Top Tours & Activities in Naples
Snuggled into the coast of Campania with an urban area incorporating four million inhabitants, Naples is one of Europe's best-kept secrets.
A true jewel of the Mediterranean, a drive along the Amalfi Coast will dazzle you.
Naples' opera house's programme is diverse, with ballet shows taking place between April and June, too. Even if opera and ballet are not your thing, the house is lovely to behold.
If you are a classical history buff, you've come to the right place. See statues and artwork depicting the beginnings of Europe's rich heritage.
The unusual architecture of this church of "New Jesus" dates from the year 1470. It also faces one of Naples' main squares. The inside of the church is also worth a look for its frescoes!
Located on the peninsula of Megaride, the "Egg Castle" dates back to Roman times and has since seen it all: Norman, Saracen, Spanish, and French invaders. See it as part of a wider tour of Naples to understand its history.
Four days or so should cover the basics - take out whole days for trips outside of Naples, such as to Pompeii and Herculaneum.
Pretty walkable, especially in the city center. There is also a transit system serving the whole metropolitan area, including a funicular taking you up into the hills.
All year round, but go between October and March to avoid crowds and very warm weather.
In Italy, some stores and other attractions are closed at lunchtimes or in the afternoons, so double check before you set out somewhere.
