Although it is a very large city, if you are planning your holiday in Naples to visit the wonderful monuments of the historic center, you can limit your visit to only a portion of the city that you can easily walk around wearing a pair of comfortable shoes. Our advice, if you do not take an accomodation in the historic center, is to move with Line 1 of the Metro. Through the stops of Municipio, Toledo, Dante and Museo you can reach the heart of the historic center.
Being a densely populated city, Naples Italy is very chaotic throughout the week and for this reason it is not recommended to move by car also because the city’s transport network consisting of buses, metro and funiculars allows you to reach any point of the city without any problem. For some time now, the Helbiz and Reby electric scooter sharing services have also been active in the most touristic areas of the city.
Within about 1 km from the Dante metro station you can admire some of the most famous monuments of Naples Italy – the Sansevero Chapel, Naples Underground, the Complex of Santa Chiara and San Lorenzo Maggiore, San Gregorio Armeno and many others. In the arc of about 300 meters from the Toledo metro station, however, you can admire Plebiscito Square, the Royal Palace, the San Carlo Theater, the Maschio Angioino, the Umberto I Gallery and the Bourbon Tunnel. Continuing on a pleasant walk – about 1.5 km – between historic buildings and shops, you will reach the Naples seafront and Castel Dell’Ovo from where you can admire one of the most beautiful views in the world.
Public transport in Naples Italy consisting of buses, metro and funiculars is managed by the ANM company. A single ride on a vehicle costs €1.10 while the day ticket €3.50. The day ticket lasts 24 hours from its validation and allows you to take unlimited buses, metro and funiculars. Since Naples is a city full of traffic I advise against using buses. The metro works every day from 6:00 to 23:00 but in some periods of the year the closure is extended over the weekend. To check the operating hours of the metro and funiculars, we recommend that you visit the official ANM webpage.
