      In a day trip, you should be able to save two hours for a walk through this museum.

    • La Sfogliatella MaryVia Toledo 66, Naples 80134 Italy
      Keane recommended La Sfogliatella Mary

      The best sfogliatelle in Naples, according to my friend who lives here. I've had others that were as good, though not for the same price. Both types here are good, though I prefer the flaky variety. ... read more
      This bakery in the Galleria also sells other local favorites like baba.

      One of the best sfogliatelle I ever had. Service was friendly and the restaurant is very pretty. This location is high up in Vomero, where you can shop and catch some views as well.

      I've only had the pizza for the road, and it is a massive portion for just 1,50 euros. It's folded and wrapped so you can eat it on the go. It's basically a whole pizza in a portable form. Be sure to ... read more
      ask for it hot because, during the second visit, they gave me an unheated pizza. It was a hot day, so it actually worked better for me.

      You don't actually have to fine inside of Di Matteo to enjoy their goods. The renowned Napolitano restaurant sells a number of delicious fried items outside. Take, for example, the mouthwatering ... read more
      arancini or the fried cheesy macaroni known as the croche'... O Madonna! But if you choose to dine inside, you'll get some of the best pizza in the world for just 5-6 euros per pie. Yes, the whole pie. It is amazing. This is heaven. I just came home after eating it and I want to go back now.

      Barbara, if I had to see ONE thing in Naples, this church is where I would stop, again. Also known as Santa Maria della Pietà chapel, it's a small church but not that hard to find - it's just north of San Domenico Maggiore, in the historic center. The attractions here are the marble sculptures inside, notably Giuseppe Sanmartino's The Veiled Christ. I'm not particularly a religious person but, to stand there in awe of that work, it was as close to "illumination" (to quote Sean Connery in Indiana Jones) as I had ever experienced in my life.

      Here's a photo from the web: http://www.arte.it/work_of_art/cristo-velato-5047 but it doesn't really do it justice - you have to be there to fully appreciate the genius of that sculpture!

      An excellent place to try two of Naples' specialties: sfogliatelle and baba. Stop in here for excellent pastries and an espresso on one of Naples' most beautiful squares.

      here. Just bakeries, butchers, and coffee bars. And a tremendous amount of churches. The streets are narrow and the buidlings are high. I could walk around the "centro storico" for days and would still find it interesting.

      I've been in Naples five years ago so I cannot suggest you anything for dinner, however I suggets you trying to find something in Chiaia, which is a very alive part of Naples.

      It is a very curious street which cuts Naples in two. it is very long and made of three main streets. it was built by the Greeks so it is very ancient and crosses different areas of the city, one of ... read more
      which, Quartieri Spagnoli, is not really recommended for tourists. In via San Gregorio Armeno there is the Market of Presepi; the characters of Presepi are hand made in small laboratories along this street. they are open all through the year, but obviously during Christmas time the became even more interesting.

      Castel dell'Ovo is a symbol of Naples and represent a really interesting spot. It was built around 100 B.C. and was occupied during the century by different dominators. It was even used as a prison.

      It is not necessary to visit it inside; it is just nice to look at it from outside, while walking along the sea.

      Piazza del Plebiscito is the most famous square in Naples. It is in the heart of the city and there are really interesting monuments all around. However it is a little dirty and maybe tourists prefers ... read more

      If you like hostel culture, you'd like Hotel of the Sun. This place is located in an old building, (the elevator is little bit tricky) in a very convenient location. It's quiet residencial area. ... read more
      Fifteen minutes walking distance away from the Naples old city. Tram works perfectly. The hostel is two blocks away fromt the tram station, and it's the last station of the tram. The place has a very lively vibe, friendly and informative. The owners are helpful with the plans.

      best in the world. I've heard quite a few stories about Naples being expensive, but it's matter of if you find the right place to eat. Only 4 -6 Euros, you'll get the entire pizza for yourself. Try their fried pasta (almost fried mac and cheese). It's good to start the meal.

      This is from a blog of mine because the restaurant is not in Gogobot.
      If you can find this place it is well worth it. Ask a local Neopolitan.

      Frederica was willing to take us out to a restaurant that she wanted to go to for a while and then give a tour of Naples in her car. The restaurant was in the Spanish Quarter and it was called Nannella. This was authentic Napoli. Waiters flying around with up to 8 dishes on their arms, lots of yelling out orders from the kitchen and the fastest service imaginable. Plates just appear right in front of you. The food was delicious! At the end of the meal Danielle was dragged into the other room by one of the waiters and he started twirling her around to the music that was playing. We were then ready for the bill and Abby was told by Frederica to yell out "eh Pasquale!" which was our server's name. He did not say it loud enough so I bellowed it out and Pasquale stopped, wandering what the hell was that. With the bill payed and a nice tip next was Frederica's tour of the city at night.
