Naples holidays are considered one of the best-kept secrets in travel. Visit this thriving city and you will have the pick of the must-do activities and must-visit locations from the moment you arrive. The city of Naples itself entices with a dazzling array of magnificent palaces, cathedrals and museums that provide a glimpse into its glorious past, while it is considered home to the finest renditions of Italy's exceptional cuisine. Better still, a holiday in Naples means you are only a stone's throw from the spellbinding island of Capri or a short drive from the magnificent Amalfi Coast. No wonder then, Naples is the second most visited port in the world for cruise ships.
The towering Mount Vesuvius is a short drive away from Naples and exploring the twin ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum, where the disaster caused by molten lava is extraordinarily well preserved, can be a humbling experience. If art and culture feature on your holiday itinerary, the MADRE and National Archaeological museums are bound to inspire and educate.
A must-visit for any 'foodie', Naples lays claim to have invented the pizza, so no Naples holiday is complete without digging into a freshly-baked traditional margherita and marinara pizza, while the delicious street food makes snacking your way around the city a tempting daily treat. Pottering around its 3km long beautiful promenade from Mergellina to Santa Lucia or joining the communal nightlife at Piazza Bellini at 10pm, Naples' vivaciousness is simply irresistible. Naples' seaside setting in close proximity Sorrento, the Neapolitan Riviera and the Amalfi Coast means sun seekers are simply spoilt for choice on this dream holiday. Combined with the city's' wealth of history and its world-class gastronomy, holidays in Naples are guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience.
