Where to stay in Naples

Naples' lodging options include everything from turn-of-the-century historical mansions to hip boutique hotels. For a five-star experience in the heart of town, book a centrally located luxury hotel. Less expensive but just as comfortable, traditional inns just outside the central area offer peaceful comfort, private parking, and private outdoor space ideal for quiet dinners and small parties. If you are looking for a less urban experience and prefer to stay in a leafy neighborhood, consider the city's residential suburbs.

  • Free Church entrance. The complex can be visited only by guided tour, which departs every 40 min. from 10:30 to €5 (reduced under 25 and groups; free under 6, tour guides and press corps). Can also book visits in the evening. The Church of Santa Maria delle Anime del Purgatorio ad Arco, also known as the Church "de ' cape ' and death", founded in ' 600, guards the winged skull of Dionisio Lazzari, along with masterpieces by Luca Giordano, Andrea Vaccaro and Massimo Stanzione. In the ancient and magnificent underground hypogeum continues the cult of the anonymous human remains considered real brokers for invocations, prayers and intercessions. A small museum is also housed in the elegant vestry.

  • Beautiful! Mystical atmosphere pervades throughout. Great location within walking distance of underground Naples, San Lorenzo and San Gregorio Armeno. Not to be missed!
