When your cruise ship docks at Naples port, discover old Naples on a half-day customizable shore excursion. With an expert private guide, stroll through the UNESCO-listed historical center to visit Gothic and Baroque churches; the bustling Spaccanapoli district; Christmas stall-packed Via San Gregorio Armeno; and the 13th-century Cathedral, the Duomo di San Gennaro. Absorb the buzz of this charismatic city, explore tucked-away streets, and if you wish, stop to taste local delicacies such as pastries or pizza (own expense). This private shore excursion ensures undivided attention from a personal guide.

While your cruise ship is in Naples, meet your knowledgeable guide at the port and set off on your private morning or afternoon walking tour.
Stroll to the UNESCO-listed historical center as you hear fascinating facts about Naples. Founded by the Greeks in the 4th century BC, the city is one of Europe’s oldest and was ruled by many occupiers including the Byzantines, Romans, French and Spanish, all of whom left their imprints on its architecture and culture.
After around 15 minutes, arrive in the center, where the streets are filled with historical monuments, Gothic churches and baroque palaces. As this is a private tour, let your guide know of any particular places you want to see so they can tailor your itinerary.
Visit some of the center’s churches, regarded as some of the city's greatest treasures. Your guide will suggest some of the best Gothic and baroque examples to see, such as the Church of San Lorenzo Maggiore and Church of Santa Chiara.
Stroll through Spaccanapoli, Naples' oldest district. Brim with faded buildings, artisan’s shops and pizzerias, this lively area offers a great insight into Neapolitan life. Absorb the atmosphere and hear how the Spaccanapoli thoroughfare bisects the center and follows an ancient Roman road.
Call at any cafes or pastry shops to sample any local delicacies you fancy trying (own expense) and amble down the cobbled Via San Gregorio Armeno, known for its shops selling year-round Christmas nativity decorations. Behold the mass of colorful figurines and ornaments, and head for the Cathedral, the 13th-century Duomo di San Gennaro, dedicated to Naples’ patron saint.
Marvel at the interior and Chapel di San Gennaro, where vials of the saint’s blood are kept. Hear how it’s brought out three days a year, and usually liquefies in what’s considered a good omen.
After, walk back to the port where your tour ends.
