Where to stay in Naples

Naples Hotels

Pizza lovers rejoice, and prepare your taste buds for a slice of the best food and drink Italy can offer, in the ancient city of Naples. Founded in 470 BC, the UNESCO World Heritage listed historical center is Europe's largest, and it retains influences from its Greek and Roman past. Naples also benefits from a spectacular setting, with the snow-capped dome of the snoozing Mount Vesuvius over to the East, and the brooding Campi Flegrei volcano to the West. Like the Neapolitan ice cream it lends its name to, Naples is a layered city – with a flavor for everyone.

Things to see

For a great introduction to Naples, start at Piazza del Plebiscito. The open square is perfect for relaxing with a morning cappuccino, or sampling an ice cream cone from a wooden gelato wagon. Wander from the columned San Francesco di Paola church down to the ocean for sweeping views of the city, harbor, and mountains. If the sight of Mount Vesuvius looming in the distance captures your imagination, then leave the city behind and hike to the top, where you can look directly into its cavernous crater. On your way down, visit the World Heritage Site of Pompeii - which was famously destroyed by the volcano's wrath in 79 AD. Tour the museum, and see poignant plaster casts of the bodies of people unable to escape the heat and ash, frozen in time. Roman artifacts from the site are also on display at Naples' National Archaeological Museum, which is just a 5-minute walk from Naples Cathedral. If you're in the city during a religious feast day, you'll notice a lot of activity here. 'The Blood Miracle' ritual takes place 3 times a year, with lavish processions culminating in a passionate ceremony at the Cathedral - during which a vial of Saint Januarius's solidified blood apparently transforms into liquid.

Hotels in Naples

Whether you want to sample Southern Italy's finest service, or are visiting on a tight budget, Naples hotels cover the whole spectrum. Chink wine glasses on a balcony, overlooking the impossibly blue Mediterranean, before heading to your 5-star hotel room, where you can swim into a sea of soft pillows. If sharing a friendly beer in a social hostel is more your style, Naples has you covered, and you can enjoy WiFi access, and a comfortable bed, without denting your wallet. Mid-range hotels provide all the basics, along with air-conditioned rooms and huge flat-screen televisions – perfect after a long day exploring.

Where to stay

Stay in the historical center to sink your teeth into the city's main sights and restaurants. If you think margarita is a boring pizza choice, just take a seat at one of the area's restaurants to have your opinion shattered. Nothing beats the simple taste of browned mozzarella, plump cherry tomatoes, and a drizzling of freshly pressed olive oil - especially when tasted in the birthplace of pizza. Don't forget to wash it down with a shot of Naples' own sour Limoncello liquor. Hotels located around Central Station are generally cheaper than the center, or you could choose to stay outside the city, in the pretty new town of Pompei.

How to get to Naples

Naples Airport serves the city and offers limited trans-Atlantic flights, alongside a comprehensive selection of European routes. A cheap bus service links the terminal to the city center. If you're already in Italy, Napoli Centrale train station is well connected, and long distance bus services are readily available to help you hop between cities. If you've rented a car, you can drive north to Rome, along the A1, in around 2 hours.
