Two-Star Hotels near Naples’ Scenic Waterfront
One of the best ways to get a feel for Naples is to get out and about on foot. When the weather is nice, there are few better places for an afternoon stroll than Naples’ seafront promenade, known as the Lungomare. Local families and out-of-towners all converge here on the weekends to chat, walk and watch the water rolling in on the rocks. It stretches for a couple of miles, from the Mergellina neighbourhood all the way to the Castel dell'Ovo (Egg Castle), and beaches, boats and seafood restaurants are all dotted along the route.
Garden Escapes in the Heart of Naples
Naples can be a busy, even frenetic city. If you need a break from the urban hubbub, head for the Orto Botanico di Napoli. About a 20-minute walk north from Naples’ main train station, these glorious gardens are blissfully peaceful and quiet. About 9,000 plant and tree species, including ferns, shrubs and citrus plants, sprout from the ground here.
Naples by Night
Naples is a lively city and has a nightlife to match – the city’s piazzas quickly fill with revellers once it gets dark. For Neapolitan partygoers, the beach bars and clubs that line the coast are the go-to spot for late-night fun during summer. Most of the busiest and best clubs are found west of Naples along the coast near Bacoli.
