Where to Find the Best Views in Naples

Where to Find the Best Views in Naples

Naples has lived in the shadow of an active volcano for millennia, and you won’t find many soaring domes or observation decks defying the mountain’s geological rumblings. To get a bird’s-eye view in this coastal city, head to one of its historic castles or hillside scenic overlooks.  

 

Castel Sant’Elmo

Originally a church, this fortress was transformed into a castle in the 14th century. The site’s hilltop perch offers one of the city’s most dazzling views, so be sure to bring your camera to capture the panorama across the city and the bay to the islands on the horizon.

 

Castel dell’Ovo

Set on a rocky outcrop just off Naples’ seaside promenade, this Norman castle offers views of the city from below from its crenellated ramparts. After you take in the view, dine at one of the many charming seafood restaurants clustered around its walls. 

 

Castel Nuovo (Maschio Angioino)

This 13th-century castle is located adjacent Naples’ historic center and is often a stop on guided tours of the city. Head to the rooftop to take in views of the bay on one side and the city and base of Mt. Vesuvius on the other.

 

Belvedere di San Martino

Every evening, romantics and photographers flock to this scenic overlook near the Charterhouse of San Martino to catch sunset views of the city and the bay. If you’re looking for a spot to steal a kiss over Bella Napoli, this is the place to be.

 

Belvedere di Sant’Antonio a Posillipo

Hop on the funicular from the Mergellina neighborhood, on the water’s edge, and take a scenic ride up to the top of Naples’ Posillipo Hill where a panoramic overlook offers an unobstructed view across the bay to Mt. Vesuvius, on the opposite shore.

Mount Vesuvius

For the most spectacular views in Campania, there’s no better spot than the smouldering crater at the top of Mount Vesuvius. Gaze into the distance, and you’ll see the whole of Naples, as well as the island of Ischia to the north and Sorrento and Capri to the south.
