Best 10 day-trips from Naples to Amalfi Coast - Tips for a holiday in Southern Italy

Trip to Naples and its surroundings, the top 10 activities to do including walking and guided tours, attractions, museum and daily excursions

Naples is a city of thousand faces with a historical, architectural, artistic an natural heritage of global significance. This is the reason why its historic city centre – which is considered the largest in Europe – was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1995.

Having said that, the city is also an ideal base for guidad tours and day trips across Campania. Indeed, it would be a huge mistake leaving Naples without visiting the Royal Palace of Caserta, the ruins of the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum as well as exploring the Vesuvius National Park and the Amalfi Coast.
