Hop-on routes in Naples

Naples, like most other towns and cities worldwide that attract significant numbers of visitors, has an open top city sightseeing bus operating on a hop-on hop-off basis. Buy a ticket that lasts 24-hours and you can hop-on and hop-off the buses at your leisure within that period.

The first thing to underline perhaps is that the sightseeing bus only covers the centre of Naples, it doesn't go out to Pompeii or Mount Vesuvius.

There are 2 routes and you can use your ticket on both. There is an interchange for both routes at Piazza Municipio, a short walk from the ferry/cruise terminal. From this central terminus the buses radiate out.

There are 11 stops on the Art route - Line A (around the historic city centre centre of Naples) and 12 stops on the Views of the Gulf route (along the coast). Map of the routes.

Both routes are connected to Piazza Municipio and take approximately 75 minutes to complete a full circuit. You can download a free app and view an interactive map and track the position of the buses in real time. The buses have free Wi-Fi and have disabled access.
