The historic centre of Naples with its splendid palaces, and popular and lively working-class districts, is now on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Naples also boasts an underground city, as well as its famous views from all parts of the city. Moreover, this hospitable city is marked by contrasts and popular traditions, such as the annual miracle whereby San Gennaro’s ‘blood’ becomes liquid in front of the eyes of his followers. Two products have made Naples famous throughout the world. One of them is the pizza, which is only one part of a rich local cuisine. The other one is music with the famous popular song "O Sole Mio."
