Naples is a small town in Ontario County, about 50 miles south of the City of Rochester. It was part of the Phelps and Gorham Purchase and was established in 1789. Its original name was "Watkinstown," after Revolutionary War hero and early settler Captain Nathan Watkins. It adopted its current name in 1792. In 1815 part of the town broke off to form the Town of Italy, followed by the Town of Springwater in 1816. Both are in Yates County.
Grapes were first planted in Naples in 1860, leading to the town's current grape and wine industry. The Naples Grape Festival is held annually in September.
The overall area is known as Naples Valley. Canandaigua Lake is nearby.
The town also contains the Village of Naples.
