According to Travelinmad, “the 130-year old Naples Pier has been beloved by generations, and recently got a facelift in 2017 with new planking, rails, and lighting. After all these years, the Naples Fishing Pier is still the best place in town for a casual stroll or to catch sunset. The historic Palm Cottage, Naples oldest surviving home, is open Tuesday – Saturday for docent-guided tours and self-guided tours of the outdoor Norris Gardens.”
