Arts & Culture Events

Naples, Florida, is rated as one of the “10 great places for big-city art, with a small town feel.” It must be the aura of this tropical paradise that attracts artists and those who love art. The breathtaking natural beauty of Naples is enhanced by more than 100 galleries containing a wide variety of exceptional art, from museum-quality pieces to unique home accessories to fine works by local artists. American Style Magazine named Naples among the Top 25 Arts Destinations in the United States.

John Villani, author of The 100 Best Art Towns in America, calls Naples “a wonderful place with a great arts infrastructure.”

At the heart of the Naples arts community is the world-renowned Artis—Naples arts complex (home of the Baker Museum and the Naples Philharmonic). It provides a home for music, theater, and the new art museum with 15 exhibition galleries. For history buffs, there are several area museums offering artifacts dating back more than 1000 years and exhibits about the pioneers who settled in the Southwest Florida wilderness area in the late 1800s.

Hundreds of arts and cultural events take place in Naples every month. When you rent a private Naples Florida Vacation Home, you are right at the center of this vibrant arts community.
