The City Of Naples Sightseeing

The cruise port in Naples is in the Mollo Beverello district, right in the heart of the City Of Naples. You can just walk directly off the ship and in 10 minutes be in the heart of the city of Naples with most of Naples main sightseeing attractions within walking distance or a short bus ride.

Also within about 10 minutes walk of your ship is the main terminus of the Naples open top, hop on, hop off sightseeing bus that has three main routes covering all the attractions of Naples, though not outside the city to Pompeii.

If you want to cover Naples, are independently minded and want to make best use of the little time you have then a 2 hour small group early morning orientation tour of the City of Naples covers all the main sights and access to a local guide so by mid-morning you can strike out in an informed manner to make best use of your remaining time.

Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius & Herculaneum Independently

It is pretty straight forward to visit either Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius & Herculaneum under your own steam using the Circumvesuviana Trains. The Circumvesuviana Train leaves from Naples Porta Nolana Station a couple of miles from the cruise/ferry port so you will need a local bus or taxi for this transfer.

The trains are mass transit trains that run about every 30 minutes to Pompeii and Ercolano Scavi station for Herculaneum. Note these trains are not really advised by the old and frail. They are always crowded to the seams and there is a good chance you won't get a seat for part of the journey. If you are old there is probably more likelihood a young person will rush to take a seat in front of you than give a seat up to you.

It should be said that this is not Switzerland so do give yourself good contingency to get back to the ship.

Note for both trains and admissions credit cards are not taken so you need cash (in Euro's).

Independently you will probably have time on a cruise excursion to visit one of these. Pompeii is clearly the headline act and is a vast site and is further away from Naples than Herculaneum. A lot of people prefer Herculaneum as it is much more compact than Pompeii and the buildings are better preserved. As an independent visitor there isn't much information to make sense of what you are seeing, at minimum you need to invest in the hire of an audio guide.
