Visit the coast
Take a drive along the coast for a completely new outlook on what the beauty of a coastline can really be. With roads right along the water, on one side of your car will be awe-striking ocean scenery while the other displays the bright colors and cultural Italian architecture. Stop by places such as the Naples & Capodimonte Museum to immerse yourself in the true magnificence of Naples. You may do this by renting a car, getting on the tour bus, or renting a private van with a driver. Stop for a meal of fresh seafood or pizza anywhere (they’re all good!) for a casual dining experience you’ll never forget.
