A gastronomic delight - tantalise those taste buds!
Vibrant and exciting, but also a little rough round the edges – it’s a city like no other. For history, culture, archaeology and pizza (of course!), you can’t go far wrong.
The grand San Carlo is the oldest functioning opera house in Europe and promises a magical experience for any opera enthusiast in Naples. See world-class opera, ballet and contemporary symphony here throughout the year. The opera season runs from January to December, but breaks during the summer. If you’re not around in time for a show, you can still pay a visit to admire the building's beauty which has seen some of the world’s greatest operas debut here including, La Donna del Lago, Lucia di Lammermoor and Luisa Mille.
Naples is home of the pizza, so you will never be far from a pizzeria baking a slice of the city’s finest. How long before you give in to temptation? Dive into a pizzeria and sample one of 3 authentic Neapolitan pizzas: Napolitana Marinara, Napolitana Margherita or Napolitana Margherita DOC. Yum!
Learn all about the city’s history at the museum of archaeology. Give yourself plenty of time to see it all, there are 4 floors of galleries! The highlights include the Greek and Roman sculptures of Toro Farnese (Farnese Bull) and Ercole (Hercules) and the exquisite collection of mosaics from nearby Pompeii.
