How to Spend 3 Days in Naples

How to Spend 3 Days in Naples

With three days in Naples, there’s plenty of time to explore the city’s historic sights and museums, head out of town on a trip into the country, to the coast, or to explore the ruins of nearby Pompei—and, of course, lots of chances to enjoy the city’s famous pizzas. Here are a few excellent ways to spend 3 days in and around Naples.

Day 1: History and Underground Tunnels

Get your bearings in Naples with an introductory tour: Climb aboard a double decker, hop-on hop-off bus, and explore the city at your own pace with stops at landmarks like the Museum of Capodimonte, the San Carlo Theater, and Piazza del Plebiscito. Another option for covering ground quickly is to take a Segway tour or get a bit of exercise on a guided bike tour.

Once you’re familiar with the city’s geography, see its flip side and learn about its history by heading underground. Guided tours take you through the tunnels that run under the city and were used as air raid shelters during World War II. Finish the day with an after-dark tour on a Vespa or Fiat 500 for several photo ops.

Day 2: The Signature Flavors of Naples

Experience the city’s culinary traditions with a food-focused walking tour that features locals’ favorite places to eat and drink. Opt for a tour that focuses on street food or one that includes stops at markets and off-the-beaten-path restaurants. Pizza aficionados can sign up for a Neapolitan pizza-making course with a professional pizzaiolo. Hands-on workshops include step-by-step instructions from everything from kneading the dough to pulling the pizza out of the oven—and the chance to taste the fruits of your labor. It’s also possible to get a taste of Naples with an after-dark street food tour or dinner with a Neapolitan chef.

Day 3: Discover the Amalfi Coast and Beyond

Naples offers easy access to a variety of day-trip destinations. History buffs can explore the archaeological ruins of Pompeii and visit Mt. Vesuvius. For a full day of historic sites, combine a trip with a visit to Herculaneum, another ancient town that was destroyed by volcanic activity. Food-focused travelers may want to sign up for a truffle-hunting day trip or combine a trip to Pompeii with wine tasting at vineyards on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius.

To spend the day near the water, opt for a cruise along the scenic Amalfi Coast that includes stops at several towns, including Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello. Alternatively, depart from Naples by boat and head to the island of Capri; some tours include a visit to the island’s famous Blue Grotto sea cave. Afterwards, you’ll make it back to the city in time for one last night out in Naples.
