Cheap flights to Naples

Naples is loud and brash, but one thing it isn’t is boring. Great food, world famous archaeological sites, and arguably Italy’s most picturesque coastline ensure that there is never a dull moment in this busy town.  Pizza, ice cream, noisy vespas and towering volcanoes spring to mind when you mention Naples. And while this city doesn’t boast the elegance of rival destinations like Venice or Rome, it more than makes up for it in the culture stakes. Rome may have the Colosseum and the Pantheon, but Naples has Pompeii and Herculaneum; two Roman towns preserved forever by a volcanic eruption in 79 AD.

As you’d imagine, Naples’ museums are also fit to burst under the weight of antiquities on offer from these two marvellous archaeological gems. Oh, and the city’s old town is also a World Heritage Site, so be sure to give it a wonder. But with its mix of Arab, Spanish, French and Norman influences, it’s Naples’ cuisine that sets it head and shoulders of the competition. This is the home of pizza after all.

Port d'Alba opening onto Piazza Dante is Naples' atmospheric book trade quarter. Once bustling, now just a few sellers remain; ripe for discovery are stacked tomes and bundles of poignant vintage postcards.

April 2017
Naples marks 50 years since the passing of its most celebrated comic actor Totò (born Antonio De Curtis). Check the tourism office for related events and tours of the Prince of Laughter's working-class Rione Sanità district.

October 2016
As Christmas approaches Via San Gregorio Armeno increasingly fills with Neapolitan nativity scenes ("presepi") and onlookers. Pick up a figurine of a lamb and chortle at the quirky tableaux of celebs -Trump, Berlusconi and Bolt - rubbing shoulders.

July 2016
Naples' city beaches are hardly idyllic - along the lungomare at Mappatella between the concrete blocks is a patch of grey sand. Instead, head along Via Posillipo to Bagno Elena for a swim, a sun lounger and a granita (a semi-frozen drink).
