A tour in the biggest historical center of Europe


Visiting Naples's historic center means traveling through twenty centuries of history. The design of its streets, piazzas, churches, monuments and public buildings and castles constitute a jewel box of artistic and historical treasures of exceptional importance, so much so that together, they earned their spot on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1995.
Extending over 720 hectares, the historic center of Naples is the largest historic center in all of Europe, and includes testimonies from diverse styles and periods - from its foundation in the 8th Century B. C. as the Greek colony Neapolis, to its subsequent domination by the Romans, and from the Swabian-Norman era to the Reign of the Anjous, and finally from its time under the Aragonese Empire, the Kings of France, to the period of Unification under Garibaldi and the resulting Kingdom of Italy.
We will walk "around the century" because Naples is all of that, a city of diverse experiences.

Itinerary

This tour starts from Piazza del Gesù, one of the most central and beautiful squares of Naples.
We will visit the cloister and the astonishing Church of Santa Chiara.
After walking down the famous street of Spaccanapoli we will reach Piazza San Domenico where you will taste Naples' typical pastry, the sfogliatella, with a legendary espresso (Naples is the best known Italian city for coffee).
After the visit of San Severo Chapel and the astonishing Veiled Christ, we will then reach the Cathedral and the Chapel of the Treasury that contains the holy blood of San Gennaro, the patron saint of the city of Naples.
