Naples is the capital of the Italian region Campania and the third-largest municipality in Italy after Rome and Milan. Kids will enjoy Via San Gregorio Armeno and Villa Comunale. Get out of town with these interesting Naples side-trips: Eden Parco Giochi (in Pompeii) and Salerno (Chiesa di San Giorgio, Tempio di Pomona, &more). There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Galleria Borbonica, steep yourself in history at Parco Acheologico di Ercolano, browse the exhibits of Museo Cappella Sansevero, and pause for some serene contemplation at Cloister of Santa Chiara.

To see photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Naples trip planner.

Krakow, Poland to Naples is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and train. In December, Naples is somewhat warmer than Krakow - with highs of 17°C and lows of 6°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Fri) to allow time to drive to Amalfi.
