Like all Italian cities, Naples has its charm, but it’s worth visiting for its surrounding attractions. Many charming spots can be found in its immediate surroundings and here are some of the best day-trip destinations you shouldn’t miss during your visit.

Mount Vesuvius

Mount Vesuvius is located east of Naples and a visit to this city is incomplete if you don’t take some time to explore it. Its eruption famously destroyed the Roman city of Pompeii and seeing it in the flash will make you feel like you’re visiting ancient history first-hand.


This tiny island in the Bay of Naples is one of Italy’s most iconic resort towns, frequently visited by the rich and famous. It’s home to many upscale hotels and designer fashion stores, but its natural beauty still remains its main draw. Even if your budget is limited, you can still enjoy its sun-kissed beaches, rugged landscapes, and natural cave the Blue Grotto.


Charming little towns are scattered all around Italy and Sorrento is one of the very best you’ll find in Naples’ close proximity. It will win you over with its historic center, sweeping views of the sea, and ceramics shops that it’s best known for.
