Top Tours & Activities 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 thoroughly enjoyed our tour of both Pompeii and Herculaneum thanks to the expertise of our guide. He was both an expert on the history as well as the art of these ancient cities and really put the lives and culture of their inhabitants into a personal context. I highly recommend this tour.
Picked up (& returned to hotel, door-door) with transfers to a coach. Full day activtity, very informative and fun along the way. Giovanni, the bus driver did a fantastic job driving along the Amalfi coastal road, made us feel very safe. Tour guide, Mina was very knowledgeable & made the day very enjoyable. We had a great time!!!
I recommend this trip and tour operators, an excellent day to see fantastic sights. Beautiful views of Amalfi , a little bit of everything squeezed into one day. Fantastic spot for lunch, finishing with the highlights of Pompeii which did not disappoint! The time there did not feel rushed and we felt that we had seen a good overview .Excellent guide there and looked after well for the whole trip by Laura the bus guide and the driver.
Never expected we would be so impressed by Pompei. A must see for every visitor in the neighbourhood of Napoli. The Vesuvius was also interesting, but our main goal was Pompei. We had a very good guide Enrico who brought the history alive and told us many details. The girls who guided us the whole journey from Rome, to Napoli, Vesuvius and Pompei - Paula and Inge - were great too. Everything went 'ups a daisy' also thanks to our busdriver who brought us save home to Rome.
Lunch food was very disappointing, was cold and tasteless. We also were told we would get 3 courses when booking but only got 2- salad and pasta, with no desert provided. Otherwise your was great with lots of stops to see Amalfi, sorrento and positano!
