You're Going to Love Naples

Built around a wide, gracefully curved bay and towered over by Mount Vesuvius, Naples is a stunning place by anyone's measure. Italy's third largest city is a work of beauty, a cultural gem and a gastronomic destination like no other.

If you've ever wondered what authentic pizza tastes like, a visit to Naples allows you to go straight to the source, and pizzerias like 50 Kalò and Da Michele will redefine your idea of a real pizza. But if carbs aren't your thing, the seafood at restaurants like Trattoria Castel dell'Ovo is just as enticing.

But you can't spend your vacation eating, and in Naples, there's no need. You can tour the fantastic Museo di Capodimonte, catch an opera, take the train to the Roman ruins at Pompeii, or board the ferry to Capri. There are magical experiences awaiting everyone in Naples.

Naples tends to become extremely hot in the summer, so unless you are happy to wander around in temperatures approaching 100 degrees, spring or fall might be preferable. April is the ideal month to go, as it will be warm enough to hit the beach and crowds at Pompeii or the major palaces won't be too large.

Where to Eat in Naples

Great food is everywhere in Naples. It's one of the city's crowning glories, so explore as many restaurants as possible. Some of the very best include La Stanza del Gusto on the Via Costantinopoli and the seafood specialists at the Trattoria Castel dell'Ovo. Most visitors will also feel compelled to gorge on pizza during their stay, so go for elite restaurants like Pizzeria Starita to avoid even the slightest disappointment. Meals aren't expensive given the general quality on offer and shouldn't come to more than EUR30 even at high-end places. Solo pizzas can even be as little as EUR5, so the challenge is restraining yourself, not overspending.
