The Historic Centre of Naples is UNESCO World Heritage: a grid formation divided by three street axes: the ‘decumanus’ roads running from east to west cut at right angles by the so-called ‘cardo’ roads that run from north to south, full of squares, churches and sites of interest. Thanks to its cheapness and its folklore, it is completely different from the other Italian cities.
