Top attractions 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
Enjoyable evening with an opportunity to get my hands ‘dirty’. Very pleased with the finished pizza that I made.
The day before our tour I was sent photos of the meeting point and of our guide Felicia, which were very helpful. We covered so many things in the 2 hour tour and were able to ask questions any time. Our guide was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. Would recommend booking a guide for this activity as the information you find out is worth the additional cost.
I spent with my girlfriend the weekend in Neaples and I found via getyourguide and eatwith the very nice possibility to learn more about Neapolitanean people and their food specialities. We met Gaetano, a local chef and owner of a retaurant and his lovely family. We cooked togehther, learned about the way how traditional Pasta gets prepared and had a fantastic time icluding an opulent 3-way lunch. Highly recommended!
The tour was excellent and patched together history of Naples from Greek and Roman to WWII and 1989. For the 10€ cost, it’s the best value tour we went on all trip. Great guide and tour that went for the full time - a couple of parts continue after the main underground to explore the Roman Theater.
Sandra and Andrea were veey informative on our way to Pompei. Our guide at pompei was also super. We had a short stop in Naples and the restaurant we ate at was forgettable. However, our goal was to see Pompei and the tour guides providing lots of historical and cultural information in a personable way made it a great excursion nonetheless.
