  • The infectious passion and energy of Naples will draw you in the moment you arrive. With castles, royal palaces, gorgeous churches and some of Italy's top museums, there's plenty to keep you on your toes. Art, history and culture are three of the top reasons to visit Naples.

    Many travelers don't know that two of Italy's best art collections are located in Naples at the National Archaeological Museum and the fine Capodimonte Museum. If you love art and history, you'll want to put both museums at the top of your list!

    The vibrant street life will make exploring the city's ancient streets one of your favorite pastimes. The centro storico, or historic center, of Naples is where you'll find the impressive Duomo dedicated to San Gennaro, where you can trace the city's religious history from ancient to modern times. Other top churches to visit include the Gothic beauty Santa Chiara, the Church of San Domenico Maggiore and the peaceful Charterhouse of San Martino high above the city.

    Travelers of all ages will enjoy exploring the castles and historic palaces of Naples, the former haunts of the city's wealthy kings. Right in the historic center you can visit the Palazzo Reale for a taste of the luxurious royal lifestyle and visit the Castel Nuovo dating from the 13th century.
