DAY 2

11:00 Join the locals for a Sunday stroll along the seafront at Via Caracciolo, a picturesque pedestrianised street beginning at Santa Lucia and ending at Mergellina.

With the fresh sea breeze, the sun on your skin, and the sight of couples linked arm in arm, slurping on sweet gelato, there’s really no better way to start the day.

13:00 Wander into Galleria Umberto, opposite the Teatro di San Carlo, to see one of the grandest interiors in all of Italy. Near-doppelganger of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan, its glass-roofed arcade and mosaic floor are the height of 18th-century style.

15:00 Renowned chocolatier Gay-Odin serves up the best sinful treats in all of Naples. Don’t be deterred by the line out the door – the service is quick and the mind-blowing chocolate is definitely worth the wait. Gay-odin also does a delicious line in gelato.

16:00 The small port of Borgo Marinaro is where the Greeks first settled the city in the 7th century BC. It’s an idyllic setting in which to unwind with a cocktail or glass of wine, as you watch the bobbing boats in the ocean near majestic 11th-century castle Castel dell’Ovo, Naples’ oldest.

Legend has it that Borgo Marinaro is where the siren Partenope washed up on the shore after failing to woo Ulysses with her song.

18:00 Enjoy fresh seafood on the beachfront at Ciro al Borgo Marinaro where, although not cheap, service is faultless and the ocean view spectacular.

21:00 End your weekend by toasting the city with its cheapest glass (well, plastic cup) of wine, found at A Pigna d’Uvao (Vico Lungo Teatro Nuovo 31). Don’t expect to pay more than £1 for a cup. 

Fly direct from London to Naples from about £209 return with easyjet
