Peak season:

The busiest time of the year is from July to September. Summertime in Naples brings clear, sunny skies, warm temperatures, and little rain. This peak season often sees cheap flights to Naples very difficult to find, as well as large crowds throughout the city who have come to enjoy the long days of sunshine. A lot of residents tend to leave the city for their own vacations towards the latter part of August, so many restaurants and shops could well be closed. That said, you’ll also have far fewer crowds to deal with during the summer, aside from the tourists.

Certain events can also effect costs of flights. The Maggio Dei Monumenti festival begins towards the end of April. It is celebrated city-wide and you’ll find many free events available. The Ferragosto festival also takes place in the summer time, usually around the middle of August, so expect many places to shut down for the celebrations. Due to the festivities, though, you’ll notice a hike in the cost of flights to Naples, so secure your flight tickets well in advance to make a saving.

Off season:

The cold brunt of the winter hits Naples from November all the way through to early March. It’s also quite rainy. This is when you’ll find the cheapest flights to Naples, as well as almost non-existent crowds of tourists. Humidity usually peaks as the temperatures get colder, but if you bring a durable umbrella, you might just be able to handle the weather, and enjoy the best hotel deals and cheap flights to Naples.

You’ll also find cheap flights to Naples if you aim to visit in the spring (late March to early June). During these months, you still get lovely weather, but fewer tourists flooding the streets.

The cheapest day to fly to Naples is usually Wednesday. At the moment, Friday is the most expensive.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Naples?

Naples, Italy Travel Guide

The ancient city of Naples, or Napoli in Italian, is a striking presence in the south of Italy. The city’s natural beauty on the Bay of Naples provides the perfect backdrop to the city’s urban architecture. First-time travelers booking flights to Naples are usually caught off guard by the city’s chaotic vibe. Naples is not one of Italy’s take-it-slow towns. From five-star restaurants to world-famous music festivals, Naples is a hodge-podge of excitement for visitors.

In 1995, the Naples historic center was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site and more travelers are booking flights to Naples to explore the energetic city. After the city sights, visitors can take in some of Naples’ culinary treasures including pizzas and fresh seafood. Music lovers will fly to Naples in June for the city’s biggest music festival, Neapolis, which features local and international artists. Need another reason to book Naples flights? Head to the city in September for the 10-day pizza festival and gorge on world-famous pizzas while listening to local music groups and entertainment. One thing is for certain about Naples, if the sights and sounds don’t seduce you, the aromas will.

With so much history to take in, and things to see and do, it may be difficult to figure out where to start when you get to Naples. Here are some tips to help you plan your trip to Naples and enjoy the smoothest possible visit to this cultural city.

What’s the weather like in Naples?

Although you might be scheduling your flight to Naples around tortellini rather than temperature, climate is still something to consider when planning. Southern Italy’s Mediterranean climate provides for a typically warm, dry summer, and wet and mild fall, winter and spring seasons. The hottest months are July and August, where average temperatures are in the mid to high 70’s (Fahrenheit). Winter averages dip into the high 40’s, while spring and fall average in the 50’s and 60’s, with September being the outlier as it’s usually still quite warm, averaging in the low 70’s.

How long is the flight to Naples?

Step off your plane in the south of Italy for an invigorating and surprisingly busy vibe in Naples. The flight to Naples from New York City takes about nine and a half hours. A trip from London takes about two and a half hours, and flying from Los Angeles takes about thirteen and a half hours.

Which airlines fly to Naples?

While the Naples Airport is international and the largest in the area, it isn’t as large as airports in Rome, Milan and some other Italian cities. It may have fewer carriers, but you can still find flights on several airlines. Some of the popular options include Lufthansa, Air France and Alitalia. Other airlines include Ryanair, easyJet, Eurowings and Volotea.

What should you pack for a flight to Naples?

Prepare for the Mediterranean climate of Naples when you pack for the trip. Summers bring warm, dry temperatures, so pack cool clothes, sunglasses, sunscreen and a sun hat. Fall and winter see lots of rain and less sunlight. Wear clothes that dry quickly, and pack a raincoat or umbrella if you travel during this time. If you plan to visit any of the city’s cathedrals or other religious institutions, pack appropriate clothing. Many have dress codes that require you to cover your legs to the knee and your shoulders.

Getting to and around the city of Naples

Naples International Airport (NAP) is only around 3.7 miles away from the city center, so getting there isn’t too difficult. The cheapest way to Naples would be for you to take the Alibus, which travels to two different stops within Naples: Stazione Centrale and Piazza Municipio. Failing that, you can hail a taxi from outside of the airport. This is more beneficial if there are a few travelers in your party. You can also look into pre-arranging transport when you book your flights to Naples, although this could come at an additional cost.

