REGION HIGHLIGHTS

Hidden Gem: Procida

This tiny island, just a 40 min ferry ride from Naples, is packed with local colour – from the painted houses lining the harbour to the narrow streets filled with local shops and eateries.

Old Favourite: Vesuvius

Dominating the skyline of Naples is Mount Vesuvius – this still active volcano is over a kilometre high and if you feel adventurous you can even climb right up to the summit.

Local Cuisine: Pizza

Whilst you may think you have eaten pizza, you haven’t eaten real pizza until you have tried the original! No fancy stuffed crusts, or pineapple – just the classic and original Pizza Margherita.

See & Do: Pompeii

In the shadow of the volcano which covered this Roman settlement in AD79. Pompeii and nearby Herculaneum are beautifully preserved snapshots on Roman civilisation and well worth a visit.

Festivals & Events: Wine & The City

This festival held each year in May does exactly what the name says – celebrate the wine and urban centre of Naples. Both of which are worth celebrating… especially the wine!

Beaches & Lakes: Baia Domizia

Right next to our Baia Domizia Camping Village is a fantastic beach, with wide golden sands and also a fantastic area of grass, so you can enjoy the beach without sand getting everywhere.

YOUR NAPLES QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Where is Naples?

Naples can be found within the Campania region and the western coast of Southern Italy. Napoli is the third largest city in Italy and is also the capital of Camania, with a total population of just under 1 million people.  

What's the weather like in Naples?

Naples enjoys hot summers with plenty of sunshine to be found from May through September. Rain is a lot less frequent during this time than in the wet autumn and winter months, although there can be the occasional thunderstorm - although we think that this adds to the excitement!

Which Naples beach am I close to on park?

Step outside your accommodation and straight onto Baia Domizia beach when staying at Baia Domizia Camping Village. This sandy shoreline pushes out from pine and juniper trees into clean waters perfect for the kids. As well as our park facilities, there are several cafes in the area if you need to stop off for an ice cream or bite to eat when taking a stroll along the sands.
 

Where can I find the best pizza in Naples?

While this would be debated for an eternity in the city itself, such is the importance of creating the perfect Neapolitan pizza, we would recommend visiting Pepe In Grani. Not too far inland from your accommodation, the restaurant has been the best pizzeria in Italy and is often top of the list for food critics. If you are looking somewhere to get pizza while touring the city, take a look at Sorbillo, Centro Storico. If you can beat the queues, you will get to experience pizza made from organic local ingredients.
