The Naples National Archaeological Museum, which has an extensive collection of artifacts from the Roman Empire and from the ruins in Pompeii, is highly recommended. Mount Vesuvius dominates the skyline to the East of the city and near to the bay are the pretty islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida, which are worth day trips.
