What You'll do in this tour
Naples or Napoli as we know it is a former Greek trading center established around 600 BC. The city was later conquered by the ancient Romans and became the residence of several emperors and other important people during it’s history. Naples is the quintessential real-life Italy, where everything is enjoyed in all its chaotic glory. During your tour you will feel as though if you are in one of those black & white movies but you’re not. It’s a 21st century city where modern-day Neapolitans live, work and shop. The tiny streets are crowded not with tourists but with locals picking up ingredients for dinner, taking their kids too school and hanging out laundry between the buildings. This is some of what your tour guide will show you….The essence of the city is not just the history and highlights, that we will be sure to show you, but it is also the explosion of language, food, smells and customs that Naples offers. While you sample a delicious freshly baked sfogliatella or a piece of fried pizza, you will enjoy the highlights like the famous Street of Spaccanapoli, Piazza del Gesù (the symbolic historical centre of the city) and the Cloister of Santa Chiara and its church. A stop in the Cappella of Sansevero to admire the master piece of the “Cristo Velato” is a must.
Your tour will begin at your assigned meeting point and last for 7 hours. Depending on your interests we will be sure to fit in time for a nice lunch and you can feel free to discuss the options with your driver during the morning. You will not just stop in the center of Naples but you will also be taken on a beautiful scenic drive along the sea side where you will see the oldest castle of the city and the old fishing port of Santa Lucia. From there, you will arrive at the Hillside of Posillipo where you will have the chance to stop for a memorable photo overlooking the spectacular scenery above the bay of Naples and then finish the day back to the hotel. Sunny, lively and simply unforgettable, Naples is music, theatre, Vesuvius, coffee, pizza and the sea.
