Located on Italy’s east coast, overlooking the Bay of Naples and the Tyrrhenian Sea beyond, the city of Naples is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Italy. Many planning a trip to Naples do so to enjoy some rest and relaxation. The region is quiet and the atmosphere calm, something that is not always true of Italy as a whole.
Naples’ historic past is also a popular draw with tourists. In addition to the likes of the Palazzo Reale (Royal Palace), Castel Nuovo (New Castle), the Villa La Foridana, and Naples Cathedral – all historic city attractions – visitors come in droves to visit Pompeii and Herculaneum. These two Roman towns were wiped out by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD79. So sudden and cataclysmic was the volcanic eruption, many of the towns’ buildings were preserved until being rediscovered in the 1700’s. Mount Vesuvius itself is popular with tourists, who scale the side of the active volcano to witness the crater within.
A Naples trip plan should not be limited to Naples itself, especially considering the surrounding region features some of Italy’s most spectacular scenery.
The Amalfi Coast offers a series of picturesque beaches and an exquisite backdrop against which to enjoy a stroll, hike, cycle ride, or even a car trip. The distinctive architecture, coastal views and abundance of greenery make even an hour on the coast feel well worthwhile.
Located across the Gulf of Naples upon the Sorrentine Peninsula is Sorrento, a small town popular for its markets, cafés and restaurants. Plenty of tourists walk Sorrento’s compact streets in search of authentic souvenirs or simply to enjoy its laidback pace of life. For a truly remarkable atmosphere, visitors may want to board a boat and hop on over to the island of Capri. Here a veritable treasure trove of relaxing delights lays in wait. Enjoy a charming al fresco twilight dinner, walk the island’s scenic coastal paths, or visit the Blue Grotto, a cave system which features some of the bluest waters to be seen and accessible only by boat.
Back on the mainland, visitors looking for a bit of fun and excitement can enjoy swimming, diving and snorkeling in the Gulf of Naples, or ascend one of the region’s many hills and mountains on a funicular railway.
Of course, this is Italy so dining is heartily recommended! As well as traditional Italian dishes, Naples’ location close to the coast means the seafood is fresh and delicious.
