With world-class art, architecture, fashion, gastronomy, wine, and coffee, Naples is a city of superlatives. It’s also a city of opposites, bright and chaotic at the same time.

Poverty, grime, and graffiti coexist with hundreds of churches containing great art, all within sight of Mount Vesuvius, which is still smouldering.

Though they are considered to have a fatalistic attitude toward life, never knowing when calamity would strike (as the residents of adjacent Pompeii discovered in 79AD), Neapolitans are enthusiastic about cuisine, family, and tradition. Naples is a sensory overload that should not be missed.

The most difficult aspect of visiting Naples is cramming everything in, but the Archeological Museum in the Via Toledo region is a must-see.
Within an 18th-century palace, the best arts and antiquities from Pompeii, as well as the Farnese collection of Greco-Roman artefacts, are shown.

In Naples, good food can be found anywhere, from traditional pizzerias where residents can get a pizzetta (slice) or a ripieno fritto (fried calzone pizza) to high-end restaurants serving Neapolitan nouvelle cuisine.
On the rich slopes of Vesuvius, succulent fruits and vegetables, as well as vines and olive trees for superb wines and oil, are grown.
Fresh fish and creamy mozzarella di bufala round out the menu.

Fresh, simply prepared seafood, such as pasta with clams, is served in many of the port’s fish restaurants. Excellent local wines such as aglianico, a full-bodied red, and falanghina, a fruity white, are commonly served with delightful fried food in enoteche (wine bars).
Throughout the year, sagre (food festivals) are celebrated in distant villages.

Where should you go in Naples?

  • The Teatro San Carlo, Europe’s oldest opera house, has hosted the world premieres of some of the world’s most famous operas.
    It is critical to purchase your tickets in advance.
  • The metro system is an underground art gallery in and of itself; check out the stations at Toledo, University, Dante, Garibaldi, and Materdei for noteworthy pieces by current artists.
  • The people’s park, Villa Communale, is located between the sea and lively Chiaia.
    It contains playgrounds, a roller-skating rink, and is home to the popular Festa di Piedigrotta singing and dance event in September.
  • A walk down the seafront between Chiaia and Mergellina is a nice way to unwind before dinner.
