Maison Toledo 210 is a boutique hotel in the centre of Naples, near the city's Quarteri Spagnoli (Spanish Quarter) and opposite the San Carlo opera house.
The property is set within the Galleria Umberto I, a 19th-century public shopping gallery that Lonely Planet describes as "a breathtaking pairing of richly adorned neo-Renaissance fronts and a delicate glass ceiling capped by a lofty 56m dome".
The hotel is within walking distance of some of Naples's most famous sites, including the Duomo (25 minutes' walk), the Royal Palace (10 minutes' walk) and the 13th-century Castle Nuovo (five minutes' walk). You can also join the locals for a stroll along the pedestrianised Via Caracciolo and Lungomare, Naples's seafront promenade. Take the train from Napoli Montesanto (around 15 minutes' walk from the hotel) to Napoli Mergellina, a 5-minute walk from the promenade.
"For history lovers, no trip to Naples would be complete without a trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius," says Time Out. The bus to Vesuvius takes 40 minutes from Piazza San Pasquale, a 15-minute walk from the hotel. For Pompeii, the train from Porta Nalona -- 30 minutes' walk from the hotel or 15 minutes by Metro from nearby Toledo station -- takes around 40 minutes to the archaeological site (Pompeii Scavi). Be sure to pick up a map and explanation booklet on arrival, as many of the excavations don't have signs.
Aside from its history, Naples is also well-known for its food, with Lonely Planet describing it as one of Italy's "most delicious" cities, "serving up the country's best pizza, pasta and coffee". We recommend the frittatina di pasta at Di Matteo ai Tribunali, 20 minutes' walk away.
