Grand Hotel Vesuvio
Those with lofty aspirations should head to one of Naples’ finest places to bunk, Hotel Vesuvio. The rooftop bar has one of the finest panoramic views in Naples and an excellent aperitivo. Look down at the marina, Circolo del Remo e della Vela Italiana, and you may well spot an Omega or a William Fife, the smartest yachts on the sea.

Naples has a good range of ever-changing Airbnb options that occasionally include some genuinely unique places to stay, including a miniature castellated tower overlooking the bay to Vesuvius. If you’re only staying a couple of days, then a B&B like Casa D’Anna is perfect. Located in Sanità, a tough but tasty area of Naples, close to the Madre gallery, it is run by three partners and is both beautiful and personal.
