Reveillere has been without a club since ending his decade-long association with Lyon in the summer, and he had been linked with the likes of Cardiff City, Queens Park Rangers and Marseille.
However, he has now secured a deal with Serie A side Napoli after Rafa Benitez had requested reinforcements to his squad following injuries to Giandomenico Mesto and Camilo Zuniga.
The 33-year-old previously played under Napoli coach Benitez at Valencia, where Reveillere spent six months before joining Lyon in 2003.
The full-back trained with Napoli on Friday morning and expressed his happiness at the deal on Twitter earlier in the day.
He wrote: "I'm really proud to be a Napoli player and thanks to president Aurelio De Laurentiis."
