Naples is one of Europe’s main cruise destinations. Ranking 5th in our overview of Europe’s busiest cruise ports, the city is heavily influenced by cruise ship travel. Avoiding crowds in Naples is relatively easy, keep an eye out for cruise ships arriving at the city center cruise terminal. Many cruise passengers will hop on a bus to Pompeii or on a boat to Capri.
Naples can be busy throughout the year. Most of the tourists will come during the summer. Because the city is so heavily influenced by cruise ship movements, the city can be overcrowded one day and more relaxed the next day. Weather remains good during many days of the year so visiting Naples in the shoulder season might be the best option.
