    Go to Naples to say stop at Piazza del Plebiscito, put on a blindfold and try to switch between the two horse statues. Then take off the blindfold and enjoy a sense of belonging to this mild tradition, drifting from it.

  • Very beautiful square, and there is a nearby palace to visit. Also close to views of the ocean.
  • Huge square, great place to watch people and unwind after walking Via Toledo.
  • Spectacular setting. Gorgeous example of architecture. Very busy.
  • Very large square with plenty of people watching opportunities. On one end its the cathedral and the other the palace.
  • Beautiful and wide open-air place, where you can sit on the floor and contemplate both the Royal Palace​ and the Basillic.

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.
