Hotel Decumani de Charme

The hotel used to be the residence of Sisto Riario Sforza, the last Archbishop of Naples during the Bourbon Kingdom, and original ornate golden stucco features and 17th century mirrors still adorn the walls.

The décor is still reminiscent of the past but the heavy brocade drapes and elegant wooden furniture blend perfectly with modern amenities such as free Wi-Fi internet access, LCD TV, electronic lock safes and Jacuzzi baths.

Staff at the hotel take pleasure in showing off their city and will happily recommend restaurants, book tickets to museums and map out walking routes that incorporate the city highlights.

First-timers to Naples will fall in love with the hotel's fabulous location, the Decumani centre of Naples, an area which has become home to an assortment of people since the arrival of the Greeks in the 5th century BC and now hosts some of the world's most impressive churches, museums, monuments and palazzi.

We think this is the perfect location to experience the sounds and colours that make Naples so special.

Naples - Europe's best street food

Naples - Europe's best street food

Strolling the food stalls of Naples is understanding the city’s culture, traditions and pride. Mobile cooking-stations, kiosks, cafés, tiny eateries, food markets and other street food havens are the city’s law and order. Take these away and Naples would run into real chaos.
In the Footsteps of Caravaggio

In the Footsteps of Caravaggio

Italy has produced a wide range of great artistic talents over the years, with the likes of Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo all hailing from this great country. But one of the most beloved and interesting painters Italy has produced has to be the one and only Caravaggio. Famed for his realistic yet dark, horrific and often gory depictions of biblical/mythical scenes, this Old Master travelled extensively across Italy, often not by choice, but due to being exiled from Rome, and seeking refuge in alternative locations.

As a result his masterpieces can be found in cities all over the country and catching a glimpse of one is a must-do for any art lover during their holiday in bella Italia. For this reason, we’ve put together a comprehensive (but by no means definitive) guide to where you can see some of Caravaggio’s most famous paintings in Italy.

How to visit Mount Vesuvius independently

Vesuvius, together with Etna and Stromboli, is one of the three active volcanoes in Italy.

It is considered one of the symbols of the city of Naples, although in reality it is a real scarecrow for those who live in its immediate vicinity: its presumed first eruption, which occurred in the very distant 79 d. C., destroyed Pompeii, Herculaneum and the ancient cities of Stabiae and Oplontis.

Today, it is still considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in Europe due to its explosive eruptions. Nevertheless, it is the favorite destination of many visitors from all over the world.

Let's see then, through the steps of the following guide, how and why to visit Vesuvius
