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.

  • Huge, and nice museum with a well furnished interior, and a wide selection of items to look at. Good prices, but quite a line outside the ticket office. The staff were very polite and showed us the way. Most of the museum is beautiful, but there are some empty rooms which are a waste of space. Also there is only a self service bar, and they should really make a normal bar or pasticerria in the museum. A great Egyptian section as well. Highly recommend.
  • Great museum! I suggest if you go to Pompeii to visit this place aswell if you go to Naples. All of the artifacts from Pompeii is here. The display is very impressive. Pack a lunch though because the only food options in the museum are vending machines. An early start is also recommended for entry as we waited in line (in the rain) for about 30min to get through the doors.
  • Some really lovely exhibits here though a bit of a seemingly random mix. Not enough staff so many areas closed each day so you can't be sure what you'll see which is a shame. Spectacular statues. Just sad it isn't better staffed
  • This is a beautiful museum with interesting historical pieces. The building is magnificent. Worth a visit!
  • This place is definitely a must visit if you are in Naples. Because it is gigantic (with one floor only dedicated to coins) I recommend you to plan your visit in a morning instead of an afternoon so you have enough time and energy to study and admire each of the artefacts.
