Naval Support Activity Naples (NSA Naples) is a United States Navy base, located at Naples Airport in Naples, Italy. It is home to U.S. Naval Forces Europe and the U.S. Sixth Fleet.


On October 3, 1951, the naval ashore unit Headquarters, Support Activities was created to support Allied Forces Southern Europe, and later the Sixth Fleet. In August, 1953, the support unit became Commander, Subordinate command, U.S. Naval Forces Eastern Atlantic / Commander, Headquarters Support Activities, and re-designated U.S. Naval Activities, Italy / U.S. Naval Support Activity, Naples in November 1957. U.S. Naval Activities, Italy was consolidated with U.S. Naval Support Activity, Naples on August 8, 1966.[1]

Naval Hospital Naples was established at Agnano in 1967, and moved to Gricignano di Aversa in April 2003.[2] In 2005, the United States Naval Forces Europe headquarters moved from London to Naples.[3] Naval Support Activity Gaeta, established in 1967, became a detachment of NSA Naples on February 10, 2006.
