Castel Nuovo is one of Naples most impressive sights, it is where various kings and other dignitaries used to reside. This beautiful castle is the symbol of the city and a museum with a vast collection of art, holy relics and frescoes. It’s a definite must-see.
Mount Vesuvius may not be the largest volcano around, but it is the most famous in Italy. The billowing smoke that escapes is a sign it is still active. If you would you like to visit it, then you can reach Vesuvius by train. And walk the last metres accompanied by a guide. Highly recommended for the adventurous among us.
In 79 AD, Vesuvius erupted and buried Pompeii under a layer of lava and ash. This preserved the Roman city so well that it is almost difficult to believe the buildings and temples stem from Antiquity. Curious what it’s all about? Talk a walk during your citytrip in Napels and you can see the archaeological excavations of Pompeii.
Just like every self-respecting city, Naples also has an impressive cathedral: the white Santa Maria Assunta. You can find this church on the Via Duomo, in the city centre. With its remarkable ceiling decorations, exceptional details on the arches and a wonderful floor, the Duomo is one of the sights in Naples you simply have to see.
The Real Teatro di San Carlo, to give this world-famous opera theatre its full name, is enormous. With its six floors, it can accommodate no less than 3,000 visitors. Do you like regal splendour? Then a visit to this sight is definitely worth your while: the interior is an abundance of gold and ruby red, making you feel like you are in a palace.
