Highlights of Naples
Snuggled into the coast of Campania with an urban area incorporating four million inhabitants, Naples is one of Europe's best-kept secrets.
1. Naples: Amalfi Coast
A true jewel of the Mediterranean, a drive along the Amalfi Coast will dazzle you.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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!
6. 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.

What people are saying about Naples
We had a lovely time with Mariangela (the tour guide) and Rosario (the driver). I would recommend the trip to however wants to see and enjoy the main attractions of the Amalfi coast in a nutshell especially if you are clueless about where/how to go. The driver was very experienced on the narrow roads along the coast and our tour guide kept us very engaged with all the narrations and legends around that area. The trip was very informative and enjoyable.
We are staying in Sorrento at an AirBNB and they picked us up at our door. The driver both directions was excellent! The tour guide was great, she took us through the most important parts of Pompeii, and alternated full sun and shade. The headsets were okay, one had a lot of static so check it before moving away from the headset collection point.
Excellent tour!! Pompeii & Herculaneum are both fascinating and we’re particularly brought to life by our passionate guide Diego. He really made the day for us, best guide we’ve had it Italy. He was fun & knowledgeable. Thanks Diego! I would also say the tour is well structured, giving time for lunch etc.
Everything was perfect. On our way back to Rome was a bit long. It was sunday so.. traffic war really strong. But Pompeii is amazing. And Vesuv was also really interesting.
Brilliant evening, really good fun in a chilled environment. Passion for pizza is very evident. Would highly recommend
