Italy: Naples

Yesterday I got a postcard from Italy.

It shows the Piazza del Plebiscito in Naples. Naples is the third largest city of Italy and the capital of the Italian region of Campania. Between 1282 and 1816 it was the capital of the Kingdom of Naples and then served as capital of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. It is an economic and cultural centre of Southern Italy and is known as home town of the Pizza. Since 1995 is the Historic Centre of Naples on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Thank You very much Yao!
