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.

Gesu Nuovo

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

Informative & very interesting tour of Pompeii

My husband & I enjoyed seeing this amazing archeological site with our guide. She spoke English quite well & was very informative, unfortunately I don’t remember her name but I think it was Hillary. I can’t imagine seeing Pompeii for the first time without a tour guide. The site is huge & the guide told us details about each “building”. She gave us information about daily life in Pompeii, the eruption of Vesuvius and many more details about the bath houses, the “Red Light District”, the streets and so on. At the end of the tour we were allowed to stay at the site and see more things on our own. We took the local Circumvesuviana train from Sorrento to Pompeii & met our guide close to the train stop. The directions provided were helpful & easy to follow. The only reason I didn’t rate it 5 stars is because we felt that the guide was at times rushed and didn’t allow enough time to take pictures, we also had to walk fast to stay in the group.

Best of Pompeii Tour: Unveiling the Buried City Reviewed by Myriam, 07/12/2019

Fantabulous tour experience by Robert M. from CityWonders

The tour experience is likened to a delizioso tagliolini in aglio olio. The lovely sights are like main ingredients; olive oil, garlic & red pepper flakes coming together in a large pan and Robert is the chef! He is the one that strings all the important pieces together to make this an unforgettable experience for us. Robert is very knowledgeable with all the historical cultures of not only Pompeii but also of Italy. He shared many interesting legends and stories that makes the whole journey so much fun and enjoyable. Robert is also super caring towards everyone in making sure that we’re feeling comfortable and doing alright. His subliminal dark humour is already worth the ticket price for the tour, let alone all the invaluable insights and informations. i would give a 3 thumbs up if i can but last i checked, i have only 2 thumbs just like everyone else...so it’s a 2 thumbs up from me and 2 thumbs up from my wife!

Great tour and a great guide, This is an amazing bit of history.

Excellent tour from an archaeologist who worked on the site, lots of information, facts on how the excavations were done and the content and background to what we were actually seeing. It's incredible that this place is so intact after over 2000 years. Guide had brilliant knowledge of the different sites that were along the coast. I must say she was very attentive to us as visitors during what was a very hot spell at 40 deg C making sure during the tour that we had lots of water and broke up the tour by getting us into the shade to cool of. Me and my daughter thought the tour was worth every penny and would do it again when we bring the rest of the family there.

Excellence in information and entertainment ...

Mikaela B is the tour guide extraordinaire. Approachable, energetic, brilliant fund of knowledge, comfortable presentation for all patrons. Julio has the master driving skills. Everyone felt safe and confident with Julio at the transportation helm. Consideration: condition of bus was poor: dirty windows, interior was very unclean, seats need repair. CityWonder professional staff are too good to be compromised by less than satisfactory facilities.

Francesca was thouroughly knowledgeble on Pompeii unstumpable

Francesca was thouroughly knowledgeble on Pompeii and was never stumped by odd or unusual questions. She seem to anticipate what we wanted before we asked. She was calm and cool even in the 42C heat. I would recommend this tour. Manuela, our guide in Sorrento knew all the good spots to shop in the small town especially the best gelato (Primavera!) and the best limoncello spots.
