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
This tour made a real difference in our visit of Naples. Our guide was very knowledgable and eager to show us as many landmarks as possible. We got to see many monuments, entered multiple churches, visited Castel Dell'Ovo, learnt many interesting stories about different neighbourhoods. Our guide had an answer to every question. And at the end we got a local pastry as promised :-)
The museum has large collection of items from Pompeii and Herculaneum and is worth visiting. These items cannot be found onsite at Pompeii or Herculaneum and the museum does complete your visit of the area. The museum itself could you use some modernisation, but the exhibits are great value for money.
I was picked up at my hotel by the Guide and Driver. Right away I knew I was in very good hands. The tour was informative and they even shared plenty of jokes with me as I was the only one on the tour. Was impressive the amount of added detail that was added. Thank you very much, definately would recomend to others. :-)
The guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable but not boring. Really knew her stuff and kept it interesting, didn't want to see her go after the two hours, should have booked her for all day.
A massive site that was awesome in places but the audio guide could have been more informative.
