Teatro di San Carlo

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.

Gesu Nuovo

Gesu Nuovo

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!

Castel dell'Ovo

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.

When should I visit Naples?

All year round, but go between October and March to avoid crowds and very warm weather.

Anything else I should know?

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 loved our tour of the Island of Capri!

We had an awesome time learning more about the island and seeing the view from the top of the mountain. Our tour guide, Sabrina was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The water was rough that day and we weren’t able to do the blue grotto potion, which I was really looking forward to. Instead of me having to contact the company to request a partial refund, they reached out to me and handled everything. Thank you for an amazing day!

Christina was excellent- she makes us feel like family. We love her

Christina and driver if the van are both great! Just a comment on the local pompei guy- he is rude and he complains about almost everything and snaps at all the other tourist - he makes us feel uncomfortable.

Pompeii and Naples Small Group Tour from Rome Reviewed by raymund, 15/04/2019

Great trip, the combination of ruins and volcano made a fantastic duo

Loved both the ruins and the volcano, could have done with a bit longer in herculanium, but fantastic. The walk, and or climb, to the top of the volcano could floor some people, as some older people were attempting to do it, this might need to be made a bit clearer as it would catch people out and did I think for some, the walk being long and quite steep too. Well worth it when you get to the top though, and the views are to die for... A bit worrying when you think about it afterwards that this volcano is very active and could blow again at any time, that wouldn't stop me going up though... The history behind this sleeping giant is too rich to want to miss out on. The only downside was the lack of toilets on the whole site of the volcano, this could be catered for better, with the amount of people going, and the exercise they do to get to the top, does fill your bladder somewhat, and with no where to go, makes the trip back to Naples a bit uncomfortable. A toilet block please.

Excellent - a great overview of Pompeii with ease and comfort!

Superb tour of Pompeii - we had a fella names Paulo ... the "Indiana Jones of Pompeii". We were the perfectly sized group ... 14 people of which we were six. Our group ranged from 10 thru 86 and the tour was at a terrific pace and just enough to understand the life of Pompeii 2000 years ago. We could easily interact with Paulo (our guide) and dictate the style and areas we wanted to explore further ... he was so accommodating! This was the highlight of our trip to Italy ... thank you Paulo! We will return again and find you out for a personal tour!

A fantastic service from start to finish, with lovely wines to Savour!

Transportation is efficient and friendly. The hosts at the winery are do knowledgeable and friendly. We sampled five wines and a grappa, officially, with lovely, freshly-prepared food, but had the option of sampling two additional wines, and could even have enjoyed more. We had an interesting and entertaining tour of the vineyard from Giovanni, and Giusy and he were so attentive at our table. All wines are delicious, and all organically produced. This was our second visit within the year, and I'd more than happily go back in the very near future, (I'd happily go once a week if truth be told...just a shame that the vineyard isn't just around the corner)! Such a pleasurable experience. Alas, more to explore for me in the meantime... However, if you're in and around Naples, Amalfi or Sorrento etc be sure to add this activity to your itinerary...
