Things to Do in Naples This Winter
Though temperatures drop in Naples in the winter months, the climate of this southern Italian city is still usually mild enough to enjoy the outdoors. You will, however, get wet and windy days, so make sure you have a contingency plan in case it rains. Here are a few outdoor and indoor suggestions for exploring Naples in winter.
- Have the ancient Roman ruins virtually to yourself during a tour of Pompeii.
- See the city in comfort (even on a rare blustery day) by opting for a hop-on-hop-off bus tour.
- If clouds begin to gather, head underneath the city streets to discover Naples Underground.
- Enjoy touring the ruins of Herculaneum in the quiet low season.
- Fill a winter day with ancient art and architecture at the Naples Archaeological Museum.
- Take a quiet drive along the Amalfi Coast, its towns picturesquely shuttered for the winter, and stop for a stroll in Sorrento, which is lively all year round.
- Warm the heart with a home cooking class and a traditional Neapolitan meal.
- Experience the lavish lifestyle of Italy’s aristocracy with a tour of the Caserta Royal Palace.
- Shop for holiday gifts at the La Reggia Designer Outlet.
- Peruse the masterpieces in the Capodimonte Museum, one of Italy’s most important repositories of paintings and sculpture.
