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
We had a very interesting tour with our guide Alex, he showed us the highlights but also hidden streets of Naples. He told us historical facts and gave us insights in local customs. Good English and very friendly, great hospitality. We even enjoyed some pastries during the tour.
5 of us went on a day trip including Pompei and the Amalfi Coast. Our driver Massimo, arranged a guide to take us around Pompei and we learnt masses from our guide. We then drove along the Amalfi coast stopping for coffee, lunch and ice-creams. It was a great day and Massimo was able to tell us a lot about the coastline as we drove. We have lots of great memories.
Really Great Tour from Naples to all the locations included with the tour. Our tour guide, Lea was doing a great job at commentating through the whole of our journey. She was very energetic and welcoming. The tour was not tiring at all. All the mountain View and the Sea View were so panoramic that Italy has got me to fall in love with its culture and places. I still remember the views of Sorrento, Positano and the Amalfi coast. Really enjoyed. I do Recommend this tour.
Views were beautiful, weather was good. To give free time in all the towns - excellent idea. Evertyhing went smoothly, the guide was good. Answered all the questions i had. He provided an interesting information, even gossip about stars living or having their holiday time in Amalfi coast. If u wanna know, for example, how Sophia Loren vila looks - go to this tour. Never in hurry, everything on time.
Had great guides in Michaela and Barbara. Well informed and passionate about making entire experience very enjoyable for entire group. Lunch was only disappointing part
