Naples, Italy expert cruise advice
Many cruisers head off to see Pompeii, Capri, or the Amalfi Coast. These are good choices, but you can also spend a memorable day in Naples itself.
This small restaurant in the Centro Storico district is where, after many visits to the Eternal City, we fell in love with Rome for the first time.

We chose to the the Capri For a Day instead of touring Naples since we have been there before. It was the best excursion I have ever been on in the 30 years I’ve been cruising. Capri was the most beautiful place I’ve seen. We took the super fast ferry to the island (about 40 minutes each way) and were guided for half the time and left for free time the other half. At the top of Capri there is a chair lift that fits one person and takes you to the very top of the island. The roughly 15 minute ride to the top was the most breathtaking environment I’ve ever experienced!! Butterflies were everywhere and the sound of chirping birds surrounded us. It actually felt like heaven! Once we got to the top the views were unreal (you can check out the pics in my profile). I can’t wait to return and make it a 3 day trip one day! I highly recommend this tour! My 15 year old daughter also commented it was the prettiest place she’s even seen!
Took tour to Amalfi & Pompeii. Both were amazing. So beautiful. Delicious pastries in Amalfi. Tasty margarita pizza in Naples.

Naples itself was nothing to really see compared to the other ports, but Pompeii was definitely something that someone should go see once in their lifetime. But Sorrento was well worth the drive. Such a beautiful little coastal town with great views and wonderful people. Must try the limoncello.

Didn’t see any of Naples, as we did Pompeii and Sorrento. Would have liked this tour to include a little highlight of Naples, perhaps as we were leaving the port area on our way to Pompeii. If you do the included tour of Naples, there isn’t enough time to see anything else. Pompeii and Sorrento were amazing!

we did the Pompeii and mount Vesuvius, all I can say is what happened to that mountain, it is less than half its original size. Pompeii was amazing to see and take in. The engineering, better than today.
