Birthplace of pizza and a treasure-trove of museums, art galleries, and medieval palaces, Naples is the centerpiece of National Geographic's Traveler guide to southern Italy.

Veteran writer and Italy expert Tim Jepson makes this vibrant and fascinating country—home of some of the world's most sublime art, architecture, and literature and one of its oldest civilizations—highly accessible to the modern traveler. After a thorough introduction, he begins his coverage in Rome with specific, detailed suggestions on how to tackle this most sight-intensive city: "Your best approach is an oblique one," he writes. "Avoid the big-name sights at the outset, and ease yourself gently into the city with a coffee or a stroll around its most intimate squares."
