The historic center of Naples represents the first historical nucleus of the city. It contains 27 centuries of history.

Mostly declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1995[1] (about 1021 hectares), it was included in the list of assets to be protected; its particular uniqueness lies in the almost total conservation and use of the ancient Greek road layout.
