Running from April 30th to May 30th, the event is sure to attract plenty of tourists to hotels in Naples with the promise of unusual experiences that individuals may not otherwise see if they visited the monuments at another time of year.

This year, the theme is Return to Baroque and some of the activities on offer include horse racing, classic Neapolitan songs and operettas, in a cultural programme that is aimed at exploring the artistic output of that era in the gorgeous Italian city, according to What's on When.

"The Neapolitan Baroque, with a maximum brightness occurred between 1600-1700, has drenched the city in all its forms with a great range of art and monuments," explained travel website Fattoria Terranova.

People can find special occasions occurring at many of the monuments and museums around the city each weekend, which will tell the story of how places such as the Royal Palace of Capodimonte and the Real Albergo dei Poveri came to be influenced by the Spanish, continued the online resource.
