Why Naples San Carlo Opera?
When you think of a Sorrento or Amalfi holiday, you are likely to overlook Naples and this is a shame. Naples boasts some wonderful sites but also the stunningly beautiful Teatro San Carlo Opera House. With the exception of August, you can enjoy either the opera or ballet every month of the year, whether you are looking at popular well-loved classics, or more opera connoisseur options. Sometimes the venue is half of the experience and with Teatro San Carlo, this is certainly true!
What to do on your Naples Opera Breaks
Naples is a rich city with plenty to keep you busy for at least a few days and even when you have a break from sightseeing, you still have the incredible views over the harbour to entertain you.

You also have the option of Palazzo Reale and two Castles; Castel dell’Ovo and Castel Nuovo, both of which are on the harbour front and close to your hotel and San Carlo Opera house.
Then you still have Gallerio Umberto I and various churches and the Duomo to explore, all within an easy walking distance of your hotel.
