Destination guide

The home of pizza and pasta... what more must you know?

Naples is Italy's third largest city, and thrives on 2 things—its edgy vibe and its food scene. You see, Naples is home to some of the country's best pizza, pasta, and coffee. It's these gourmet staples that keep travelers coming back, and no one will be surprised if that's your own main reason for booking a Naples vacation rental. Other reasons to love this sprawling city? Its museums, Roman ruins (this is Italy, after all), waterfront locale, and Mediterranean weather.

Things to do

Sigh... if only there was a Museo di Pizza

For the days you opt to stay close to your Naples vacation rental, there are plenty of museums and Roman attractions to keep you and your crew happily occupied. In between stops for pizza and coffees on the beach, be sure to explore the museum scene. Visit the Sansevero Chapel Museum, or brush up on your history at the Galleria Borbonica. The Museo del Tesoro di San Gennaro, which houses a host of fascinating treasures, is also not to be missed. Take the kids to the Zoo di Napoli, or stroll around the Botanical Garden of Naples.


Learning the ins and out of this pretty, gritty city

One of the best ways to learn more about Naples is to... leave. Sure, there's plenty to do and see in the city itself, and it's well worth your time. But taking a guided tour of the surrounding area—including Pompeii, Mt. Vesuvius, and the Amalfi Coast—will give you better insight into how the city has evolved into what it is today, and its important role in the Roman and Italian world. Back in the city, opt for a walking tour or a cooking class to truly experience the heart of this pretty, gritty city.


Don't worry, carboloading is in season all year long

The best time for sightseeing in Naples is in the spring and fall. April, May, September, and October all offer practically perfect weather, with smaller crowds and lower prices. Book your Naples vacation rental well in advance if you want to visit in June or July, as the summer tends to be hot, dry, and more crowded. August, on the other hand, empties out as the locals head off on their own vacations for the month. November is Naples's wettest month, and the temps drop considerably from December through February.

Natural features

A bustling city nestled just above Italy's ankle

Naples is situated on the front of Italy's boot, just above the ankle... or the southwest coast, if you'd rather be technical. The city overlooks the Gulf of Naples, and lies between the volcanic regions of Mount Vesuvius and the Campi Flegrei. Naples serves as a main ferry port for reaching some of the upscale resort islands nearby, including Procida, Capri, and Ischia, as well as Sorrento, Positano, and the Amalfi Coast on the mainland. The surrounding coastline consists of rocky cliffs and pebbled beaches, as well as caves and formations that rise up from the sea.
