Things To Do In Naples

As one of the oldest and largest cities in Italy, Naples has no shortage of incredible things to do and fascinating relics to see. From explorations of the ancient sites around Mount Vesuvius to a peruse through the city's contemporary art scene, it's a place that can keep you occupied for days if you know where to look. A great place to start is the City Sightseeing Naples bus tour. This hop-on hop-off sightseeing service let's you travel around all the key landmarks for up 24 hours. The guides are helpful and the tour consists of three routes that run all the way from the Capodimonte Museum to Parco Virgiliano. Certainly if you're visiting as part of a shore excursion, it's one of the best ways to see Naples.

Set out on foot at any point in the historic centre and you're sure to quickly encounter something exciting. Chiesa di San Gregorio Armeno is an 8th century church that sits right at the heart of the city. It is bordered by a lively street of the same name which is typically lined with a diverse range of artisan stalls, both these and the church's brilliant golden interior are two things well worth experiencing.

One of the best parts about taking a walk in Naples is that the sightseeing discoveries aren't just limited to the overground. Take a minute's stroll west of Piazza del Plebiscito along Via Gennaro Serra until you reach the entrance to the Bourbon Tunnel (bottom of Vico del Grottone side street). This sprawling subterranean passageway was constructed by King Ferdinand II of Bourbon as a means to connect the Royal Palace of Naples to his troop barracks. During World War II it again saw service as a bomb shelter, and gathered during this time a fascinating array of artefacts from vintage cars to statues. There's three guided tours available: a standard 75 minute exploration, an 'adventure' tour which includes a raft ride through the underground aqueducts, and a 'speleo' tour, where you don helmets and harnesses for a descent into the deepest chambers.

The Museo Cappella Sansevero has consistently proved to be one Naples' most popular visitor attractions. This late 16th century chapel is renowned for the numerous works of art contained within, namely, the supine marble statue of 'Christ Veiled under a Shroud'. The basement of the chapel also houses two anatomical models from around 1760 that were created through what is considered to be one of the earliest examples of a 'plastination-like' technique.
