Ancient Age
The city was probably founded by the inhabitants of the Greek
colony of Cuma around the VIII century B.C., with the name of
Partenope, on the actual Echia Mountain. Such installation
would subsequently have been called Palepolis ("old city), when
the city would have been a little distant rifondata in the V
century B.C., with the new name of Nèa-pòlis ("new city"). In the
536 Naples you/he/she was conquered by the Byzantines during
the Gothic war and he/she remained also firmly in the hands of
the empire during the subsequent invasion longobarda,
becoming subsequently autonomous dukedom. The life of the
dukedom was characterized by continuous wars, mainly
defensives, against the powerful principalities near longobardi
and the Saracens. In 1137 the Norman ones of Roger II
conquered the city, putting an end to the dukedom, and Naples
entered so to belong to the territory of the Principality of Capua,
in the newborn Kingdom of Sicily, with capital Palermo;

In 1442 Naples also fell into the aragonese hands, becoming one
of the most influential cities with Alfonso the Magnanimous
(1442-1458), as king of this great Mediterranean state. In 1501,
during the Italian wars, the Kingdom of Naples was conquered
by the Spaniards and, for over two centuries, ruled by a viceroy,
on behalf of Madrid. in the seventeenth century, Austria
conquered Naples until 1734, when the kingdom was occupied
by Charles of Bourbon, who rebuilt an independent state. Under
the dynasty of Bourbon Naples strengthened its role as a major
European capital. With the French Revolution and the
Napoleonic wars, Naples first saw the birth of a Jacobine
Republic and then the consequent Bourbon restoration.
In 1815 with the final defeat of Napoleon and the Congress of
Vienna Naples returned again under the Bourbons. In 1860 the
Kingdom of Two Sicilies was conquered by the Thousand of
Garibaldi and annexed to the Kingdom of Italy headed by
Piedmont. During World War II Naples saw after the September 8,
the popular uprising against occupant commonly known as the
Four Days of Naples.

Sybil - Cave
He said, and wept; then spread his sails before
The winds, and reach'd at length the Cumaean shore:
Their anchors dropp'd, his crew the vessels moor.
They turn their heads to sea, their sterns to land,
And greet with greedy joy th' Italian strand.
Some strike from clashing flints their fiery seed;
Some gather sticks, the kindled flames to feed,
Or search for hollow trees, and fell the woods,
Or trace thro' valleys the discover'd floods.
The landing of the Troyans, led by Enea, on the
shore of Cuma, Eneide, book 6 verses 1 - 9
The so-called Sybil-cave is situaded in the Archeological park
of Cuma. Is a long tunnel that ends in three-roomed niche,
believed to be the seat of the Sybil of Cuma. The Sibyl was a
priestess sacred to the god Apollo: from her cavern she gave
ambiguous interpretations of the future.
The Anphithreatre dates to
Flavian times, and is the third
largest in the world. Its
functional architecture is an
excellent example of the
exceptional technological levels
reached in that era.

As its name suggests, this long narrow street splits Naples in two,
from high-up in the San Martino district down to the central station.

of the city, with many shops, craft workshops, buzzing university
faculties and inviting café terraces.
