Naples and cycling, it hasn't been love at first sight. The Italians are used to using their beloved scooter or car as the main means of transport. In recent years, however, cycling has also become increasingly popular in Naples. The narrow alleys and roads in the city centre are difficult to reach by car, making cycling through these historic streets more and more popular. That the Italians cycle like they do in their scooter or car should come as no surprise. So keep in mind that there are a lot of ringing and chaos on the road.
There are not (yet) many cycle paths in Naples. In recent years the city has invested a lot in a beautiful route along the bay. Where this used to be a dirty, busy and noisy road, this is now a clean, wide promenade that only pedestrians and cyclists are allowed to use. This 20 km long cycle route is a must do when you visit Naples! There are plans to extend the bike paths towards the suburbs and the city centre. Cycling in Naples is really on the rise.
