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.

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.

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

She was knowledgeable and easy to talk to.

I loved this museum and I am very happy I had a private guide. She was an archaeologist, and was able to speak knowledgeably about all the artwork . I was very impressed.

Brilliant guides, very well organized tour.

Everything was on schedule. Our two guides, one Italian/British and one Australian spoke perfect English and were very well prepared. The least favorable experience was the lunch, a quite ordinary plain pizza Margeritha, but what could you expect so close to a grand site like Pompeii with a lot of tourists.
Pompeii Full-Day Trip From Rome Reviewed by Espen, 10/23/2016

A full-on experience which was unforgettable.

The staff were very helpful and friendly from the moment we met in the morning. Both guides were extremely informative and interesting, not only about the actual trip but helpful hints and suggestions that made our holiday even better. Our two guides, Andy and Anna added to the wonderful experience of Pompeii. Unfortunately, the weather turned for the worse in the afternoon which made the walk up to the crater of Vesuvius a disappointing one. The rain was forecast for the afternoon so if the two parts of the trip could be interchangeable then it would have made for a perfect day. The guide at Pompeii was also fantastic and I would highly recommend doing it this way as opposed to doing it yourself. Overall, a brillant experience.

A wonderful experience, the highlight of our trip to Naples

A special thanks to Giovanni, Giuseppe and Allesandro who were wonderful. We felt totally safe, in the Naples traffic on the Vespa's with them. Giovanni was also a wonderful tour guide and gave us lots of information on the city and its famous sights. We highly recommend this tour. Book it - you won't regret it.
