Your biggest problem when visiting Naples is not what to see, but what not to see. There are just too many choices. Naples and the region around it have long been a center of civilization for the Italian peninsula. Until the Romans built Ostia, Naples was the port for international shipping and arrivals. The area surrounding Naples was a vacation spot for wealthy Romans. On the island of Capri Roman Emperor Tiberius built his massive vacation villa with an amazing view of the bay. Beginning in the late 1st millenium AD the small port of Amalfi and surrounding towns became one of the great maritime republics of the Medieval era. And of course, behind the huge bay is the iconic Mount Vesuvius, which has scarred the history of the region and created two of the great tourist attractions of Europe, Pompeii and the lesser known but equally impressive Herculaneum. On the other side of the Bay of Naples is beautiful Sorrento with steep hilly avenues, rich palaces and welcoming squares.

Naples itself is an UNESCO World Heritage site with a wide variety of seaside fortresses, massive squares and historic churches and palaces. Lesser known regional attractions are the island of Ischia, famous for it's thermal baths, beautiful Salerno which developed the first important European medical school; and Paestum, the site of several impressive Greek temples from the era before the Romans dominated the Mediterranean.

How Far?

Taxis in Italy are expensive so you are often better off booking excursions with your cruise line or pre-arranging tours with tour companies.  If you like to live as the locals do, then the local bus service is convenient and inexpensive.  It is not recommended that you rent a car!  The Amalfi road is incredibly scenic but also scary.  It would be a shame to miss it focusing on the traffic.
