Home to a city center that is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and filled with palaces and castles and all manner of majestic buildings, the third largest city in Italy, Naples, is a truly magnificent place to be. The site of the city is among the oldest continuously inhabited places in the world, having been settled by Bronze Age-era Greeks sometime in the second millennium BC, and throughout its history it has exchanged hands, with such diverse leadership as the Greeks, the Romans, and eventually forming the Kingdom of Naples. Travel to this many-layered city in 2015 and explore its best sights with our tours and activities.
Start with a Naples Hop On Hop Off Tour to explore the best sights and attractions in the city. Choose from three lines that branch out to different sets of landmarks. See Stazione Zoologica, where a wide variety of marine life awaits. Go to Orto Botanico, the oldest academic botanical garden in the world that has not moved from its original location, and admire 22,000 square meters of trees, ferns, aquatic plants, and many more, all while surrounded by beautiful architecture made by the same designer behind some of the best monuments in Padua. Admire these sights and more from atop your open top double decker tour bus, or disembark to get a closer look.
Ride a classic Fiat 600 car from the 50s and 60s and drive in style in a tour of the Amalfi coast. This UNESCO World Heritage Site runs through picturesque towns like Sorrento and Amalfi. You’ll get to see palaces, old villas, Mediterranean cliffs and cobblestone streets as you travel through this route. You’ll also get to try some authentic limoncello, one of the most popular liqueurs in the country. You can also try a Vespa tour for a different perspective on an equally classic vehicle, weaving through narrow streets that a larger car couldn’t pass through.
