Naples, Italy

Is Naples still on you bucket list?

The city has an entirely different vibes

Reasons to visit Napoles

World famous pizza:

The city is the birthplace of pizza. Get the best perfect pizza with crispy crust, fresh burrata, tomato sauce, and a splatter of olive oil.

Historic impressions:

Naples is the largest historic city of Italy that was originally founded by the ancient Greeks. The city itself is listed as UNESCO World Heritage.

Discover many architecturally stunning sights and lively piazzas.

Castel Nuovo: medieval castle


Deceiving characteristics of culture are the graffiti that painted the town including the railways and every bit corner of an alley.

Naples on vibrant clothesline:

From an Italian point of view, laundry should be washed at high temperature and hung outside to air and dry. Clotheslines have become a symbol of old cities like Naples. Maybe a sign of good housekeeping.

The colorful garlands crisscross the alleys.

Naples is only a boat away to nearby islands of Capri and Ischia, town of Sorrento, and the Amalfi Coast

Naples is located just a short distance to the ancient ruins of Pompeii, which was covered in volcanic ash after Mount Vesuvius erupted in the year 79.

My recommendation: purchase the Campania ArteCard:

You will get free access to the first three sites of your choice including Pompei. You can use the card for three days after activation, and use the card travelling on public transportation Consorzio UNICOCAMPANIA of the city of Naples. Just a note, if you buy it online, you still have to get your booking validated at the Campania information center, which is located at the main lobby by the Mango store. The information center opens at 9 am. You can also purchase the card at museums and archeological parks.

Unico Artecard – 3 day tourist pass for Naples, Pompeii etc, including public transport

Aimed squarely at the visitor to Naples this pass combines public transport in Naples for 3 days, (including the Naples airport bus) plus entry to two attractions from a long list that includes the National Archaeological Museum in Naples, Pompeii and Herculaneum.
