You’ll catch your breath at the sight of Mt. Vesuvius hovering on the horizon as you enter the Bay of Naples, and the encircling panorama of Naples lining the harbor. Naples’ busy shipping port is the gateway city for some of Italy’s most famous attractions, with the island of Capri, the ancient ruins of Pompeii and the beautiful Amalfi Coast on its doorstep.
How to Get to Naples
Most cruise liners dock right by the city-center wharf at Naples’ Stazione Marittima, while others may anchor in the Bay of Naples and whisk you ashore aboard a tender. When you land, the waterfront sights are just a short stroll away.
