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.

National Archaeological Museum

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.

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

Castel dell'Ovo

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.

Planning Your Naples Visit

How long should I stay in Naples?

Four days or so should cover the basics - take out whole days for trips outside of Naples, such as to Pompeii and Herculaneum.

How walkable is Naples?

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

A dream trip, complete and very well organized.

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.

Absolutely worth the price, incredible amount of info and history

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!

Best tour on this trip, our guide was excellent

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.

Excellent overall, Francesco our driver was kind and knowledgeable!

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.

An interesting guided tour of some of the main attractions in Pompeii

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!
