Naples is the capital of the Italian region Campania and the third-largest municipality in Italy after Rome and Milan. On the 9th (Wed), browse the exhibits of Museo Cappella Sansevero, contemplate the long history of San Domenico Maggiore, then get curious at Museo delle Arti Sanitarie, and finally see the interesting displays at Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli. Here are some ideas for day two: steep yourself in history at Catacombe di San Gaudioso, contemplate the long history of Acquaquiglia del Pozzaro, pause for some serene contemplation at Chiesa di San Gregorio Armeno, delve into the distant past at The Neapolis Buried, then make a trip to Via San Gregorio Armeno, and finally explore the world behind art at Gallerie di Palazzo Zevallos Stigliano.
