Via Caracciolo e Lungomare di Napoli, Naples

4.7
Take a walk or drive along Via Caracciolo e Lungomare di Napoli, a long seafront promenade lined with renowned hotels, restaurants, and shops. Along the promenade are numerous spots where you can stop, rest, and enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding hills and distant Vesuvius. This popular waterfront road was named after Francesco Caracciolo, a hero of the Neapolitan Republic who was hanged and then thrown into the bay on the orders of Horatio Nelson, a famed admiral of the British Royal Navy. The promenade was built between 1869 and 1880, and is separated from the sea only by a few artificial reefs, which have replaced ancient beaches that once lined the bay. The road is open to motor vehicles in both directions, with an adjacent bike path on the sea side.

  • One of the most beautiful postcard promenades in the world, the contour of the city, Vesuvius and the Ovo Castle make it unique able to withstand the passage of time. I would also add romantic, especially with evening lighting. Don't forget your camera.

  • Beautiful promenade on the promenade, we were lucky to find a nice day, and it is definitely a must during a trip to the Neapolitan city. Clean-up is also a good note. Spectacular.
