Naples is the capital of the Italian region Campania and the third-largest municipality in Italy after Rome and Milan. Museum-lovers will appreciate Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli and The Neapolis Buried. Your inner history buff will appreciate Pompeii Archaeological Park and Galleria Borbonica. Venture out of the city with trips to Reggia di Caserta (in Caserta) and Ravello (Duomo di Ravello, Villa Rufolo, &more). There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Parco Acheologico di Ercolano, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cloister of Santa Chiara, get engrossed in the history at Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte, and indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink.

To see more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, read our Naples tour itinerary builder tool.
