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
Although we arrived at the meeting point in good time, because there were so many other groups in the area it was very difficult to find our guide which was quite stressful. Other members of the group had the same problem. This caused quite a long delay and this could have been avoided if the guide had identified herself more clearly. Once we got going we enjoyed the tour and our guide clearly knew her stuff and was happy to answer questions. The group was perhaps a little too large and at times when we were spread out, it was difficult to hear what she was saying because she was out of range of the headset.
Our tour was well organised and led by a highly knowledgeable and personable guide. Luciano brought the ancient city to life, so we could imagine being there and he added some humorous anecdotes along the way. He was passionate & enthusiastic about the archeological history of the site and described the various discoveries in a way we could all understand. The tour was well paced & comfortable, with plenty of stops in the shade and the 2 hours seemed to fly by.
Exceeded our expectations! This was the best tour we have ever been on thanks to Grace. Her love for the history of Pompeii was so evident. She was very proud to have the credentials to be an authorized guide and her knowledge was superb! We would highly recommend this tour!
This site is so much better than Pompeii! The restoration and vision of what had been is clearly amazing. We took the train from Sorrento to the Ecoland Sevia stop. We were lucky there were no crowds and it was an easy walk from the train station. Highly recommend!
Really enjoyed the day. Pompeii was great as was Vesuvius & had a nice pizza for lunch as well. It’s really easy having someone who knows where to go, liaising with the guide at Pompeii & arranging pickup/drop of times. Well worth the cost.
