Discovering the legends of fantastic Neapolitan beasts, ghosts and night movida


There are ghost stories behind almost every Neapolitan palace. They talk about some typical mysterious creatures like "Munaciello" or "Bella m'Briana", who are used to play tricks or bring gifts and money to the people who live in "their" flat. All depends on people's trust.
Based on these legends, the Neapolitan dramatist Eduardo de Filippo wrote one of his best plays "Questi Fantasmi" (These Ghosts), in which a naive dupe is cheated by a cunny scoundrel.

This walking tour will start from Piazza del Gesù.
Here we will listen to the esoteric music hidden under the strange symbols on the stone blocks used to build the wall of the Church del Gesù.

Then we will reach Piazza San Domenico. Here two protagonists of Neapolitan history will be introduced: the alchemist Raimondo de Sangro Prince of Sansevero and the unlucky ghost of Maria d'Avalos.
Sirens and vampires will be the other fantastic creatures we will meet.

We can calm our fear with a drink or a coffee in Piazza Bellini, the centre of the night movida
