Destination guide

A slice of southern Italy on the Mediterranean coast

As Italy's third largest city, Naples is known for its edgy vibe, its urban grit, and its incomparable food scene. Though the rest of Italy may try to challenge this claim, Naples places first when it comes to pizza, pasta, and coffee. It's these gourmet staples that keep travelers coming back to this southern city, so consider looking at Naples vacation rentals with fully equipped kitchens if you want to try your hand at cooking with local ingredients. Don't shy away from exploring and enjoying its museums, Roman ruins, waterfront locale, and Mediterranean weather, either.

Things to do

Travel back in time (don't worry, there's still pizza)

Like much of Italy, Naples is full of museums, as well as enough Roman ruins and attractions to fill several vacations. While it may be heard to tear yourself away from another slice of Neapolitan pizza, be sure to visit the Sansevero Chapel Museum, as well as 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.


More piazzas than the New York Mets in charming Old Naples

Old Naples is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, and this may be the least surprising part of your visit. Stroll among the narrow lanes, and take in the city's the winding, gritty streets. Soon enough, you'll find the charm hidden within each cobbled piazza—it'll happen even quicker if you book a guided walking tour. If you're looking for a home base in the heart of it all, check out Naples vacation rentals in bustling Spaccanapoli. Excursions to the nearby Pompeii, Mt. Vesuvius, and the Amalfi Coast are all worth considering, too.


Summers sparkle, but winters are for warm meals and museums

Naples boasts nearly 300 days of sun annually, with temps in the 80s and 90s from June through August. Fortunately, many Naples vacation rentals come equipped with pools and shady gardens, but keep in mind: these are in high demand from May through September. Consider visiting in November, December, or January if you'd prefer a better deal with minimal crowds. After all, cold and rainy days are perfect for exploring the museum scene, sipping espresso in cozy cafes, and carboloading on pizza and pasta, right?

Natural features

Laid-back living in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius

As Pompeii will remind us, Naples is precariously positioned beneath one of Europe's most active volcanoes: Mount Vesuvius. Pay a visit to Vesuvius National Park for epic views of the Bay of Naples. The city itself overlooks the Gulf of Naples, and serves as a main ferry port with access to several 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, plus caves and formations that rise up from the sea.
