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

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

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

Great tour with lots of information and things to do.

This tour was easy to book and good information for meeting points and times. There is a physical demand due to rough terrain and walking. Very manageable but something to be aware of. The tour guide was great, very informative and fun. Good driver too :) The rest stops were appreciated and the store had some unique items to purchase that were local products. Great value and worth your time.

Pompeii & Mt. Vesuvius: Full-Day Trip from Rome Reviewed by Koreen, 07/17/2018

Interesting looking at the restoration work undertaken at the site.

Very interesting but you do need the audio assistance and/or guide to gain a full appreciation of the site and its secrets.

An informative, well organised Tour that I would highly recommend!

I researched this tour online for months, unsure how to do it as there were so many options and also many different (and often not so flattering) reviews. Get Your Guide tour reviews were the most appealing and now I understand why. It's so well organised! There was no HFrom the moment we met our guide at the square, until we exited the bus, Andrea Cahonghi, our guide was PERFECT! He was knowledgeable about the country, it's history, the culture, which he mixed with the right amount of humour to keep us all captivated (even my 3 young children). He explained everything but included some quiet time too. The lunch was lovely... it came with a nice explanation from Andrea which made it something more special to look too. The other guide we had in Pompei was TOO AMAZING!!!!! He had us all laughing and enjoying every bit of his presentation. It was brilliant! When we exited, I forgot my cell phone and Andrea ran after us to return it. I'M SO GLAD WE DID THIS TOUR.

Amazing and intimate class with enthusiastic hosts!

We thought ourselves extremely lucky to be welcomed into Lucia’s family home for our class. The recipes were delicious but simple enough that we thought we would be able to replicate them back home. The ingredients were fresh and absolutely divine - with the highlight being a juicy ball of buffalo mozzarella that we got with Lucia from a shop nearby. We would highly recommend this class to anyone visiting Naples. We were the only 2 people in the class and had two experienced chefs teaching us so thought it represented fantastic value! Enjoy!

Interesting however definitely need a guide or at least a map

Bigger than you think. We needed more information about booking a guide before we commenced our hike of Pompeii.
