The excavation work began in 1748 and not yet completed, have brought to light an entire city, where it is been possible to study the everyday life of ordinary people of that era.

The city, in the tradition of Greek town planning, was characterized by the presence of thistles and decumani, and was rich of religious buildings and public utilities.
It became an important colony of Magna Grecia, together with Taranto and Cuma. Although the early relations between Rome and Neapolis were imprinted on friendship and on trying to enter into agreements, Neapolis by Rome was considered an important vehicle of Greek culture and civilization: the city and its surroundings became a destination for summer residences of roman patricians who built luxurious villas between Sorrento and Pozzuoli (Tiberius, Nero, and Lucullus, chose this area for rest and fun, Cicero, Horace, Pliny the Elder, Virgil, here they found inspiration for their artistic genius). Naples was the center of refined culture, part of the Greece in the Italian Peninsula, that the Romans had always respected and appreciated.
