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

Worth it for a carefree, well organized day tour

I would definitely recommend the tour to people interested in experiencing a carefree excursion while visiting a historic place. Our pick-up meeting point was just down the street from our accommodation, so there was no stress of figuring out how to get there in the morning. Elisa, our guide to Pompeii, was very professional, multilingual and seemed to have a lot of experience. After Pompeii we had lunch at the cafeteria, where we could chose between 3 dishes (pasta, pizza or lasagna), which was perfectly fine, especially because u wouldn’t want to have a heavy three course meal before walking up the path to Mt. Vesuvius in Italy’s August heat. Last but not least I’d like to mention our bus driver Guiseppe who showed perfect driving skills maneuvering the bus up the winding streets to Mt. Vesuvius. Of course one should be aware that the path up Mt. V. itself is less a hiking experience than a walk up to the crater, leaving u nevertheless with beautiful& impressive views over Naples.

Perfect guidance with clear, competent and comprehensiv informations

Our guide Luciano Leone fulfilled our expectations completely. As empassionated archeologist working in Herculaneum he knew all about this site from his profession. Very polite to seniors, friendly to children and adults showing us additional illustrations and photographs! Luciano gave easy to understand explanations to all relevant topics like the eruption of the Vulkano Vesuv, the life of the ancient inhabitants of Herculaneum, former buiding architecture, paintings and many more. We were totally confinced having choosen the right provider and had a great day at Herculaneum.

Great trip to Pompei and Mount Vesuvius, but should start earlier

The bus was colecting people from hotels for a while and only arrived to Pompei at around 11 am, where an English speaking guide showed us the hotspots of the archeologic site, for about 2 hours. We then had a reasonable lunch (pizza, lasagna or tomato spagetti) at a restaurant nearby. The climb to Mt Vesuvius started at 3 pm, when it was 35 degrees Celsius; although it’s only 200 mts, it was really difficult. Therefore, my only suggestion would be to start collecting people one hour before, at 08.30, then proceed to Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii after lunch.

Great day, informative and a must do when in the area

We arrived at Pompei early which was great - we got there before most of the crowds. Our guide, Laura, was great - really knowledgeable and highlighted all the key parts of the site educating us about the history as well. Would also recommend this tour as it was definitely worth visiting Herculaneum, which was very different to Pompei. We had pre paid the entrance fees but most people on the tour hadn’t - make sure you bring cash for this! Laura had a great temperament and did a really good job - she made the tour.

Excellent Communication and value for the price!

We were traveling from the US to Europe with family and friends and I was in charge of finding the right excursions. After hours of online research and going in circles, I stumbled upon GetYourGuide and it was incredible! We used them for several excursions. Their pricing, communication and value exceeding our expectations. I wouldn't use anyone else in the future.
