Don't Miss These Must-Do Activities in Naples
Stretching along the coastline to the foot of brooding Mt. Vesuvius, Naples is a mix of fascinating history, world-class art, and a feisty spirit.

Don’t forget to dip into Naples’ spirited food scene, centered on rowdy pizzerias and traditional trattorias. Naples is also a hub for day trips and excursions to Positano and the Amalfi Coast, Capri, and Sorrento, as well as to the archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum and Mt. Vesuvius.
