Life in Naples
Studying in Naples at the University Parthenope is an exciting experience. In its one hundred years since its foundation,
the most profound and characterizing trait of Parthenope University has remained unchanged as its most authentically traditional feature: the ability to interact with the social context and to continuously engage with its evolving demands.
The Parthenope University offers a unique opportunity to study whilst enjoying the cultural, social and recreational amenities of one of the world's most exciting cities symbol of Italian Excellence. With five universities and numerous research institutions, Naples offers one of Europe's most inspiring environments for students and academics to live and study. This intellectually appealing atmosphere coupled with the campus location puts our students in the heart of a dynamic academic environment. Naples also has the advantage of having one of the most stunning backdrops in the world. Layers of history are visible as you walk its cobbled streets, dipping in and out of the many bars, restaurants and galleries and a thriving contemporary art scene — in museums, galleries, and even metro stations — is propelling the city’s cultural revival continuously. With Vesuvius, Pompeii ruins and Amalfi’s coast to the east, the ancient port of Pozzuoli to the west, the timeless islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida nestled in the glittering bay, it’s no wonder the Romans nicknamed the area Campania Felix – the happy land.
