Naples, Italy

For the third edition of the Seismic Inversion conference we have chosen Naples, Italy.

The city is located in the Southern west coast of the Italian peninsula. On its celebrated bay - flanked to the west by the smaller Gulf of Pozzuoli and to the southeast by the more extended indentation of the Gulf of Salerno—the city is situated between two areas of volcanic activity: Mount Vesuvius to the east and the Campi Flegrei (Phlegraean Fields) to the northwest. To enrich the bay, there is Capri Island, Ischia Island and Procida island, visible from the city in clear weather and easily accessible by ferry from Naples harbour. 

Naples is among the most ancient European cities founded by Greeks 2,500 years ago. Its contemporary urban fabric preserves the elements of its long and eventful history: the city centre is the largest in all Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage site since in 1995. Naples’s colourful centuries-old history can be admired through the countless monuments, palaces, museums, churches, as well as underground, with catacombs and labyrinth of tunnels. 

Beyond its historical allure, Naples is renowned for its warmth, both in terms of climate and hospitality. The city invites you to wander through the narrow, bustling streets to discover hidden gems, indulge in authentic Neapolitan cuisine, and soak in the breathtaking views of Mount Vesuvius. 

Join us in this captivating setting for an event that seamlessly blends tradition with innovation, creating an unforgettable experience in the heart of Naples.


Naples is easy to reach thanks to several national and international direct connections. Naples International Airport is located 5 km away from the city center and connects to more than 100 national and international destinations: the main European hubs can be reached in less than 3 hours. In addition, the high-speed train network guarantees short connections with the principal Italian cities i.e. Rome 1 hour, Milan 4 hours. Florence in 2 hours 30 minutes.


Uber and other rideshare services are not widely available in Naples, but you can easily catch a taxi from set stops on the street — look for the TAXI placards. Official taxis in Naples are white. Contact Radio Taxi Partenope or Taxi Napoli if you need to schedule a journey in advance.

You will find bus and tram stops at most major intersections, but you'll need to walk to reach many of the tourist sites that can be found among the Centro Storico's winding, narrow streets.

The underground metro is definitely the most recommended way of transportation, especially Line 1 connecting the main Station (Garibaldi) with the main city centre attractions. All the stops along Line 1 are one of the most interesting examples of decentralised museum spread over the urban area: more than 150 site-specific works of art by 80 protagonists of contemporary art have been placed inside and outside the stations.
