More than 4000 years old, situated at the foot of the Vesuvius volcano, base camp for Pompeji and Herculaneum, widely known for its piazzas, palaces, castles and museums … although Naples (Napoli) is one of the oldest inhabited places on earth, it is a no-go for tourists. The city is packed with well-organized thieves, in Naples the Mafia ‘controls’ the waste-management industry by dumping and burning trash across its rolling hills and vineyards.
