Naples — 4 nights

Naples is the capital of the Italian region Campania and the third-largest municipality in Italy after Rome and Milan. Venture out of the city with trips to Pompeii (House of Menander (Casa del Menandro) & Villa dei Misteri). There's much more to do: delve into the distant past at Pompeii Archaeological Park, explore the world behind art at Museo Cappella Sansevero, take an in-depth tour of Galleria Borbonica, and see the interesting displays at Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli.

For photos, ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Naples trip itinerary maker site.

Miami, USA to Naples is an approximately 15.5-hour combination of flight and train. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Central European Standard Time (CET), which is usually a 6 hour difference. Traveling from Miami in March, expect nights in Naples to be a bit cooler, around 46°F, while days are cooler, around 61°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Fri) early enough to go by car to Positano.
