Arriving in Naples
When you book tickets to Naples you’ll enter a city whose history and culture are wonderfully intertwined. Explore ancient ruins, museums overflowing with valuable artifacts, and streets lined with beautiful architecture.
First Time in Naples
Your flights to Naples wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the ruins of Pompeii, an ancient city completely buried by a volcanic eruption in 79 A.D., and excavated centuries later. Ancient buildings with intact fresco paintings and even loaves of bread were fully preserved in a cast of ash, and can be viewed during your visit.
Try taking a few tours to get a feel for the city the first time you travel to Naples. Walking and Segway tours will take you past some architectural points of interest, or you can visit some of the many museums and galleries. For a taste of Italian culture, try a Naples Food Tour and sample delicious pizza, pastries and espresso.
Making the Most of Your Naples Holiday
Take advantage of cheap hotels in Naples during the off-season between November and March, when crowds thin but the climate is still mild. Flight deals to Naples are easiest to find in the fall.
