
Cathedral of San Gennaro. The head of Naples patron saint
San Gennaro is kept in a chapel dedicated to the saint, along with two
phials of his blood that miraculously liquefy three times a year.
San Gennaro Catacombs. Among the Christian underground
burial vaults discovered in an area of suburban heights, the Catacombs
of San Gennaro can be visited. They feature extensive early Christian
mosaics and carvings, some dating back to the second century.
Capodimonte Park. Here, the National Museum of Capodimonte
has five Caravaggios and works by Titian. One entire wing is filled with
18th-century figurines. The Royal Factory founded by the Bourbons still
manufactures these beautiful ceramic and porcelain figures today.
