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 3 routes and you can use your ticket on all three. There is an interchange for all three routes at Piazza Municipio, a short walk from the ferry/cruise terminal.


From this central terminus the buses radiate out, one going westward along the coast, the other climbing up to San Martino to the north-west of the city centre before looping back down via the edge of the historic centre and the last essentially doing a circuit around the historic centre.


There are 11 stops on the Art route (around the historic city centre centre of Naples), 12 stops on the Naples Bay route (along the coast) and 9 stops on the San Marino route up on to the hill above the historic centre.


All 3 routes are connected and take Piazza Municipo and take approximately 75 minutes to complete a full circuit. Note the San Marino route only runs at weekends November to March.

Start times and frequencies

First buses start around 9.30am to 10am, the last between 4pm and 5pm.

As you might expect, frequencies are seasonable. The broad winter season is November to March, the summer season April to October.

The art route and Naples Bay route run broadly every hour, the San Marino route every 2 hours.

Language commentary

There is a recorded commentary available on board through headsets in English, Italian, French, German, Spanish, Japanese and Russian.

Major sights visited

All of the major sights in the City of Naples are visited including the Cathedral, National Archaeological Museum, Spaccanapoli area, The Duomo, Ovo and New Castles and the Museum and Monastery of San Martino.
