Great views across Naples and the bay but the space behind could be used so much better. There is some seating but only one bench that has any shade so not ideal on scorching summer days. They should have more benches in the shaded area and a kiosk selling drinks and snack as this might encourage more people to visit.

This is without a doubt the most beautiful district of Naples, quieter and less busy for what I could see during my journey here. The Vomero is famous throughout the world for its spectacular panoramic views and almost all the photos that you see with the Gulf of Naples and Mount Vesuvius in the background has Been taken right here...

Literally, it is up on a hill overlooking Napoli with quite a spectacular view of the city and the sea beyond. Unlike Napoli, the streets are clean and the overall ambiance is very upscale. There are beautiful Art Nouveau buildings to be seen there as well on a lovely walk down the hill side.

A different part of Naples above the swarming crowds of old Naples. Its more upmarket with great views of Naples and the bay. Accessible by a quaint funicular. While your up here make sure you check out the Certosa di San Martino and Castel Sant'Elmo.

Vomero is easy to reach by furnicular from Montesanto ( this is the big station with the escalators NOT the much smaller metro station round the corner). If you have bought a Napoli Artecard, the furnicular ride is free. You won't get much of a view from the furnicular itself because much of the journey is inside a tunnel, but... More

Up the funicular railway from Montesanto and you enter a different world. A total contrast to the wonderful chaos of Naples below, this area is clean and calm by comparison. Even the car parking seems to have a sense of order. Maybe going on a Sunday helped. Still need to watch where you step though. Nicer area = richer inhabitants... More

I stayed here for 3 days and never once was I bored, so much to see and do, I recommend you visit the castle for some beautiful views of Naples and the bay, Villa Flordiana was an oasis of calm, also with vistas worth seeing. You can also get the metro or the funicular down into the city, a 90... More

.....and stepped into a completely different city. Vomero is set high on a hill in Napoli and is considered one of the best neighbourhoods in the area. The streets and general ambiance feel quite different from other areas of the city. Clean streets with really nice feel to it. More 'well known' shops in this area if that's what you're... More

Vomero is the area that puts Naples shopping on the map. The central area is blocked off to most traffic and on a nice weekend afternoon has the feel of a large mall with street performers and ice cream (gelato) shops. The shopping area is several blocke long and wide an contains hundreds of small shops selling everything under the... More
