The list of romantic things to do in Naples could be a long one. In fact, thanks to the beauty that colours its every nuance, the city can offer unique romantic moments. Unmissable sunsets and panoramas, walks by the sea or in the most absolute green: the choice is truly vast and all to be discovered and experienced.

We tried to pick the 10 most romantic things to do in Naples, although this was by no means an easy feat! For several activities there is also the Naples Pass to support you.

10. Discovering Marechiaro and the "Fenestella"

We start our love tour with the chic Posillipo district, where we find the charming suburb of Marechiaro. This is a real gem that can be reached via the Marechiaro Descent, which leads to a small beach. Here you will find 'A' Fenestella', the historic window mentioned in one of the most famous classic Neapolitan songs, 'A' Marechiare' by Salvatore Di Giacomo. Legend has it that the Neapolitan poet and writer saw a carnation on the window sill and was deeply inspired by it.

9. The Mergellina promenade and the Borgo Marinari

We then move on to one of the city's places par excellence, perhaps the city's 'symbol' space: the Mergellina seafront. The beauty of this corner of Naples is magical, walking and breathing love just a stone's throw from the sea, your eyes captivated by the city's gulf. About 2 km to walk hand in hand in the company of your other half, with the possibility of admiring such wonders as Vesuvius, the island of Capri and Posillipo in a few glances.

From the seafront, you continue on towards Castel dell'Ovo, climbing to the top, having the most efficient overview possible. Once back down, we plunge into the Borgo Marinari, a place that preserves a myth full of love. In fact, it was born on the islet of Megaride, where the body of the siren Partenope, who let herself die in the waters after being rejected by Ulysses, is said to have been buried. It was Megaride that gave life to the entire city of Naples.

8. Admiring the 'Vicolo dell'Amore' in the Quartieri Spagnoli

You do not necessarily need the sea to breathe love. In Naples, it is also possible to breathe and feel it in the alleys of the centre, always full of life and warmth. Among others, Vico Santa Maria delle Grazie, also known as 'Vicolo dell'amore', a street full of roses and decorations, stands out. Here we are in the Quartieri Spagnoli, one of the famous quartier of the entire city. One only has to look up and admire it to immerse oneself in love and romance. It is by far one of the most Instagrammed places in the city, thanks to the many love phrases posted there.

7. Have a romantic experience on Vesuvius

Love is also discovery, an adventure always becoming and transforming. Therefore, exploring Vesuvius in all its magnificence has to be one of the romantic things to do in Naples! Here you can breathe in all the history and grandeur of the natural park around the volcano, which has also been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995. It is from here that you can admire the city in its entirety, for a panorama to be experienced and discovered in all its magnificence.

6. The beauty and charm of the Amalfi Coast

We move even further from the city centre, heading towards the province of Salerno with the Amalfi Coast. We are talking about one of Italy's excellences, not just from Campania. One of the most beautiful, but beautiful in the true sense of the word, and most attractive places in the whole of Italy. There are countless wonderful destinations to experience: from Amalfi to Maiori, from Positano to Vietri sul Mare and many more. Evocative landscapes with the sea and its magical air always acting as a glue.

The natural beauty of the coastline can be appreciated above all thanks to the numerous paths, the most outstanding of which is the Path of the Gods, through which one can admire this corner of paradise in all its splendour. By sea, on the other hand, the classic boat tour is not to be missed, discovering hidden beaches and the most crystal-clear waters.

5. A route to the park: the Virgiliano, the Floridiana and the Real Bosco di Capodimonte

We return to the romance of the city, diving into the greenery of Naples with its main parks. We start with Parco Virgiliano, a park located in the hill district of Posillipo. This is a historic space for the city, open every day and consisting of terraces overlooking the entire Gulf of Naples. Moving on to the Vomero we instead find the Villa Floridiana, another great green lung for the city, full of romance and charm, as well as a breathtaking panorama.

Another beautiful green area to experience hand in hand is the Real Bosco di Capodimonte, which covers 134 hectares with over 400 different plant species. We are talking about one of the most visited parks in Campania and beyond, given also the splendour of the museum of the same name inside the royal palace. Here art, beauty and plenty of greenery all come together to breathe in the company of your sweetheart, thanks also to the romantic sunsets that characterise the park.

4. The panorama of San Martino Belvedere

One of the most romantic things to do in Naples is certainly a visit to the belvedere of San Martino. We are in the hilly district of Vomero, where you can admire one of the most breathtaking sights in the city. The belvedere overlooks the whole of Naples, you can peer into its every corner, in all its colours. From historical sites such as the mammoth Santa Chiara or the Duomo, but also that enormous wound that is Spaccanapoli.

The Belvedere di San Martino is located outside the Certosa monastery of the same name, the city's historic museum and the centre of Neapolitan painting in the 17th century. Also just a stone's throw away, let's not forget Castel Sant'Elmo, another fantastic attraction not to be missed. We are talking about a mighty medieval construction used as a museum overlooking the Gulf of Naples, cradle of truly spectacular sunsets.

3. Promenade at the Pozzuoli promenade

We move on to the Campi Flegrei, where another very beautiful and famous promenade awaits us. We are talking about the one in Pozzuoli, named 'Sandro Pertini'. It is one of the places most frequented by tourists visiting the Phlegrean area, but populated above all by its inhabitants in their everyday lives. Among the various sports fields, we find benches and free access to the sea, where it is possible to stop at sunset and admire the islands of Nisida, Capri and Ischia, never so close.

2. Visit to the fairytale Casina Vanvitelliana

20240208211101Progetto senza titolo (22).png

On the waters of Lake Fusaro in Bacoli stands a construction bordering on the fairy-tale. We are talking about the Casina Vanvitelliana, an admirable and magical place that arouses amazement just at the sight of it. Its structure is so impressive, since it is built on a small island slightly away from the shore, to which it is connected by a wooden pier. It is such a fairy-tale setting that it was renamed 'Pinocchio's Little House' because it is reminiscent of the home of the Blue Fairy. It is a full exaltation of aesthetics at all times of the day, but the romance reaches lofty heights especially at sunset. At that point, all that remains is to stop and admire.

1. Romantic escape to the islands: Procida, Ischia and Capri

Among the many, many romantic things to do in Naples is to add a sweet escape to the three islands: Procida, Ischia and Capri. All three very different but all capable of providing tourists and visitors with unforgettable experiences. Lovely ancient villages, numerous spa facilities, limpid beaches all to be discovered. In short, the menu is really rich, there is only something to feast your eyes on.

If on Procida we enjoy Marina Corricella, the island's most colourful village and the oldest and most charming, on Capri a boat trip with a view of the Faraglioni, an unmissable natural beauty, is a must. One of the most romantic spots, however, is to be found on Ischia, starring the village of Sant'Angelo, an authentic corner of paradise that descends a stone's throw from the sea. An experience to be lived.
