Naples is the foodie’s dream city of Italy. With over 960,000 residents in the
city, it is the third largest urban area in Italy. Naples is often overshadowed
by other Italian cities, but it is filled with art, history and magnificent
food! Famous tourist attractions of this beautiful city include Naples
Cathedral, Cappella Sansevero and Santa Lucia.
Naples experiences a beautiful Mediterranean climate, which means the weather is
almost always very lovely. The best times to visit would have to be over spring
(March to May) and autumn (September and October), as this is when you will have
missed most of the peak season tourists and the temperature is on average about
23°C. In the peak of tourist season, August, many small business owners also
tend to close up shop in Naples, allowing for more tourists than locals in the
city. Though the winter months are generally off peak season, Italy as a whole
tends to get very busy as the country is full of tourists visiting the Vatican
in Rome and its surrounding cities.
Naples is home to the most mouth-watering oven-baked pizzas in Italy, and that
isn’t even the best thing about it! The city is a buzz of chilled, laid-back
activities and many amazing sites to see, so make sure you plan on staying for
at least a few days to fully appreciate everything in this Italian gem.
