Getting Around

Navigating Naples is part of the adventure. The city's public transport system, including buses, trams, and the metro, is an efficient way to get around. For more scenic routes, the funicular railways offer stunning views. Taxis are widely available, though walking remains one of the best ways to explore the city's hidden alleys and discover its local charms.

When To Go

Spring and Autumn can be the best times to go to the city of Naples. The weather isn't too hot, you probably won't find as many tourists, and everywhere should be open. The summer however, can get swelteringly hot, making the city a little unbearable. This is why many Neapolitans close up for the month of August and head to the beach. Between June and September can be the best time to visit the holiday style towns and villages along this part of the Italian coast.
