    About Naples:

    Naples is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. Bronze Age Greek settlements were established in the Naples area in the second millennium BC. The city was refounded as Neápolis in the sixth century BC and became a lynchpin of Magna Graecia, playing a key role in the merging of Greek culture into Roman society and eventually becoming a cultural center of the Roman Republic. Naples remained influential after the fall of the Western Roman Empire, serving as the capital city of the Kingdom of Naples between 1282 and 1816. Thereafter, in union with Sicily, it became the capital of the Two Sicilies until the unification of Italy in 1861. Naples' historic city center is the largest in Europe, covering 1,700 hectares (4,200 acres) and enclosing 27 centuries of history, and is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.


    Social events:

    An attractive social event is planned to Herculaneum Archeological site: the richest residential town near the sea, in the roman era. Despite of the Vesuvius eruption, many houses, paintings, mosaics and everyday furniture are still intact and accessible to visitors (http://www.pompeiisites.org/Sezione.jsp?titolo=Herculaneum&idSezione=556).

    In addition to daily sessions, a number of social events will be organized in order to facilitate the cultural exchange opportunities among students and teachers, including a traditional napolitan dinner at Ristorante la Bersagliera (http://www.labersagliera.it/).
