Sightseeing in Naples

The City of Naples is quite a compact area for the purpose of sightseeing . 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 it is 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, 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, as Pompeii is 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.

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, one going westward along the coast, the other focusing on the historic centre of Naples.

There are 11 stops on the Art route (around the historic city centre centre of Naples), 12 stops on the Views of the Gulf route (along the coast).

Both routes are connected to Piazza Municipio and take approximately 75 minutes to complete a full circuit.
