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 whole experience was great for the presence of our Guide Nancy! Her energy and personality make this historical journey a fun adventure full of interesting facts about life and death of this petrified city. Don't be scared of crowds she knows her way in and out every part and "navigate" through the site like an expert captain. Enjoy her jokes and her Mythology tales while she takes care of you and make sure you have everything you need. Her fluent English and bubbly personality, together with a capturing narrative that really shows her passion for her job, told a story and created an experience that I will remember for sure! Thanks Nancy!
The tour was great! Only complaint is that pickup time was very unclear. The only info we got was 9-10am; we waited at the location all that time before calling the company at 10am and being told the tour would be there at 10:20 (it was). However customer service was very helpful and responded quickly! Comfortable bus for the 25 min ride to Pompeii, once there we met our English guide. She was very informative and fun for the two hours in Pompeii! Lunch was good, nothing special but very filling. On the bus to Vesuvius we switched guides again, Alex made many jokes and told us a lot about landmarks on the drive up! The hike itself is steep but we had ~50 min at Vesuvius and that was more than enough to complete it with time for pictures at the top (we went all the way to the end of the hike). It rained and was foggy at the top, but we still saw some amazing views! Overall would definitely recommend this tour!
The trip took in Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi so there was so much to see. However we did it all and had a lovely lunch on the way. The guide Martina was so lovely and knowledgeable and the driver Antonio kept us safe amongst the crazy drivers and extremely steep hills!!
Very good, he was in time with all schedule, funny and very professional !!! Very nice trip...go, you won't regret !
Our driver, Vincenzo Esposito, was very entertaining throughout our trip. He gave us a lot of history and described the local scenery and things going on between Napoli and Positano, of which he is very knowledgable. The main road was closed causing major delays with traffic but our driver/guide made the trip very interesting and comfortable. Thanks Vincenzo
