Naples

Travel Guide
San Francesco di Paola showing a square or plaza, a church or cathedral and night scenes
Classic architecture, a rich history, traditional pizza and underground caves make this Italian city a fascinating destination.

Naples is a modern Italian city with a rich history. Founded by the Greeks in the 6th century bc, the city offers decadent royal palaces, Art Nouveau architecture, and churches rich with religious art. The cobblestoned streets, often lined with small pizzerias and cafés, offer a taste of modern Italy and are filled with pedestrians and scooters.

Start your visit in the Centro Storico, Naples’ historic old town. In the old town, particular streets are dedicated to selling certain items, such as musical instruments or antique books.

Explore the city’s network of Greek- and Roman-era caves almost 100 feet (30 meters) below the streets. Back above ground, take a visit to the Capella Sansevero nearby. This quaint chapel was built in 1600 and contains many examples of Italian religious art. The Gesu Nuovo Church also has works of religious art, including reliefs and frescoes.

The Royal Palace is one of Naples’ most beautiful buildings. Inside, find immaculately preserved royal furnishings and the National Library. Wander the Castel dell’Ovo, on the island of Megaride just off Naples. This 15th century castle provides stunning views back to Naples and across to Mount Vesuvius.

Take a trip to Mount Vesuvius, a 40-minute drive east of Naples. The 4000-foot (1200-meter) high volcano is among Europe’s most active. In ad 79, the volcano erupted, destroying the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum and killing thousands of people. Today, walk to the crater summit for an unbeatable view up the coastline toward Naples. Below, explore the ruins of the lost city of Pompeii.

Also be sure to explore the cuisine, the city invented pizza. Join with the locals and try it with a tomato base and few embellishments.

Naples is a busy, beautiful Italian coastal city. Summer is a popular time to visit. Daytime temperatures in July average 85 degrees Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celsius).
