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 an altitude of 500 feet above sea level, its many viewpoints offer breathtaking panoramic views of the city of Naples and its gulf, admiring the islands of Capri and Ischia, Vesuvius, the Bay of Bacoli and Monte di Procida.

Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte

Located in the ancient Capodimonte palace, on a hill and surrounded by an immense 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 place where the city's town hall stands, hence its name, the Palazzo San Giacomo.

Catacombs of San Gennaro

These interesting catacombs were subway centers of paleochristian burials, consecrated to Gennaro in the 5th century as a burial place for his remains, later transferred to the Cathedral of Naples. Until the 11th century, the catacombs were the resting place of the remains of the bishops of Naples, although between the 13th and 18th centuries they were heavily looted.

Vicky's Traveler Tip

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