Naples lies on the picturesque west coast of Italy, close to mythical Mount Vesuvius, the most prominent volcano in history, and just up the road from the equally legendary Pompei ruins. So you have two excellent tourist destinations close by when you visit. The best way to explore Naples and get an initial feel for the city is to take a guided city walk, known as Scale del Petraio. Along the way, have a peek inside the Museo Capella San Severo, a fascinating museum dedicated to the history of alchemy. For music concerts and theatre shows, use StubHub to buy or sell Naples event tickets.
Dipping into the city of Naples
When you think of Naples, you naturally think of traditional Italian food – it is of course the origin of every foodstuff with Neopolitana in its name. A food tour of the city is an excellent way to satisfy every craving you've ever had for the authentic tastes of Italy. However, it's the theatre and arts scene that is the city's real attraction. It has a long history of being one of the centres of the European culture, and theatre productions often include original Renaissance plays, alongside more modern shows. You won't regret making this your focus when you buy Naples event tickets. Naples is also an absolutely football-mad city, and the game dominates city life. A visit wouldn't be complete without experiencing this up close, so book tickets to a match featuring the city's top team, SSC Napoli.
Naples is a theatrical paradise
Naples event tickets for theatre or classical music performances guarantee a world-class experience, which isn't at all surprising given the city's history. Artis Naples is a very popular theatre with a generous capacity that has always put on long runs of famously successful shows, like "Hello Dolly" and "My Fair Lady". In similar vein is Teatro Palapartenope, also worth investigating on StubHub. For smaller, less mainstream productions, book tickets at Teatro Acacia Napoli. On a grander scale is Stadio San Paolo, which plays host to arena-scale concerts and other entertainment events. Also keep an eye out for what's happening in Naples at an old NATO base that holds theatre, cinema and music events throughout the year – Nato di Bagnoli.
History is close by
Once you've climbed nearby Mount Vesuvius and walked the ruins of Pompei, Naples is not too far from other Italian cities worth visiting, like Bari and Solerno. Rome is the closest major city, however, so you have a perfect excuse to visit one of the most historically important cities on the planet.
