Naples is the third-largest city in Italy and a vibrant urban sprawl with lots to explore. There are ancient ruins, old churches and chapels, art galleries and museums and shopping. Then there’s the food that is an impressive part of your Italy vacation, with Naples chefs claiming their dishes are the most delicious in the country.
Did you know pizza was invented in Naples? Locals will tell you that in 1889 Italian King Umberto I and Queen Margherita were in Naples and asked baker Raffaele Esposito to make them a pizza. He added fresh tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and fresh basil and so the pizza as we know it today was created.
Naples is also famous for its natural attractions such as Posillipo, the Phlegraean Fields, Nisida and Vesuvius. Mount Vesuvius is still active and is known for ruining the village of Pompeii a long time ago.
The best time to visit Naples is from April to May and September to October and then you can expect fabulous weather and not too many crowds. During these months, room rates are also reasonable. In the summer it gets quite hot and busy with tourists, particularly in August. If you can handle some rain, December is a quiet time to visit too.
