A 3-hour walk through the old town center of the main city of Southern Italy
Naples is a brilliant city on Italy's southwest coast. With this half day tour we will be able to see the best of the old town center, walking through its streets and alleys.
You will admire a unique city with its mix of different cultures and architectural styles, with many elegant 18th-century palaces, castles and wonderful churches.
The city was settled down by the Ancient Greeks; once, it was also the capital of Southern Italy. Throughout the centuries Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Swabians and Spanish Bourbons also settled here.
For these reasons, lots of history and traditions are condensed in this old city, where Neapolitans live since the VI century BC.

I was traveling with my mother, my aunt and a family friend and we had a couple hours to kill before I train in Naples. I connected with Anna and set up a tour to have pizza and the highlights of Naples and it was a wonderful tour with her driver.
