Naples Travel Guide

As you explore Naples, you'll find yourself amidst ancient monuments that stand as stoic witnesses to time's passage, noisy streets that buzz with life and Vespas, and a unique cityscape that is only as modern as it needs to be. There are many reasons to visit — from its underground world and its incomprehensible history to its easy proximity to other Italian gems like Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast — and you’ll find most of them in this guide.

But let's talk pizza — the crown jewel of Neapolitan cuisine, crafted with ancestral love with a heritage that's fiercely protected. You've never truly tasted pizza until you've had it in Naples.

Museums like the National Archaeological Museum hold treasures that rival any in Rome or Florence. Want a break from the urban hustle? Day trips to Pompeii, Sorrento, Capri, and Amalfi Coast are there for you if you can tear yourself away.

When the sun is out, and it usually is, Naples' beaches invite you to unwind. Stroll along Posillipo's scenic coast, or bask in the hidden gems like Marechiaro, where locals flock for a serene escape from city life.
