Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
The third largest city in Italy, Naples or Napoli in Italian, lies on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, and its centre is home to almost one million people, although almost 4 million live within the metropolitan area.
It’s also one of the oldest and most artistic cities in Italy, with its centro storico or historic centre listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Packed full of palaces, castles and churches, together with a wealth of archaeological treasures, Naples is a wonderful place to spend a few days.
If you arrive via Naples Airport, it pretty soon becomes apparent that there’s no rail system to whisk you to your accommodation and the airport does have a reputation for unauthorized and illegal taxi touts.
To ensure that you get to the centre without any hassle, call us now and Rent A Bus will transport you in style in one of our fleet of minibuses, coaches or limousines.
If you arrive via one of the many cruise ships or ferries that dock at Stazione Marittima and you need group transport, get in touch with us and we’ll organise coach rental for you.
Don’t be put off by the down-at-heel feel of some streets in the centre, especially the ones covered in graffiti as it’s just all part of Naples’ unique appeal.
If you’re looking for areas with a bit more ‘Italian charm’ you may want to head for a walk along the Lungomare or visit Via die Mille and Vomera Hill for upmarket shopping.
With 448 historical and monumental churches, which incidentally is the highest number in the world for any one city, you’re never going to be short of something to see in Naples.
However, there’s more to the city than buildings. There’s the beautiful Gulf of Naples for starters which is overlooked by Mount Vesuvius, fantastic Italian food, art galleries, the Opera and much, much more.
And yet, it’s the churches that make this city, and in particular the centrepiece of Naples Cathedral with its 4th-century mosaics and the fresco by Giovanni Lanfranco. It’s also home to the skull of San Gennara, which is displayed with two phials of his blood, plus an urn containing his bones.
One of the top attractions in Naples is the National Archaeological Museum that contains one of the world’s finest collections of Greco-Roman artefacts. Here you’ll find exhibits such as the Farnese Bull and statue of Hercules, together with stunning mosaics from Pompeii’s Casa del Fauno.
Art lovers will enjoy a visit to the Palazzo Reale di Capoldimonte, which is now home to southern Italy’s largest and richest art gallery, the Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte.
The musuem contains works by such Masters as Botticelli, Michelangelo Caravaggio, Titian and more modern offerings from the likes of Andy Warhol. If opera or ballet is your thing, The Teatro San Carlo has a comprehensive schedule of opera, ballet and other concerts throughout the year.
Other places of interest include Castel dell’Ovo at Porto Santa Lucia, which houses the Museum of Prehistory; Castelnuovo, a huge medieval castle which is currently home to the main city museum and boasts amazing views of the city; and Certosa di San Martino, a Carthusian monastery perched atop a hill close to the centre of the city.
There are also many places to visit outside of the city centre and Rent A Bus Naples will be happy to provide sightseeing tours of Naples and the surrounding area, complete with one of our knowledgeable guides.
