Piazza del Plebiscito, Naples

#21 of 651 in Things to do in Naples
Visit two of the city's most famous attractions--the Royal Palace and church of San Francesco di Paola--when you stroll through Piazza del Plebiscito. One of the largest squares in Naples, this spot is ideal for people-watching, taking in the grand architecture, and enjoying views of the harbor and mountains. Occasionally the square is used for open-air concerts; big names, such as Elton John and Bruce Springsteen, have performed here. Check online to see if any concerts coincide with your visit.

  • Too martial, perhaps because I've been in a hurry or because once there was an ongoing military manifestation, tribal rites with great fanfare. No poetry, though not bad in absolute terms

  • Big open space with a church on one side and a palace on the other. It was mostly empty on Sat Dec 23rd, 2017. The church has all three types of columns, ionic, doric & cortinthian, if you know the difference.
  • One of the best place in Naples. Full of history and legends! Must to go!
  • Dog 🐶 piss and poo 💩 everywhere, graffiti. Spoils an amazing piece of architecture. People who are doing the graffiti and allow their dogs to foul here should be ashamed. I was very disappointed.
  • Wonderful historical sites, near sea port, always be aware of your surroundings, and enjoy the delicious cuisine!
  • Large open space. We were lucky to find it when the local people were celebrating dressed in traditional outfits, dancing and generally having fun. Not sure what it's like at other times.

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.
