Events and festivals

Maggio dei monumenti - April/May/June
Every springtime since 1994, Naples has become the stage for a series of shows and traveling cultural events. During this period, private collections and monuments that are normally closed to the public are made accessible for everyone. Each spring, the Maggio dei Monumenti event has a different main theme and depending on this theme, special itineraries shows and other artistic events are organized in the old city center and in the areas around Naples.
Festival for San Gennaro - 19 September
The celebrations for Naples’ patron saint usually begin on September 16th and continue until the Sunday after the saint’s day, which falls on September 19th. This is an ancient ritual: the first festival is thought to have been held at the end of the fourteenth century, when the blood of San Gennaro, kept by the bishop of that era, returned to a liquid state on the anniversary of the Saint’s martyrdom: September 19th. Since then, Naples commemorates the miracle with a fascinating religious procession, with rose petals and silver statues of saints and with more pagan celebrations that involve the whole city.

Popular things to do and see and unmissable experiences

Naples is an underrated gem of a city. Its UNESCO-protected centro storico boasts some of Italy’s most incredible architecture including the stately San Carlo, one of Italy’s finest opera houses. Over on the island of Capri, the Blue Grotto is one of the most enchanting sights to behold. Head over there on a boat and watch as sunlight peeps through the rocks and illuminates this stunning sea cave.

What our customers say

I didn't know where to start with booking our first holiday to Disneyland and Andrea was just amazing and nothing was too much trouble! For a few weeks I was asking that many questions she always got back to me the same day with all the answers.and she got us the perfect holiday. We don't go till next year but she is still going to help me with information. Would definitely recommend and book again with Andrea. I have been into big travel agents before and have found them quite unhelpful. Thank you again Andrea for all your help. Anna L
