Suggestions for family activities in Naples, including museums and outdoor activities.

In Naples there are many ways to spend a pleasant time: museums, outdoor trips and wonderful corners to discover. Below you will find some suggestions for having fun with your family, which will surely be appreciated by the little ones. 

Naples Zoo

Among the family things to do in Naples, you can't miss a visit to the Zoo. After the difficult situation of the 80s, today the Zoo of Naples has been redeveloped and many new areas dedicated to animals and educational areas especially designed for children have been created. Animals are divided by habitat and it is possible to observe a large number of species. Children also have the possibility to interact with the animals in the so-called "educational farm".  

There are also relaxation areas, refreshment points and carousels, together with workshops and paths specifically designed for children.

Città della Scienza

In "Città della Scienza" there are various activities for the most diverse public. For families there are real interactive museums such as Corporea - the first in Europe - to discover the human body, or the 3D Planetarium, to study the stars and mysteries of the universe. 

The beautiful location, close to the sea, can also be used by families to organize real "science parties", birthday parties and themed entertainment.

Botanical Garden Naples

A visit to the Botanical Garden is certainly on the list of things to do with your family in Naples. Founded at the beginning of the 19th century, it has kept its magnificent collection of plants ever since.

In the magnificent spaces of the Royal Botanical Garden, there are many activities dedicated to children, with creative and educational workshops. During the spring period there is the Spring Fairy Tales event, which aims to involve children in the stories through a theatricalisation of the stories.

The Botanical Garden also organizes guided tours from March to May - reservations are open from January. The visits, completely free of charge, are directed to students of all levels.

Villa Floridiana

Villa Floridiana is a park located in the Vomero district, from which you can enjoy a beautiful view of the gulf. 

Inside the park, with free access, there are carousels for children and small lakes with turtles and goldfish. 

During the summer season, sports events are often organized, or yoga sessions on the lawns of the park, in which it is often possible to participate in a totally free way. 

MADRE Museum

The Donnaregina Museum of Contemporary Art organizes a nice cultural activity for families.

Every last Sunday of the month, in fact, the Educational Services of the museum propose the free educational workshop Families at the MADRE, dedicated to children and their parents, who will experience together the relationship work/matter/color imagining new possible narratives of the artwork. The aim is to bring families and young people closer to the world of art.
