Via Caracciolo e Lungomare di Napoli, Naples

(4.7/5 based on 4,200+ 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.

  • We loved taking our walks according to drink on this walk. When the city took us the nerves we had the happiness to find the sea here on this via.

  • What can I say, only if you get a chance to walk along this promenade you will discover the beauty of the place. Vesuvius also serves to this, in the face of those who would like more!
