Itinerary

In this walking tour we will see the monumental area and the historical center of Naples.

We will start to see the facade of the "Castel Nuovo", one of the 5 castles in Naples, built in Norman period.

We will move to "Piazza del Plebiscito" to admire the facade of the Royal Palace, restored in the Bourbons time by the architect Vanvitelli.

Not far from the Royal Palace I'll show you a great view of the Bay of Naples, with islands, volcano and castle!

After that we'll walk through the Gallery of Savoy time built in iron and glass in neoclassical style.

In the historical center we will admire the different architectonic styles of churches and building from X to XVII centuries.

If we have time we can decide to visit the Museum of Cappella San Severo that conserve an outstanding statue in marble of the "Veiled Christ" or we can also continue to the characteristic street San Gregorio Armeno, where craftsmen produce terracotta shepards for the famous neapolitan nativity scenes.

A Recent Review of this tour

Roberto was a most informative and friendly guide. It was exactly what we wanted. We were interested in the history and archeology of Naples and that's precisely what we were given. A day in Naples is clearly nowhere near enough time to explore this interesting city.
