Via Caracciolo e Lungomare di Napoli, Naples

4.7
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.

  • Via Caracciolo offers beautiful panoramic views over Posillipo, Castel dell'Ovo etc. Is a truly elegant waterfront. Too bad some nooks definitely dirty.

  • Who goes to Naples in my opinion must pass the first day going to Spaccanapoli, San Gregorio Armeno, eat pizza, visit monuments, etc. The second day (without taking any nonsense in one day) is to be spent with a long and beautiful Boardwalk, then visit maybe Naples "high". In short, beautiful, but don't do it in a hurry.

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.
