The area and getting around
The city of Naples is located in Italy's southern region known as the Mezzogiorno. It is a seaside city, located on the sweeping Bay of Naples and overlooked by the imposing ‘super’ volcano of Mount Vesuvius. Its Old Town is a UNESCO Cultural Heritage site, with its narrow alleyways leading to mystical churches, catacombs and a profusion of cherubic restaurants.Live it up in west Naples
Away from the hubbub of the city centre, the Vomero neighbourhood is an upscale area situated in a hilly part of the city to the west of the centre. It offers lovely views over the Old Town and city as a whole, the Gulf of Naples and the Vesuvius standing tall in the background, making it for many the number one area of choice for holiday rentals in Naples. Shopaholics beware! Nearby Chiaia is the heart of urban chin in Naples, filled with Italian designer shops and opulent apartments. It’s parks are also a great place to come and relax for some peace and quiet after a day in the rambunctious downtown area!
Travellers and activities
Ask any Italian where the best pizza in Italy comes from, and the answer will be Napoli. The spiritual home of pizza since its invention in the 19th century, the Neapolitans have raised it to a fine art. Pizzeria Dal Presidente is probably the most revered and popular pizza establishment in Naples. Located in the heart the city, it draws crowds with prestige, heritage and flavour alike.Naples for history buffs
A mesmerising open-air Mediterranean museum, Naples delights culture vultures and history buffs with its myriad historic monuments and statues. The top historical attraction is the nearby archaeological site of Pompeii, the remains of a Roman city destroyed by a volcano in 79 A.D. Make sure to dedicate an entire day to this experience, take your time, stroll down the ancient streets and simply ponder what it must have been like to live in Pompeii when it was a thriving, ancient city.
The very first pizzeria in Italy and the entire world, Antica Pizzeria Port’Alba, was opened in Naples in 1830, and it remains open till this day!
Top 5 travel tips in Naples
In Naples, the underground is where you bury your loved ones and encounter their souls, and the city is home to a cast underground network of catacombs, which are incredibly well preserved and date back a full 1,400 years. Explore the two levels, with the lower being pagan, and the upper from the Roman Empire.2. Explore one of the world’s oldest fortifications
The Castel dell’Ovo is a 15th-century castle on the peninsula of Megaride, just outside Naples. Entrance is free and its towers offer some of the best views over the stunning Bay of Naples. Take note – the narrow streets surrounding the castle offer a utopian mix of quaint fish restaurants and traditional pizzerias!3. Head down to the Galleria Borbonica
Conceived in 1853 as an escape route from the Royal Palace, the Bourbon Tunnel represents an emotional journey through the history of the underground of Naples. Of particular interest is how it was used during WW2, and a guide will take you to bomb shelters stocked with provisions and 1940s cars and scooters still parked there from the war. Truly fascinating stuff!Tour the seat of passion in Naples
Stadio San Paolo, home to Napoli, is a 60,000-seat stadium where some of the world's most famous players have plied their trade, such as the one and only Diego Maradona. If you can get there on a match day, you can experience one of the most electrifying atmospheres to be experienced in any stadium in Europe.5. Take a boat trip to the secret island of Naples
Procida is the smallest island in the Bay of Naples and despite being a short boat ride from the city is overlooked by most foreign tourists. You will be met by a tangle of houses painted in pink, yellow, blue and green, inviting you to explore its winding narrow streets, high medieval walls and lush parks. With its special, authentic feel, a day trip to Procida is the ideal way to round off your exploration of this fascinating part of the world.
