Folklore, history and mysteries: a walking tour in Spaccanapoli


A walk through Spaccanapoli street to discover Neapolitan folklore and its stunning cultural heritage. Along this road, we will visit the mysterious Church del Gesù, the elegant Church of Santa Chiara and its colourful, vivid cloister, covered with yellow, green and blue tiles, called "riggiole".
Silence, trees of oranges and ancient frescos will let us travel into the past.

We will come back to the current everyday life at San Domenico Square, to taste some of the gastronomical monuments of Neapolitan pastry: Sfogliatella and Babà. The mysterious alchemist Raimondo de Sangro Prince of Sansevero will meet us in his unmissable chapel, where there are the Veiled Christ and the macabre anatomic machines.

In San Gregorio Armeno, we will see thousands of cribs, figurines, lucky charms. After tasting the real pizza or pasta with ragù, we will visit the Cathedral and Caravaggio's Seven Works of Mercy. If you travel with your children, let me know. I will be happy to organise ludic activities for young travellers

A Recent Review of this tour

We thoroughly enjoyed our guided walking tour of Naples with Alessandra. Within 2 hours she showed us the interesting highlights of the old quarter. Her depth of knowledge about the history and culture of Naples is very impressive and she is wonderful company and very charming. She was extremely helpful with additional suggestions and tips regarding places to visit, eat and drink which added considerable value to our trip. She was very patient with our constant questions ! A first class experience.
