Sightseeing Tours In The City Of Naples

Including Hop On, Hop Off Open Top Sightseeing Buses

Sightseeing Bus Naples City Centre

The City Of Naples for the purpose of sightseeing is quite a compact area. Once in the city centre, if you really enjoy walking then you could walk everywhere. For most people though a little transport is desirable at some time, even if just a short bus journey. No visit to Naples would be complete without visiting San Martino, a large hill overlooking the city centre for views and culture and sights and the funicular railway up the hill is an attraction in itself.

We have a dedicated page identifying the major sights in Naples. There is no single blockbuster mega attraction, that is Pompeii just outside Naples. In many ways the sum of the parts of a visit to Naples is more satisfying than any single attraction.

Like nearly every town and city worldwide that attracts visitors Naples has its own hop on, hop off sightseeing bus service that consists of three interconnected routes that cover all the major sights and more. These offer a painless and stress free way to get around the city and one lap around the main city route also provides a good orientation.

The alternative is a concentrated two hour small group orientation tour covering all the main sights and giving you access to a knowledgeable guide. The tour is finished mid-morning and the information gained will enable you to explore independently for the rest of the day in a much more informed and productive way.

The Naples Open Top Hop On Hop Off Sightseeing Bus

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.