Once you’ve settled in to your hotel and are ready to explore, you’ll find that it’s a good idea to get a map of the Naples bus terminals and schedules before venturing out. Stazione Centrale is the city’s central station, but the bus map provided at the station isn’t known for its accuracy. Doing a little homework ahead of time will help you get in and out quickly. Naples is considered the heart of southern Italian rail, so you won’t have any trouble getting around. The city is divided into four quarters. Despite its name, the so-called underground transport system, Metropolitana, actually runs above ground, from Giunturco, which is just east of Stazione Centrale, through Piazza Garibaldi and Bagnoli to Pozzuoli. You can buy a ticket at any station, ANM booth or tobacconist. While tickets are valid for unlimited travel on buses, trams, or the Metropolitana, they expire after one hour. Taxis are best found around taxi stands and piazzas; drivers rarely stop for fares on the street. Avoid catching a cab during times of heavy traffic, as the traffic delays could rack up your rate. Driving on your own in Naples sounds easier than it actually is, and high theft rates make mopeds difficult to rent.

What are some things to do in Naples?

Celebrate the birthplace of pizza when in Naples by noshing on an authentic Neapolitan pizza. You’ll have plenty of options. Try a few different pizzerias to discover your favorite. Sip a cup of Neapolitan coffee while you’re in the city. The culinary scene in Naples is an attraction of its own, so don’t miss out on the local fare.

The city is full of ancient buildings with amazing architectural detailing. Simply walking around the city gives you a glimpse at some of these marvels. Numerous cathedrals, palaces and monasteries dot the city. Notable stops to add to your itinerary include San Martino Monastery and Museum, San Domenico Maggiore, Royal Palace and Santa Chiara. The Catacombs of San Gennaro is another must-see on your visit to Naples. Walking around the harbor gives you a different, yet equally stunning, view of the city.

For a cultural experience, check out the National Archaeological Museum to see historical artifacts from the area. The collection includes pieces from Pompeii and numerous art pieces, including marble sculptures and wall paintings. The Capodimonte Royal Palace and Museum is another great place to take in the history of the city. Take your time looking at all of the detailing in the architecture and the artwork, tapestries and furniture decorating the palace. While Naples might be known for its ancient art, the Museum of Contemporary Art adds a modern option to your itinerary.

Another popular option for visitors of Naples is a day trip to the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. While many of the actual artifacts are housed at the National Archaeological Museum, there’s nothing like visiting the actual sites in person. If you’re looking for another day trip idea, don’t miss the chance to visit the gorgeous Amalfi Coast.

Tips for your stay in Naples

  • Students flood the Accademia di Belle Arti, a prestigious art institution, hoping that the talents of former alumni (Giacinti Gigante and Vincenzo Gemito, to name a few) will rub off on them. Students seeking cheap flights to Naples to learn more about art will find everything they need here. Once the convent of San Giovanni Battista Della Monache, the building was constructed in the 17th century, and was made over in 1864 by Enrico Alvino. Beyond its prominent neoclassical façade and grand staircase is the first floor gallery, housing many 19th century Neapolitan paintings.
  • After an all-out air raid in 1943, the Basilica di Santa Chiara has only two things that remain undamaged: its 14th century fresco, and its chapel. When it was first built, it was meant to house more than 200 monks, and has become a popular religious destination for tourists. Stroll through its beautiful outdoor walk way, lined with ornately painted columns on your way into its stately gothic interior.
  • For the opera-loving tourist, Italy has one of the leading selections of vocal prodigies, and if you’re booking your flight to Naples between October and May (opera season), you’re in luck. The Teatro di San Carlo, the opera house across the street from Galleria Umberto, is one of the largest in Italy. Built for King Charles’ birthday in 1737, construction took only six months to complete, and to this day still boasts a restored neo-classical style. Acoustics here are of the best and often compared to opera houses of Milan. And if it’s good enough for Pavarotti to sing there, you can bet it’s worth a visit.
  • It’s no secret that Italians know how to celebrate, and Christmas is something they specialize in. If you book a flight to Naples during the holidays, you can forget about your one-day shindigs, because Naples hosts a month-long fiesta in the Chiana district that’s enough to make you forgo peak season. Laden with live music, gospel singers, art exhibitions, walks through historic churches, and performances onstage, you won’t leave Naples empty handed. If the kids are in tow, there’s a Christmas forest called Bosco di Natale that has special hidden surprises and children-geared acrobatic shows at Circo Vagante. Finally, be sure to check out Christmas Village, where devoted to artisans and craftspeople display their work.
