Travel tips for Naples trips

What are some interesting things to do on a trip to Naples?
  • Explore neighboring islands. Naples’ bayside location makes the city an ideal jumping-off point for day trips to nearby islands, such as glamorous Capri. Travelers on our Italy & Greece tour can set sail across the Bay of Naples for Capri on an included guided sightseeing tour.
  • Stroll along the waterfront. Many of Naples’ highlights are situated along the water’s edge, making them easy to explore on foot.
  • Take a funicular ride. Several funiculars, or inclined railways, transport riders up prominent hills in Naples. Hop on for hilltop views during your free time on tour.
  • Visit a nearby agriturismo. For a taste of locally grown produce and homemade dishes, travelers on our A Week in Italy: Naples, Sorrento & Rome tour can visit an agriturismo (a farm where guests can stay and dine) in Sorrento, roughly an hour’s drive from Naples.

Meeting local farmers and tasting traditional foods are just a couple reasons why visiting an agriturismo in Italy is one of our top five cultural must-have moments on tour.

When is the best time of year to visit Naples?

Each season brings out a different side of Naples. Here are some tips to keep in mind when browsing our Naples tours.

  • March through May. Travelers who visit Naples in the springtime will enjoy mild weather and fewer crowds compared to the height of summer. This time of year is also ideal for travelers on Naples vacations who hope to explore nearby islands, such as Capri, thanks to calm waters in the Bay of Naples.

  • June through August. Summer is peak travel season in Italy. Naples is no exception, so plan to visit Naples in the summertime if you enjoy the energy that comes with having lots of other travelers around. Weather can be hot and humid in the summertime, so consider Naples tour packages that depart this time of year if you're a warm-weather traveler.

  • September through November. Travelers on tours to Naples in the fall will also experience milder temperatures, and likely some rain. Summer crowds will have returned home, too, so if you want to experience a quieter side of Naples, consider tours of Naples this time of year.

  • December through February. Between December and February in Naples, temperatures tend to hover in the mid-50s, and conditions range from sunny to cloudy. Travelers who book Naples travel packages for December will also have opportunities to enjoy festive, Christmas decorations and events.

What are the top attractions to see in Naples?

Naples is chock-full of fascinating museums, as well as archaeological and historical sites. Here are a few highlights you can check out on our trips to Naples.

  • Castel dell’Ovo. This seaside castle sits on a peninsula in the Bay of Naples. Travelers who visit Naples with us can see it on a guided tour of the city.

  • National Archaeological Museum. Among other relics of Italian history, this impressive museum houses objects from Pompeii and Herculaneum, cities that were destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79.

  • Royal Palace of Caserta. The UNESCO-listed, Baroque-style palace is one of the largest in Europe. It served as headquarters for the Allied troops during WWII and has played host to historic events. Travelers on our A Week in Italy: Naples, Sorrento & Rome tour can visit on an optional excursion.

  • Royal Palace of Naples. History buffs who visit Naples won’t want to miss the Palazzo Reale di Napoli, which was built in the 17th century by Spaniards who occupied the city then.

  • Museo Cappella Sansevero. This museum’s most famous highlight is an 18th-century marble sculpture, entitled “Veiled Christ,” by Neapolitan artist Giuseppe Sanmartino.

  • Catacombe di San Gennaro. Many travelers who travel on our guided tours to Naples spend time exploring these catacombs, which date to the second century and are the final resting place of San Gennaro. The site houses underground graves, art, fifth-century mosaics, and more.

  • Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. In A.D. 79, Mount Vesuvius violently erupted, burying the city of Pompeii under several feet of ash. Travelers who visit the sites on our Naples tours can discover what life was like in Pompeii 2,000 years ago, before the volcano erupted.

What to pack for a tour in Naples?

With these essentials in your suitcase, you’ll be prepared, and comfortable, on any of our Naples, Italy, tours.

  • Lightweight, loose-fitting clothing that can be easily layered to accommodate varying temperatures, as well as a light jacket or rainwear.
  • Comfortable, sturdy walking shoes for sightseeing tours.
  • Dressier attire if you plan to visit a high-end restaurant or attend a special performance.
  • A small cross-body or belt bag to keep your cash, credit cards, and other essentials within easy reach.
  • Pants, dresses, shirts, and skirts that cover your shoulders and legs. Many churches and other religious sites deny entrance to visitors with bare legs and shoulders.

What are some common foods and dishes to order in Naples?
  • Street food. Travelers on Naples trips can find the city’s popular street food everywhere from fairs to festivals to markets. Fried seafood, potato croquettes, the calzone-like panzerotti, and plenty more tasty treats are conveniently bite-sized and packaged for eating on the go.
  • Spaghetti alle vongole. This popular dish consisting of spaghetti, clams, olive oil, white wine, pepper flakes, and little else is simple—and so delicious.
  • Pizza margherita. Naples is the birthplace of pizza, and no visit to the city would be complete without enjoying several slices of its famous tomato-and-mozzarella pie.
  • Sfogliatelle. Visit any local pasticceria, or pastry shop, in the city and you’re likely to find this flaky Neapolitan pastry, known for its flaky layers and sweet, creamy filling.

What should I know before visiting Naples?

Here are a few things to keep in mind when preparing for one of our Naples guided tours.

Italian is the official language of Naples, but locals speak the Napolitano, or Neapolitan, dialect. Say:

  • “Grazij” when you want to thank someone.
  • “Me chiamme [your name]…” when you want to introduce yourself to a new acquaintance.
  • “Pe piacere” or “Pe favore” when you want to say “please.”
  • “Scusateme” when you’re making your way through a busy market or cultural site. It means “Excuse me.”

Keep your money close. Pickpockets can be a problem in Naples, especially in crowded places, at popular tourist landmarks, on the metro, and at train stations. Keep your belongings secured in a money belt whenever possible.

The euro is Italy’s official currency. Credit cards are widely accepted, but keep some euros on hand for transactions at street markets and in smaller shops.
