PSG took control in the first half and were rewarded when Kylian Mbappé set up Bernat, who scored from close range as the Napoli defence was caught napping.
Insigne levelled from the spot in the 63rd minute after José Callejon pounced on a mistake by Thiago Silva and was upended in the area.
The biggest winners of the night were Club Brugge, who produced one of the shocks of the European season by winning at Monaco 4-0.
It was the Belgian club’s first win in the Champions League this season and adds to the pressure on Thierry Henry, Monaco’s manager. Henry has not won in his five games in charge, while Monaco’s overall run is now 15 games without a win.
In the other game in the group, Atlético Madrid pulled level with Borussia Dortmund on nine points after beating the German league leaders 2-0 in Spain. Saúl gave them the lead after 33 minutes and Antoine Griezmann doubled their lead 10 minutes from time.
