Naples International Airport is located in the Capodichino district of the city, about 4 miles outside the city center. Several rental car companies operate facilities at the airport, and you can rent a car or pick up a car you have reserved through Orbitz.com. Fixed-rate taxi service is available from the airport to central Naples. The Alibus Shuttle Bus is an inexpensive way to get from the airport to the center. It stops at the central railway station and Naples Molo Beverello Port in the center of the city after departing from the airport. It costs €3.00 and runs every 20 minutes.
Visit the Capella Sansevero for an artistic and historical experience, as this chapel was built during the Baroque era. It is the burial chamber of the Sansevero family, and it is home to ancient skeletons as well as marble sculptures. The ancient Greek settlement of Herculaneum Ercolano is preserved by the hot mud that encased it when nearby Mount Vesuvius erupted nearly two millennia ago. The Spaccanapoli neighborhood is a great way to experience the city as the natives do, and it is an ideal place to sample Neapolitan cuisine.
Naples is warm throughout the year. During the coldest months from December to February, highs are in the mid-50s and lows reach 41 to 43 degrees Fahrenheit. The hottest months are from June to September, with highs of 79 degrees and lows of 61 degrees in June and September and highs of 84 degrees and lows of 63 degrees in July and August. November is the rainiest month, but keep an umbrella handy no matter when you go. Sunscreen is especially necessary from April to September.
Naples is full of theaters, nightclubs, cafes, restaurants and local boutiques. When you save time and money by booking cheap flights to Naples with Orbitz.com, as well as finding sales on low-cost hotel and car rental packages, you'll be able to get the most out of your trip.
Naples has a Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers in the mid-90s. This coincides with peak travel season, from May to September. Naples is already the most densely populated city in Europe, so its version of crowded trumps even the most visited continental cities. August is a particularly rough time to visit; pretty much the entire country is on holiday, so many restaurants and hotels are either closed or filled with Italian tourists, who flock to the coasts. The tourist season also brings higher hotel and restaurant prices—both of which fill a lot further in advance.
You can also expect to see high costs around Easter, when Naples hosts a huge parade, and Christmas, when hundreds of nativity scenes are on display. During New Year’s, tourists arrive to enjoy one of Italy’s grandest fireworks displays.
You’ll find better deals and fewer crowds during the shoulder seasons, specifically from September through November and in the early spring. Naples has a rainy stretch from December to March, but for the rest of the year, the weather is pretty ideal. Other than during the summer, temperatures average in the 50s, and breezes off of the Bay of Naples keep the air fresh—even in southern Italy’s biggest city.
