The international airport at Naples, Italy is a convenient and easy way to reach Naples, Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast and other top travel destinations in Campania and southern Italy.

With a view of the towering peak and slopes of Mt. Vesuvius, the colorful buildings and that mesmerizing blue of the sea, it's hard not to be enchanted by Naples before you even arrive! When arriving on a flight to Naples, try to book a window seat so you can enjoy the beautiful views.

The Naples International Airport, often simply referred to as Capodichino after the district where it's located, is only 6 KM northwest of the city center. This means that many landing paths on flights to Naples pass very near the center of the city with great views of the centro storico with its distinctive glass domed roof of the Galleria Umberto I, the soaring roof of Santa Chiara and even large cruise boats docked in the Naples port. You might even spot Castel Sant'Elmo and the beautiful Certosa di San Martino high atop Naples in the Vomero district.
