Where to Stay in Naples
Naples and its outskirts offer a fantastic range of mid-range accommodation. In central Naples locations, such as the UNESCO-listed old centre and the area around the main train station, the hotel options are many and varied. You may choose to sleep in converted Neapolitan mansion with period features or in a modern, design-conscious boutique hotel.
You’ll also be able to find good-value Naples accommodation in suburban neighbourhoods such as Fuorigrotta, which is home to Stadio San Paolo, Italy’s third-largest football stadium. Another district of Naples with a good selection of three-star hotels is Posillipo, an upmarket, wealthy and primarily residential area that overlooks the Gulf of Naples.
Explore Hidden Passages Beneath the Streets of Naples
Buried beneath the modern-day streets of Naples is an underground network of passageways. Descend beneath San Lorenzo Maggiore church to see an old Roman marketplace. Head up the hill toward the Palace of Capodimonte and you’ll come across the 1920s-built Basilica of Madre del Buon Consiglio. Hidden deep beneath this church are the Catacombs of San Gennaro, an underground burial site dating back to the 4th Century.
Join a tour of Naples Underground to find out about some more of the unexpected subterranean attractions, which include everything from Greek aqueducts to World War II shelters.
Visit Vesuvius and Pompeii from Naples
In AD 79, Mount Vesuvius violently erupted, laying ruin to the ancient city of Pompei. Nowadays, both Vesuvius and the old city of Pompeii are big tourist attractions, and both make good day trips from Naples. Take a shuttle up to the volcano, before hiking the last leg to its scenic summit. The views of Naples, Pompeii and the bay from the top are spectacular. For history enthusiasts, Pompeii is unmissable – rather than being destroyed by the eruption, it was merely buried, meaning its streets and houses are incredibly well-preserved.
