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
I was impressed by the boat available, very spacious, strong and well-maintained. The chosen route allowed us to see the most impressive places between Sorento and Amalfi. I appreciated that we were able to swim in two spectacular waters with azure water. The time spent on Amalfi and Positano was enough to see the main goals.
I stayed near the back of the group so I could take photos of the rooms and tunnels once they had emptied out--got some really cool photos that way. We loved hearing about the history of the underground and how it has been used over the millennia. What a great info session!
Our tour guide took great care of us recommending an amazing place for lunch with a view of the Amalfi coast and great food. The private tour in Pompeii was also 1st class. This was the best tour we did this week. Highly recommend it.
I would recommended this service anytime you visit Italy. Our driver, Francesco, was excellent! He was kind, very knowledgeable, and made sure our transfer went smoothly. We were picked up at the end of the train station platform, and taken right up to the door of our Airbnb in Positano. We would definitely use this service again.
I just had a few hours in Pompeii so wanted to make the most of my time there. A guided tour seemed like the best way to cover a lot of territory in a short period of time. Sergio Pisco was my guide and he was engaging, informative and enthusiastic throughout, despite the oppressive heat!
