Review: City Passes of Naples

Naples has a number of different city passes and tourist cards. Some of these discount cards really save you money and, above all, a lot of unnecessary waiting times, such as the Naples City Card and Pompeii & Vesuvius Pass. We list the advantages and disadvantages of all travel cards for you, so that you can consider which Naples city pass is most suitable for you.

1) Naples City Card

The Naples City Card is one of the only two interesting city cards in Naples, as this low-cost Naples City Card grants access to three popular activities. This card gives you access to the Pompeii excavations, the National Archaeological Museum of Naples and an underground tour of Napoli Sotterranea. You can book your Naples City Card on this website. During the booking process, you can conveniently reserve your desired dates and time slots for the various activities. After payment, you will receive your tickets by email or you can show them via smartphone.

This Naples City Card includes some of the main attractions:

  • Reserved entrance Pompeii
  • Guided tour of Naples Underground (Napoli Sotterranea)
  • Entrance to the National Archaeological Museum of Naples
  • App with audio guide for a city tour in Naples
  • 10% discount on various attractions and excursions
  • Info and bookings of Naples City Card

2) Pompeii & Vesuvius Pass

Are you planning to visit both Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii? Then this combination pass is an absolute must, as this ticket has reserved access for both Mount Vesuvius and the excavations of Pompeii. Also included is a bus ticket for the Vesuvio Express from train station 'Ercolano'. Because Mount Vesuvius works with time locks, we recommend that you first visit Vesuvius in the morning and Pompeii in the afternoon (but Pompeii can also be visited on another day). Book your Pompeii & Vesuvius Pass on this website. During the booking process, you can conveniently reserve your desired dates and time slots for the various activities. After payment, you will receive your tickets by email or you can show them via smartphone.

This Pompeii & Vesuvius Pass includes:

For a successful day trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius, you only need to buy train tickets for the Circumvesuviana trains to Sorrento. You can easily buy these train tickets at the stations. The 'Ercolano' stop for the Vesuvio Express and the 'Pompeii Scavi' stop are both on the same line. A return ticket will cost around 6 euros. More info about accessibility Mount Vesuvius or Pompeii.

3) The Naples Pass

The Naples Pass is a city card that gives you access to a number of attractions for 3 days. Disadvantage of the Naples City Pass is that real top attractions are missing from this city pass, that you still have to exchange the card for a physical card and have to make reservations by phone at some attractions. This card is only interesting if you are going to stay in Naples (Napoli) for a longer period, otherwise we recommend the above two passes. Book your Naples Pass here.

This Naples City Pass includes the following sights:

  • Reserved access Bourbon Tunnel (Galleria Borbonica)
  • Entrance Catacombs of San Gennaro
  • Access to the Complex of San Lorenzo Maggiore and the underground Neapolis Sotterrata
  • Entrance Museum of the Treasure of San Gennaro at the cathedral
  • Access Museo Civico Filangieri and MuseoDivino
  • 1 hour e-bike rental
  • More info and bookings of Naples Pass

4) Single tickets

Sometimes it is cheaper to purchase individual tickets. In any case, we recommend that you book your tickets for Mount Vesuvius and Naples Underground (Napoli Sotterranea) in advance, as popular timeslots sell out quickly.
