Walking tour in Naples' historical centre


Walking through Naples' historical centre, we jump back to the 5th century B. C, its scattering of ancient ruins stretching back more than two millennia to Naples' Greek origins. To this day, the neighbourhood's grid echoes its original Graeco-Roman layout, made up of small alleys, decumani and cardinali, which regularly run parallel and perpendicular to each other. The 'decumano inferiore', nicknamed 'Spaccanapoli' (Split Naples) is one of the historic centre's main thoroughfares. Strolling down it is highly evocative, especially when the midday sun bathes its entire length. More than just a street, Spaccanapoli and its surrounds are a treasure trove of art, architecture, traditions and folklore. Along the 'decumano maggiore', one can explore the Basilica of San Lorenzo and its buried archeological ruins, which included remnants of the ancient Roman forum. Taking the metro linea1 we stop at Toledo, which has been awarded as the best underground site all over Europe and we then walk to the Monumental Area

A Recent Review of this tour

She was excellent. Went at a pace to accommodate all our needs. Got a taxi when one couple needed to return to the ship. We loved walking in and out of the streets. Enjoyed the subway comments and ride. Returned us to the ship completely
