Naples with palaces and buildings is a sort of open book: every monument is a piece of history of several dinasties that have been succeeded to the government of Naples.The Unesco has declared the urbanistic riches of Naples " humanity patrimony ", it is an immense patrimony that to go back to VII century a.C. There are museums, castells, antique city doors, fountans, parks and more than 200 churches with inside many paintings and sculptors.

The structure of the old Naples downt-town is very antique and is based on 3 axis,they go from est to west (Decumani), they are intersected by streets (Cardini) that go to north-south,they made the 'rectangulars block'(the old Insulae).
