Naple City Guide

Classical architecture, the best pizzas and constant liveliness: Naples is still one of the most exciting Italian cities.

Naples is a modern Italian city with a fascinating history, which can be followed back to its founding by the Greeks in the sixth century BC. The city has decadent royal palaces, art nouveau architecture, fashion boutiques, stylish restaurants and churches packed with religious art – plenty to keep any visitor busy.

Start your visit at the Centro Storico, the historic old town of Naples. Get in amongst the narrow cobbled streets, the buzzing scooters, chatting tourists and sellers of curios items, such as instruments and antiques.

Everywhere you’ll see beautiful architecture, of which the Palazzo Reale (Royal Palace) with its grand and well-preserved furniture is the best example. The former military power of Naples is reflected in the two main castles Castel dell'Ovo (Castle of the Egg) and Castel Nuovo (New Castle). Those interested in religious art can fill several days exploring the many beautiful churches; the Gesù Nuovo and Cappella Sansevero are good places to start.

Make a trip to the nearby volcano Vesuvius to escape from the busy city centre. At the top of the 1200 meter high volcano, you can enjoy awesome views across Naples and visit the nearby cities of Pompei and Herculaneum, which in the year 79 were famously buried under Vesuvius’ ash and lava. After centuries of excavations, which are still in progress, the cities now provide an incredible insight into the ancient Roman life.

The city is also a foodie’s heaven, as Naples is where pizza was actually invented. Scattered throughout the city, on city squares, alleys and shopping malls, you will find specialized pizzerias with the most delicious pizza you've ever eaten.

The city is notorious for traffic, and its best that you leave driving to the locals. Don’t worry, there is a good metro network, which allows you to reach the city’s many top attractions with ease. If you're in close proximity to the city centre you can see many of the most interesting places on foot. You can also take a taxi, which is safe but expensive.

Naples once had the reputation of being an unsafe city. In modern Naples, you don’t have to be concerned about crime. In winter it can be quite wet, but if you come between March and October, the chances are that you will enjoy the warm Neapolitan sun.
