Things to see and do in Naples
Naples is without a doubt one of Europe's top short-break destinations, offering visitors a rich mix of highlights.
Simply walking around the Unesco World Heritage Site-listed historic centre is a highlight in itself, with religious sites such as the Baroque New Jesuit Church and the Santa Chiara Monastery within walking distance of the stunning piazzas of Gesu and Santo Domenico Maggiore, where locals and tourists alike gather to swap stories and relax.
Other historical highlights include the tunnels running underneath the old town, which were used as bomb shelters during the 1940s, and which offer visitors a glimpse of the city's Roman past.
In addition, the Piazza del Plebiscito, the Royal Palace and the varied art galleries and museums all vie for tourists' attentions.
Away from the churches and squares, the Bay of Naples is also home to a number of ancient castles and fortresses, though the true highlights are a trip to nearby Pompeii or to Mount Vesuvius, which destroyed the Roman settlement centuries ago.
At night, the frantic pace of Naples keeps on going, with hundreds of bars and restaurants boasting Italy's 'best pizza' or gelato, most of which are located between the best hotels in the historic centre.
