Explore the Heart of Italy
Imagine the bustling streets, the scents of oregano and pizza drifting in the air, the colourful language of the locals, laundry strung out in the street, a motorcycle sounding its horn under a window: Naples offers an instant change of scene. Quite simply one of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean, with many natural, cultural and culinary treasures to enjoy. A cocktail of activities which will delight both families and nature lovers, as well as visitors with a passion for art and culture.
Make the Most of Naples and Its Surroundings
Architecture and history from many eras
What makes Naples so appealing to travellers looking for cultural exploration is the range of influences on the capital of Campania's architectural heritage. From Greco-Roman ruins to baroque palaces, there's something for everyone.
Those who like to lose themselves in the city should take a stroll through its streets and discover over 400 churches! Wander along the Spaccanapoli, the main and most lively street in the historic centre of Naples . Take the Via Toledo, lined with historic buildings, palaces, churches and cafés. Then end your walk in the high-ceilinged, spacious Galleria Umberto I, a sumptuous four-armed shopping arcade.
For lovers of cultural tourism, the National Archaeology Museum is not to be missed. One of the most important Greek and Roman antiquity museums in the world, this gallery has many exhibits from Pompeii.
Travel through time: Pompeii and Herculaneum
Less than 45 minutes from Naples, two must-see sites await: Pompeii and Herculaneum, cities engulfed by the eruption of Vesuvius almost 2000 years ago. Pompeii, a sophisticated city buried in 79 A.D. under a thick layer of ash, is almost perfectly preserved. It offers a grand and moving vision of how a Roman city in the Imperial period would have looked. Visiting Herculaneum will also take you back 2000 years, but with one special feature: the city was buried under a layer of lava and mud, providing even better conservation and appreciation of the utensils and furniture of the time.
Book a flight from Nice to Naples and succumb to the charms of the Amalfi Coast!
From Naples, take a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and escape to explore four of the most beautiful villages in southern Italy: Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi and Ravello.
On a cliff edge, the village of Sorrento offers a charming, buzzing port and a superb panorama of the sea and surrounding landscape, while sipping a ristretto coffee on a café terrace. The alleyways of Positano are filled with charming, colourful boutiques. Don't forget to stop by the Santa Maria Assunta church. See the gleaming white Mediterranean buildings of Amalfi, before finishing in Ravello, to admire the exquisite coastal landscape from a different angle.
Flirt with the skies
The offer in the surroundings of Naples will delight sports lovers. Challenge your hiking legs and along the "Path of the Gods", taking ancient shepherds' paths overlooking Positano. Then climb to the top of Vesuvius, the only active volcano in continental Europe, towering over Naples at 1281 metres.
Enjoy the Dolce Vita
Before you leave, take the time just to sit on the terrace of a restaurant in Naples for some people-watching, while you wait for your Margherita: the famous pizza in the colours of the Italian flag!
