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 left Naples on the bus on time. The bus was comfortable and there was plenty of room. There was no problem with finding the meeting point or with the tickets. Unfortunately, the bus was far later arriving at the Airport than advertised, which mean't that we had a dash to get through security etc.
Not to be cheeky but Fabrizio made Pompeii come to life. He kept all of our attention as we worked our way throughout the City of Pompeii. I would highly recommend Fabrizio.
Having discovered that Naples is a bit grotty, we managed to catch the train to Pompeii not to the Ruins of Pompeii, so we were running late when we got to the entrance of the Ruins. It did not matter as our guide, Paula, took this in her stride and ensured we got to see the best of Pompeii Ruins in 2 hours. She was very knowledgeable, witty and helpful. She ensured we got back on the right train, in time to get back to Naples to catch our express train Rome. Our only regret us that we did not have longer to spend at Pompeii Ruins. Well worth going to see Pompeii Ruins and definitely worth having a guide, especially Paula.
We were in Rome and tours out of Rome were very expensive. This tour was reasonably priced and took us to the beautiful Amalfi coast. We took the 7 am train out of Rome Termini and was picked up right in front of the station. We had some traffic on our way back but had plenty of time to catch the 6 pm train back to Rome. The tour guide was excellent and gave us great info at Pompeii and on the drive along the coast. Highly recommend.
Our tour guide, Laura, was very knowledgeable of the entire journey. I highly recommend this trip to anyone looking to Travel to Naples / Mt. Vesuvius!!
