National Archaeological Museum of Naples (MANN)

The best museum in Naples is also one of the longest running and most important in the world. The MANN is an impressive display of items from the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum, impressive rooms such as the Hall of the Sundial, galleries dedicated to Egyptian art and the most remarkable numismatic collections in the world.

Virgilian Park

This immense park is a marvel of relaxation and nature. Located on the promontory of the hill of Posillipo, at a height of 150 meters above sea level, its many viewpoints offer breathtaking panoramic views of the city of Naples and its gulf, with the islands of Capri and Ischia, Vesuvius, the Bay of Bacoli and Monte di Procida.

Museum e Real Bosco di Capodimonte

Located in the ancient palace of Capodimonte, on a hill and surrounded by a huge and beautiful labyrinthine garden, it houses the Farnese collection. In Capodimonte you will see collections of porcelain; the Farnese and Bourbon armories; the Neapolitan Gallery, with 44 rooms that retrace the history of the city through various works of art; and a collection of contemporary and nineteenth-century art.

Piazza del Municipio

The impressive Piazza del Municipio is one of the largest squares in Europe and one of the most important in the city due to its proximity to Naples' main points of interest, such as the port, the Maschio Angioino or Via Toledo. It is also the site of the city's town hall, hence its name, Palazzo San Giacomo.

###Catacombs of San Gennaro These interesting catacombs were subway centers of early Christian burials, consecrated to Gennaro in the 5th century as a burial place for his remains, which were later transferred to the Cathedral of Naples. Until the eleventh century, the catacombs were the resting place of the remains of the bishops of Naples, although between the thirteenth and eighteenth centuries they suffered significant looting.

Always have as a reference Piazza Municipio, the point where the three routes cross and you can change from one line to another.
