The Partenope Relais is located on the seafront of Naples, the most central and charming area of the city. In a few minutes of walking you can reach the Castel dell’Ovo, Plebiscito Square, the Royal Palace, the San Carlo Opera House, Umberto I Gallery and the most exclusive shopping streets (Via Calabritto, Piazza dei Martiri, Via Filangieri, Via dei Mille).
Born in 2013 from a skillful and accurate restoration of a prestigious neoclassical building, the Relais Partenope shows all the elegance and harmony of a design hotel in the spectacular scenery of the Bay of Naples. The spacious and luxurious Rooms and Suites offer stunning views of the sea, Vesuvius, the island of Capri and the Sorrento Coast, and every convenience for those seeking exclusivity and style in Naples.
The design and elegance define every detail of the 24 rooms of the Relais Partenope, designed to offer maximum comfort. Posters of movies that made the history of cinema form the backdrop to all rooms, most of which have a sea view and some with kitchenettes and capacity up to 4 people.
With a modern and sophisticated design, the restaurant offers the best dishes of the “Neapolitan cuisine” in a warm and refined atmosphere.
Naples and Pompeii
Naples has one of the biggest historical city centers in the world, and its pride is the 448 historical and monumental churches, the highest number in the world for a single city.
She city has a bad reputation concerning the Mafia, trash crises and some parts of the city are impoverished, but if you look andBeyond this and exercise a bit of caution, you will find a vibrant city with plenty to see and do. The iconic sight of the gulf of Naples with Mount Vesuvius is arguably one of the most powerful symbolic images of Italy.
Pompeii was an ancient Roman town-city near modern Naples, and was mostly destroyed and buried under 13 to 20 feet of volcanic ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79.
When a group of explorers rediscovered the site in 1748, they were surprised to find that–underneath a thick layer of dust and debris–Pompeii was mostly intact. The buildings, artefacts and skeletons left behind in the buried city have taught us a great deal about everyday life in the ancient world.
Today, ongoing excavations of once booming Pompeii offer you the best look anywhere at ancient Roman life.
