How to Get to Naples
Most cruise liners dock right by the city-center wharf at Naples’ Stazione Marittima, while others may anchor in the Bay of Naples and whisk you ashore aboard a tender. When you land, the waterfront sights are just a short stroll away.
One Day in Naples
One of the first sights you’ll see when you dock is Castel Nuovo, one of the symbols of Naples. If you’d like to learn more about Naples’ history, join a Small Group Sightseeing Tour of the city’s palaces, churches and other highlights. Complete your Napoli experience by strolling to Piazza del Plebiscito, and order authentic pizza at a waterfront restaurant.
But the real highlights lie just outside Naples, so take a Half-Day Trip to Pompeii’s poignant ruins, buried by Mt. Vesuvius more than 1,930 years ago. Or sail away for the day to idyllic Capri, for centuries the holiday island of choice for Europe’s rich and famous. A full-day private shore excursion reveals the cliff-top beauty of Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast’s pretty villages of Ravello and Positano.
All the major cruise lines dock at Naples, including Carnival, Disney, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, MSC Italian, Seabourn, Costa, Thomson, Holland America, Celebrity and Princess. The Italian currency is the euro, and you’ll find exchange bureaus, banks and ATMs in the cruise terminal. English isn’t widely spoken as Italian is the local language, but it is usually understood at major tourist sites.
