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.

Super fun and friendly, the first thing my girlfriend and I did when we got back to England was go straight home and make some more pasta. I would recommend to anyone, whatever age or ability. Lucia will make sure you have a brilliant time and eat some delicious food.
Included transportation, lunch and wine tasting with amazing views over the area, we will definitely visit again! My regret is not having my cash with me to tip!
The bus was a half hour late getting to the meeting point. "Traffic." The bus was comfortable and we stopped at Casino for a break. The rest stop was near the foot of Monte Casino of WWII fame. Interesting to see. In spite of drizzle and light rain most of the time, we enjoyed the visit. Having a guided tour helped. Carmelo was a good guide. The bus driver was from Casino and on the way back to Rome we stopped at a local deli. I welcomed the chance to get some salami - we had been buying salamis and dry ham since back in Barcelona. We ended up with some very good venison salami. When we arrived back in Rome it was pouring rain and the bus driver let us off within a couple blocks of our hotel. Also, our tour assistants, Francesca and Joya, were very good at their jobs. So, five stars in spite of being initially late.
Our guide Linda was excellent. Informative and interesting. Good group courtesy informing where she was located for any stragglers. Well done. Onto train off and on again without a glitch. Good to do this tour early and have the rest of the afternoon free.
This tour was really excellent! We had only 5 days in Naples, and wanted to see as much as we could in that time. This tour suited us perfectly! Some folks were impatient as they had little time to get things done, however if you follow their lead and have an easy-going attitude you will have an excellent time. *NOTE* - PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO EVERYTHING THE BUS TOUR GUIDES SAY! They are keeping things moving and there are a lot of groups going to different places (Sorrento etc), so you may be on a different bus from the bus that took you to Pompeii when it's time to head to Vesuvius. They order you based on where they picked you up - and they have your names too. You just really have to pay attention and be sure you listen carefully to where The Vesuvius bus is eating etc. The Pompeii tour was incredible and hit all the hot spots, but it moves quickly. You could spend a whole day in Pompeii, if you have the time - however, the tour gave us much more than any self guided trip
