Naples, home of pizza, Camorra and Pompeii, this colourful, vibrant city of southern Italy contains a bounty of must see attractions for visitors, both tourists and business people alike.
Why exhibit there?
For most of its 5000 year history, Naples enjoyed a robust economy as a major trading centre. Today however, the economy of Naples and its surrounding area is based largely on tourism, commerce, industry and agriculture.
Naples Airport, also known as Capodichino Airport, is situated just 6 km north of Naples city centre. However the Naples Metro system has not been extended to the airport, so for visitors it is a straight choice between the airport bus, a taxi or private car.

Key tourist hotspots
- Naples Harbour is the historic gateway to the Mediterranean and the world, and it’s from here you can get a feel for this vibrant city.
- The second-century Catacombs of San Gennaro, like the Roman catacombs, are a maze of passages and tomb chambers, but these are more ambitious architecturally and have finer paintings than their Roman counterparts.
If you’re in Naples, you’re eating pizza.
- Sorbillo wins the race. Sorbillo pizzas range from the simple and traditional to the more elaborate and creative.
- Umberto offers the classics of Naples gastronomy, which include a range of dishes: spaghetti with clams, eggplant parmigiana, salted codfish and, of course, pizzas.
- Local currency is Euro.
- Language is Italian.
- Visa - if you’re from within the EU you don’t need one, outwith the EU you’ll have to check the list.
- Plug sockets are the two prong European type.
- There are no real cultural sensitivities so to speak, but advice for conducting business meetings:
- Meetings begin punctually late: they start late and they finish late.
- Italians tend to ”multitask”, as they like to do many things at once, shifting their priorities as new demands arise but being unruffled by interruptions.
