How to Spend 1 Day in Naples
A destination for its signature pizza, Naples has more to offer beyond its world famous restaurants. Explore the city’s underground tunnels, wander the galleries of the Archaeological Museum, and cruise the city streets on the back of a Vespa. Here are a few ways to spend 24 hours in Naples.
Morning: Welcome to Naples
Get an introduction to Naples on a comprehensive tour. Go for a ride on the hop-on hop-off bus with 30 different stops on three routes, including top landmarks such as Capodimonte Museum and Piazza Municipio. To explore on foot, opt for a walking tour that includes historic sights such as Naples Royal Palace and Saint Gennaro church. For a speedy overview of the city, book a Segway tour and zip past San Carlo Theater, Piazza del Plebiscito, and other attractions. To see the hidden world beneath the city streets, take an underground tour that explores tunnels and caves.
Afternoon: Neapolitan Flavors
Taste the renowned cuisine of Naples on a food-focused tour. Some tours combine street food and sightseeing, including stops at hidden eateries, while others might stop at a market. No trip to Naples is complete without eating the city’s signature pizza. To learn how to make the pizza—in addition to eating it hot from the oven—sign up for a pizza-making course with a pizzaiolo (pizza maker), which includes hands-on experience kneading the dough. Round out the afternoon with a tour of the Archaeological Museum of Naples to see a variety of Roman and Greek art.
Night: Naples by Vespa or Fiat 500
Discover Naples by night on a tour that highlights the city's beauty. Cover ground quickly on a private Vespa sightseeing tour. Let your guide do the driving, while you admire views of city landmarks such as Castel dell’Ovo from the back of a scooter. This type of comprehensive tour is also available in an iconic vintage car, a Fiat 500. Learn about the history and architecture of landmarks throughout Naples as you cruise the city. Another option to see the city lights of Naples includes a bus tour and pizza dinner at one of the city’s famous pizzerias.
