Let's Have a Walk Through Nine Centuries of Masterpieces


Not everybody knows that Napoli has one of the largest monumental concentrations in the whole world.

Over the last nine centuries Normans, Svevians, Angevins, Aragons, Ausburgs, Bourbons, Savoy ruled this wonderful city, leaving their personal cultural mark.

Almost all the greatest Italian artists had been here at least one time working for some royal family.

Monuments, noble's residences, royal palaces and over 300 churches were built across the centuries, making Napoli one of the most amazing capitals of art.

My unconventional tour means walking through thousands of years of Art and to join some of the greatest Italian artists like Caravaggio, Masaccio, Raffaello, Giotto; also Greek and Roman art, but not following the massive touristic itineraries.

NOTE: This is a normally a walking /by taxi tour. In case you want private transport as well, please message me for a customized offer

Itinerary

The tour goes through the highlights of Napoli and its two thousand years of history and art masterpieces.

Starting from the Monumental district, where you will admire one of the four Royal Palaces of Napoli, the so-called New Castle, built in 1279, the art nouveau style Gallery Umberto I, and the Royal opera house San Carlo Theatre, the oldest in Europe, we go to the Greek and Roman district, where we have two thousand years of art stratification.

That is the place where you will have the real essence of Napoli. The Seven Works of Mercy, a masterpiece of Caravaggio painted in 1607 or the Veiled Christ, a marble statue sculpted in 1753, will take your breath away.

The "Majolica Cloister" from the Monastery of Santa Chiara, the 14th frescoes of Giotto or the street art of Banksy is the most amazing contradiction. And that will be just the beginning.

Nearby the Greek and Roman district there is the National Archaeological Museum of Naples, the most important museum of classical archaeology in Italy.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our family (2 parents and 3 adult kids) very much enjoyed our tour of Naples with Marcello. There was so much to cover as we'd never visited Naples. Marcello really knows his stuff and made our tour fun and interesting. We visited the Centro Storico, saw some of the main piazzas, churches (from the outside) and learnt about the long history of Naples. I highly recommend Marcello!
