Via Caracciolo e Lungomare di Napoli, Naples

(4.7/5 based on 4,000+ reviews on the web)
Take a walk or drive along Via Caracciolo e Lungomare di Napoli, a long seafront promenade lined with renowned hotels, restaurants, and shops. Along the promenade are numerous spots where you can stop, rest, and enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding hills and distant Vesuvius. This popular waterfront road was named after Francesco Caracciolo, a hero of the Neapolitan Republic who was hanged and then thrown into the bay on the orders of Horatio Nelson, a famed admiral of the British Royal Navy. The promenade was built between 1869 and 1880, and is separated from the sea only by a few artificial reefs, which have replaced ancient beaches that once lined the bay. The road is open to motor vehicles in both directions, with an adjacent bike path on the sea side.

  • To visit at least once in your life ... before dying hoping as late as possible. To remember that if you go to Naples try to stay in a vacation rental, you will enjoy the friendly atmosphere of the place and the friendliness of Npoletani.

  • Ideal place for a great walk sound, or a nice little run. Recommended especially during the week, as the weekend is filled with people and the walk becomes less pleasant. Plenty of restaurants and stalls. The best part of Naples. Also very close to piazza del Plebiscito and the best shopping in town. Try the pizza di Sorbillo, the crepes of Cyrus and the puffs of Gambrinus. And if you really want to enjoy the beauty of Naples, I'd recommend staying at the Relais, Seaview room. Partenope It's wonderful to wake up in the morning and see this amazing place.
