Naples Private Jet Charter Flights and Jet Hire Naples
Italy, more specifically Naples or Napoli – from the Greek Neapolis or “New City” – regardless of how you say it, is beautiful. Naples is the most populated city in Southern Italy and is nestled in close to the Bay of Naples and Pompeii. Vibrant, historical and artistic are used to describe the city and many travel websites feature Naples as a premier destination for vacationers. These same sites also offer some of the best vacation deals, including private jet charter flights to Napoli and inexpensive hotel deals, available. It definitely pays to do a bit of research when looking for the right travel package.
Naples is a beautiful city during the entire year. The months that feature the best weather are April through June and late September through October. These months harbor mild temperatures and generally crowds are much smaller. Because of this, airline ticket prices are lower and cheap hotel rooms are available. During the winter months from October through March, many attractions in Naples close down for renovations or are open for fewer hours during the day. From the middle of August to the end of the month, many of the locals go on holiday. During this time, it’s much harder to find hotels that are even open.
How to get there
The easiest way to get to Naples is to fly into Naples Capodichino International Airport, which lies just 4-miles from the heart of Naples. The airport handles nearly all of the international airlines and services roughly five million passengers per year. However, if you’re touring Europe, a train or car might be more your style. If you’re traveling by train, you’ll come into the central station of Naples. If you’re coming in from Rome, you’ll have the opportunity to ride on the new high-speed line that runs from Rome to Naples. If you’re traveling by auto, you’ll want to drive along highway A1 from the north. Those who are traveling from the south will want to drive up highway A3.
Where to stay
For connoisseurs of Art Nouveau architecture, the Costantinopoli 104, Santa Maria di Constantinopoli 104, is a delightful getaway nestled amongst the historical surroundings of Naples’s city center. The luxury of each room is enhanced by views of the peaceful garden and pool area. If you want to feel like royalty, but are interested in cheap hotel prices, try the Hotel Palazzo Alabardieri, Alabardieri 38. This former palace is located near the Santa Caterina a Chiaia convent and was restored by historical preservationists in 2004. When budget is not a consideration and a bay view is mandatory, the Hotel Excelsior, Partenope 48, provides luxury living and breathtaking views of the Bay of Naples.
Naples is considered by many to be the birthplace of Pizza. Because of this, one of the first things you should do is find a pizzeria that serves pizza that is truly Neapolitan. One suggestion is Pizzeria La Notizia (see below). Be cautious, though. Once you’ve experienced pizza in Naples, nothing else will do. If you enjoy history, stop by the National Archaeological Museum and enjoy one of the most amazing collections of Roman artifacts and art in the world. Mosaics and frescos are housed within the museum as well as many items taken from Herculaneum and Pompeii. Speaking of Pompeii and Herculaneum, these two spots sit near Naples and are worth taking a day to explore. Your visit to Pompeii should include a look at these ruins from antiquity and will give you a feel for what it was like to live in this part of the world thousands of years ago. Herculaneum is a much smaller site, but there are many more of the original artifacts of early Roman life that remain.
As mentioned, Neapolitan pizza is an absolute must when visiting Naples. The Pizzeria La Notizia, Michelangelo da Caravaggio 53, is one of the best places to experience this cities’ culinary invention. For unforgettable seafood, Dora, Ferdinando Palasciano 30, provides some of the freshest. The menu features a wide variety of dishes including the catch of the day, which is locally caught and undeniably fresh. For wine aficionados and gourmet offerings, La Stanza del Gusto, Constantinopoli 100, provides meals that consist of several small portions that are taken from local tradition and prepared by self-taught chef Mario Avallone.
