To help you read and visit Naples, you should discover 5 amazing things to do in Naples:
Visit the historic sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum
Among the 5 best amazing things to do in Naples you can find the historic sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum which are two ancient Roman cities which are not far from the center of Naples and very easily accessible by public transport or by car. Pompeii and Herculaneum were destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius, the volcano which is located very close to Naples, in 79 AD. Both places are among the most visited places in Naples thanks to the interesting things you can find there.
In Pompeii you can explore the surroundings and discover incredible sites such as the amphitheater which was completed in 80 BC, the Temple of Apollo where objects dating from 575 BC were found and these infamous and heartbreaking corpses preserved in stone. In Herculaneum, although it is smaller than Pompeii, you will also find many things to see such as the thermal baths, the house of Neptune and Amphitrite with its ancient mosaics and the MAV which is an interesting virtual museum.

Enjoy the delicious & traditional Naples Cuisine
Among the 5 best amazing things to do in Naples, you need to make sure that you try the wonderful cuisine of the region. Some of the best and most popular dishes include the parmigiana di melenzane which is made with fried eggplant, tomato sauce, mozzarella, parmesan and basil. Furthermore, no one can leave Naples without having a pizza at Antica Pizzeria Port’Alba, which would be the first pizzeria in the world (in fact, it opened in 1738).
If you can ask any city dweller to eat Sunday lunch on average, the chances are 99% of saying “ragù”, which is the tomato sauce used on pasta cooked for hours and which includes pieces of meat and sausages. But in Naples, they also have many traditional sweets such as babà (which is a cupcake soaked in the room) and, of course, sfogliatella, the delicious puff pastry filled with ricotta cream and topped with powdered sugar.
Walk through the historic center
If you don’t know, the historic center of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and nothing you can do in the city will beat its walks through its narrow streets and meet beautiful places such as the Maschio Angioino castle, Piazza Plebiscito (the largest square in Naples), Castel Dell’Ovo and the catacombs which are located very close to the Basilica of San Gennaro, which was built in the 5th century.
Discover the masterpieces of the city’s museums
Art lovers will not be disappointed with Naples as there are incredible museums filled with masterpieces. One of them is the National Museum of Capodimonte which houses an impressive collection of Renaissance, Baroque and modern paintings as well as classical sculptures.
