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.

What People Are Saying About Naples
We were staying in Rome and took a train to the Naples Central Station to take this tour. The tour bus was waiting right across the street. This tour stopped at a couple of fun surprise locations that we were not expecting, but made the tour more enjoyable: the Limoncello factory and Almalfi. I'm glad Miguel led us through Pompeii so we could learn the history of the different locations. I would highly recommend this tour!
The tour was very good. Well organized, the guides were very knowledgeable and fun at the same time, everything went smoothly and we were not late at any point.
We have enjoyed every minutes of the trip , just did not enjoyed the food , it is ok not important otherwise it really worth the money we paid
This tour made a real difference in our visit of Naples. Our guide was very knowledgable and eager to show us as many landmarks as possible. We got to see many monuments, entered multiple churches, visited Castel Dell'Ovo, learnt many interesting stories about different neighbourhoods. Our guide had an answer to every question. And at the end we got a local pastry as promised :-)
The museum has large collection of items from Pompeii and Herculaneum and is worth visiting. These items cannot be found onsite at Pompeii or Herculaneum and the museum does complete your visit of the area. The museum itself could you use some modernisation, but the exhibits are great value for money.
