Naples PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Naples  free pdf The birthplace of pizza, a treasure-trove of museums, art galleries, and Roman ruins, Naples is the centerpiece of the "National Geographic Traveler: Naples and Southern Italy", now being republished in a fully updated edition. Esteemed travel writer Tim Jepson helps you explore the best of this region's long-standing capital, then heads to Pompeii and Herculaneium, the sublime Amalfi Coast, and exquisite offshore islands, the most fabled being Capri. The Abruzzo, high on exceptional mountain scenery- Puglia, filled with the unusual trulli- Basilicata- Campania- and Calabria are also part of the tour, with excursions including Sicily and Sardinia, two fascinating islands whose rich art, culture, language, and history are fiercely separate from those of mainland Italy. As in the entire "Traveler" series, popular features include mapped walking and driving tours (a drive through Romanesque Puglia, for example)- insightful two-page descriptions of specific aspects of history and culture (trulli, the Mafia)- exquisite three-dimensional drawings (including a beautiful layout of Pompeii)- an extensive introduction to the region's history and culture- as well as a robust section on practical information, including how to travel around southern Italy, the author's pick of hotels and restaurants in a variety of price ranges, and a compendium of entertainment, shopping, and activities. The book is chock-full of the "National Geographic Traveler" series' attractive new features, such as Insider Tips from "National Geographic" and local experts on favorite or little known sites and events, as well as dozens of sidebars highlighting experiences that allow the visitor to truly get inside the local culture - such as visiting mozzarella farms- attending a Napoli soccer match, an important part of Naples' popular cutlure- and experiencing the annual Festival of Madonna della Bruna in Matera, during which young locals tear apart a papier-mache float to represent that hope and new ideas can set them free from the ways of the past.
