In the same district of Naples International Airport, an area known as “Campo di Marte“, hosted the first flight exhibitions in Naples back in 1910. During the First World War, “Campo di Marte” became a military airport, while during World War II, was used as a combat airfield. Its commercial use started in 1950. Nowadays, Naples International Airport features one terminal building, where Terminal 1 is used for all flights, as well as a single runaway.

What to do in Naples
Located on the western coast of Italy, Naples is a beautiful city and the third largest one in Italy. Facing the Tyrrhenian Sea, Naples has been inhabited since the Neolithic period, hosting ongoing human activity through ancient Greek times to the Roman Empire and further. Fierce battles, rising civilizations and a rich past have formed Naples as it is today, a colorful and exuberant city, combining a history time travel and a modern urban centre, on the foothills of course of Mount Vesuvius and under the spell casted by the aromas of a pizza napolitana!
Start your exploration in Naples by walking along the waterfront at its harbor, where Lungomare, a beach promenade offers beautiful views to Vesuvius and plenty of places to stop and enjoy an espresso or ice-cream. Here, you can also find Castel Ovo, the oldest castle in Naples, featuring an Ethno-Prehistory Museum with ceramics and other artifacts. Continue your trip with a royalty tour, by visiting Palazzo Reale di Capodimonte. Once a royal residence, today it houses the National Gallery (Galleria Nazionale), one of the finest art collections in Italy. More than 500 paintings including works by Caravaggio, Raphael, Botticelli and El Greco are featured here, along with furniture, tapestries, and porcelain used in the palace during the Bourbon and Savoy dynasties. Also, along the east side of Piazza del Plebiscito, the Royal Palace, residence of the Bourbon kings and built in 1651, is beautiful on the inside and outside too.
Diving in some more historical monuments, the intriguing Cappella Sansevero, built in 1590, was a private and burial chapel of the Sansevero family. In his Baroque style premises, the eccentric Prince of Sansevero, whose name surrounded rumors for his dark endeavors, left an impressive and peculiar collection of artefacts, that are worth to visit today. On the same, out of the ordinary path, lies the unfinished underground passage, known as the Galleria Borbonica. Built in the 19th century as an escape passageway for King Ferdinand II, it was never finished, but hosts today some spooky tunnels featuring cisterns and a variety of relics and debris.
Take a private transfer and visit the second-century Catacombs of San Gennaro, where passages and tomb chambers feature amazing frescos, as well as the basilica built near the catacombs during the fifth century, standing as a rare example of early Christian architecture. The Museo Archeologico Nazionale features one of the world’s finest collections of antiquities, many of which originated in Pompeii. Marble sculptures, including the colossal Farnese Hercules, the famous ancient mosaics Alexander’s Battle, bronze sculpture and ancient wall paintings, are also exhibited here. Visit one of the largest theaters in Europe at Real Teatro di San Carlo, the model for opera houses everywhere, offering six levels of ornately decorated boxes and hosting operas, concerts and ballet performances.
Last but not least, your private taxi transfers offer the chance to do fun and interesting day trips outside Naples. A must tour is to Pompeii, this ancient city frozen in time after the eruption of Vesuvious in 79 AD. A trip to Herculaneum too, a city engulfed by molten lava after the same eruption, offers an insight to Roman life. Of course, you can visit Vesuvius itself, where a National Park of 1,000 meters altitude offers spectacular views. And if you feel the need to walk by the sea, a private taxi transfer to Amalfi Coast is ideal, as colorful villages and blue Mediterranean waters form a picturesque scenery.
