Come and see Italy’s southern gem, where you can find sea, fun, food, and music! Especially food - you’ve heard about the pizza, right? Naples is both gritty and majestic, its culture made famous by its prominence in movies and its history firmly secured in the books. This coastal city boasts secluded bays, castles and plenty of gelato.
Finding a great Naples hostel is easy. Many Naples hostels are central, close to the station and to Spaccanapoli, the street that splits the city in two. The best hostels in Naples offer shared dorms and private rooms, games rooms, gardens and rooftop bars. Whatever you are interested in, whether that is playing music, watching plays or sleeping in an ex-textile factory from the 1800s, you will definitely find a hostel in Naples for that.
The historic centre is the beating heart of the city and it’s a UNESCO World Heritage site. There you will find all the best attractions, like Piazza del Plebiscito, the beautiful Cathedral, and the Royal Palace. This neighbourhood is also the best place to go to have fun, as it’s where a lot of University students live. Quartieri Spagnoli is alive with Neopolitan spirit and typical of life in the city for authenticity-seekers. Or for a calmer pace of life stay up on the hillside around Vomero.
When you think about Naples you may think about the sea and the Castel dell’Ovo looking over it. If you want to hear the waves and eat some good fish then take a stroll down Posillipo neighbourhood, where you’ll also find the beautiful Marechiaro and parks to relax. For a breathtaking view of the city, you can go to the Vomero neighbourhood, up on a hill and full of gardens, liberty style architecture and interesting boutiques. Much of this city’s best bits can be found on foot, down alleyways and there’s always something to see just around the corner. Take a free walking tour to scratch beneath the surface and try all the pizza and gelato! Often hostels in Naples offer day trips to Pompeii, Herculaneum and to the coast, to enjoy everything that this region has to offer.
In Naples, you can cycle or walk, or if you want to go the lazy way, use the buses, funicular and metro lines. Some of the subway stations were turned into beautiful art pieces that you can’t miss. You can buy public transport tickets from vending machines or bars and tobacconists. Naples has an international airport from where you can take the bus to the city centre.
