The city of Naples has much of the historic and charming atmosphere of the more popular Italian cities but without the huge crowds of tourists. It is an impressive and unassuming city with hundreds of holiday points of interest within easy reach and there are a lot of fun things to see and things to do in Naples while on vacation in the city.
Medieval castles, classical ruins, and cobble-stoned alleys are common sights in Naples. One of the top landmarks of the city is Castel Nuovo, also called Maschio Angioino, which is home to the first king of Naples.
If you love rediscovering the past and history of a place, go to Naples National Archaeological Museum which houses an extensive collection of historic objects and artifacts from the Roman Empire.
If you crave sightseeing, you will not run out of things to see and do because Naples is home to 488 monumental and historical churches. The most prominent is the Cathedral of Naples, home of the city’s patron saint and the main place of worship for the Neapolitan people.
After a jovial, sun kissed day of touring around the city, treat yourself to a pizza margherita and carafe of chianti. At night, you can visit Piazza Bellini or Piazza San Domenico Maggiore to explore the energetic nightlife scene of Naples.
Because the climate in Naples is Mediterranean, the city experiences warm, dry summers and cold, wet winters. The winter season runs from October to February, with average temperatures staying at 10°C (50°F), while the summer season runs from June to September, with an average high of 35°C (95°C).
No matter what time of years you visit, you’ll find that there are plenty of things to do in Naples. If you want to avoid the high hotel rates and thick crowds of tourists, you can plan your holiday in the city’s shoulder seasons of April to May and September to October.
Christmas, Easter, and the summer season are the most crowded times of the year in Naples. May is also a busy month because it is when the annual festival of Maggio dei Monumenti (May of the Monuments) is held.
