In Naples There are so many free things to see And experience,even if you just go into any of the public squares or plazas there Is plenty of beautiful architecture, there are places to get coffee and a pastry every 10 feet. the fishmarket in the heart of Naples is free and walking through there you will not believe the things that you will see, the Neapolitan people are so friendly, they will offer you samples, you will hear people singing.
I am from Naples but I am a dual citizen of the USA and go back to Naples every Christmas, because the summer is just too hot for me. keep this in mind: in Naples, you are on Italian time and the Italians don’t rush for any reason. So I would pick maybe one museum or one thing you really wanted to see/pay for and then relax and focus your time on seeing that, like the Naples National archaeological Museum,.
Tickets are around 20 euro, and the collections are extensive and beautiful and you can take your time..and they even have artifacts that they were recovered from Pompeii.......it has a collection of all the important time periods of Naples, it’s really gorgeous.
I would say one day per city so that you don’t have to rush and really if all you did was get a pizza in Naples and walked down to the bay of Naples and did a little sightseeing and went to the museum will have spent $30 per person and Will have had the most beautiful day of your life and you’ll be able to tell people that you ate pizza in Naples! which is like no other pizza on earth, and it is really a once-in-a-lifetime thing to do. I am so excited for you.
Also Naples can be loud and boisterous.......I like to compare it to the French quarter, (I lived there when we came to the states) meaning, safety wise, be aware of your surroundings, wear a Crossbody purse in front of you, and just do the things that you do in any big city. There’s also policemen everywhere Which I always find comforting to see, and if you get nervous at any point in time go into one of the shops and take a break.
Also, on your train ticket, the word “BIN” means the lane, or track that your train will be on..........not trash can, haha.
Another free thing: you can visit any of the churches in Rome or Naples..... they are free to go into , they just usually have a box for a two dollar donation or two euro donation, and the religious relics are like nothing ever seen they are so beautiful.
Congratulations on your trip!
With peace and love, Peyton
