Lungomare Caracciolo, Naples

4.7
Take a walk or drive along Lungomare Caracciolo, 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.

  • The seafront is one of the most beautiful and characteristic places to walk. It is pleasant for a walk in the evening or in the morning, breathing the sea air or entering Castel dell' Ovo.  more »
  • On a sunny day it is lovely to walk along here! You can see Vesuvius across the way when the skies are clear.  more »
