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
The tour was excellent and patched together history of Naples from Greek and Roman to WWII and 1989. For the 10€ cost, it’s the best value tour we went on all trip. Great guide and tour that went for the full time - a couple of parts continue after the main underground to explore the Roman Theater.
Sandra and Andrea were veey informative on our way to Pompei. Our guide at pompei was also super. We had a short stop in Naples and the restaurant we ate at was forgettable. However, our goal was to see Pompei and the tour guides providing lots of historical and cultural information in a personable way made it a great excursion nonetheless.
Capri and Anacapri in the off season (December) might seem as not the best locations to visit, but I can tell you that you must visit it in the off season. Both towns offer some breath taking views and experiences and with fewer tourists, we have one of the best chances to capture memories for a lifetime. The tour itself was we organized, we had the tour operator hand us tickets for the boat from Naples to Capri; there was a guide who met us at the other side and helped us along on all the bus rides to Anacapri first and then Capri later. He said the perfect amount of details and provided just the right amount of help when needed. A perfectly organized tour with great guides for a magical place - well done!
The pizza chef is really open and kind and he teaches how to make a good pizza, full of tips and insider's tips. You can learn a lot about not only what it makes a good pizza but also about the Napoli culture, laughing together.
We could not have asked for a better tour of Pompeii and Sorrento. We were connected to a very knowledgeable guide in Pompeii who provided us with an in-depth small group tour of the ruins. I had been there before with a large group but this was so much better!! We stopped at a local pizza restaurant in route to Sorrento. Inexpensive and good! Sorrento was beautiful with the Christmas decorations. We had plenty of time to walk the streets and shop. And the best part - we had a private car with driver who skillfully got us from place to place without that “bus” experience. What a pleasant experience! I would book with this company again.
