Best Time To Visit: The shoulder seasons (March – June, and October – September) have the benefit of avoiding local holidaymakers. Summer months see the city filled with colourful festivals.
Key Cruising Areas: The Bay of Naples is filled with beautiful islands. Cruise out to the large island of Ischia to explore the coastline riddled with grottos, then step ashore to visit a vineyard and pick up a bottle of Biancolella to enjoy on the deck as you sail back to port.
Don’t Miss: The ruins of Pompei lie close to Naples and are well worth a visit. Alternatively, cruise to Ischia and visit the thermal park of Castiglione, where you can relax in warm waters then jump into a freezing plunge pool for an invigorating circulation boost! Afterward, why not treat your skin with a cold volcanic mud treatment.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: For a stunning evening, visit the roof garden restaurant at the Hotel Vesuvio. Try their famous Bucatini alla Caruso with a splendid backdrop over the Gulf of Naples.
