Naples is one of the largest Italian cities and among the most ancient in Europe, since it has been founded by Greeks 2,500 years ago. The city centre is the largest in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Pompeii and Herculaneum are in close proximity, just like Sorrento, Capri and the Amalfi Coast. The main airport is Naples International (NAP), which is located 5 km away from the city centre and connects to more than 100 national and international destinations. In addition, the high-speed train network guarantees short connections with the principal Italian cities i.e. Rome 1 hour, Milan 4 hours. Naples is a city full of surprises: with its mild Mediterranean weather, you can do any activity … except skiing! From scuba-diving up to hiking Vesuvius Volcano, from sailing in the Gulf of Naples to Vespa touring on the Amalfi coast or time travelling in the archaeological sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii. Professionals who come for business in Naples always return for pleasure. The city is a treasure of traditional certified food and wine productions. The hilly territory and the mild climate make the area suitable for the viticulture, such as Falanghina and Aglianico. Homeland of pizza, mozzarella, espresso coffee and Limoncello, Naples is the ideal destination for cooking classes and wine tasting.
Naples offers congress solutions that cater to every group-size, such as Terminal Napoli, Mostra d'Oltremare and Città della Scienza, the biggest conference centres in town up to more than 1000 seats capacity. The city also possesses incredible venues that can be privatized for unconventional events. There are four castles and three royal palaces, which can host events with an exclusive charm. Churches and Museums are spread all around the city centre: the Monumental Complex of Donna Regina, the Filangieri Museum and the Bank Archives are three jewels located near San Gregorio Armeno, the world-famous street of nativity craftsmen. The underground spaces of Catacombs of Naples and the Bourbon Tunnel can become the unusual scenario to a candle-light gala dinner. Palazzo Zevallos Stigliano can be the perfect art-lover choice with its Caravaggio masterpiece, and don’t forget the unique San Carlo, the first Lyric Theatre in Europe. Did you know that the first railway in Italy started from Naples? The National Railway Museum of Pietrarsa celebrates this primacy, with its stunning locomotives and a beautiful amphitheatre overlooking the Gulf of Naples and Capri.
Naples hosts stunning and panoramic 4 and 5-stars hotels: among the biggest, the Royal Continental, with 12 meeting rooms and a 530-seat auditorium; the Hotel Ramada by Wyndham, with its 2000 sqm of flexible meeting area and a conference centre up to 800 persons; the Palazzo Caracciolo MGallery Collection, the Terminus by Starhotels, the Renaissance Mediterraneo by Marriott and the Grand Hotel Oriente, wonderfully located in the heart of the city with meetings spaces up to 250 persons.
