Lonely Planet review

Once home to the area's fishing fleet, Mergellina's marina is now a crowd-pulling combo of anchored yachts and kitsch Neapolitan chalets, neon-lit seaside gelaterie and bars. Pick up an ice-cream brioche at Chalet Ciro Mergellina and soak up the postcard view of the castello (castle) and volcano.

From here, opt for a lazy passeggiata (stroll) eastward along the car-free lungomare (seafront), or, if you don't mind the incline, head southwest along Via Posillipo for enchanting vistas of the bay, the city and lushly gardened villas.
