Description

Meet your guide and discover Naples on a walking tour from the cruise terminal or your hotel in town. Naples Old Town is an amazing crossroad of people and history. It was founded by the Greeks and then ruled by many different nations – Romans, Byzantine, Germans, Normans, French, Spanish and Austrians. Each of those left an indelible sign of their presence not only in the buildings and monuments of the city but also in its language, customs, traditions, food, way of life.

Your private guide will be there to point you out to the major historical information but also to introduce you to taste some of the local delicacies.

This private walking tour is available from the cruise terminal as a shore excursion, or either from your centrally located hotel in Naples or Naples railway station.
The history of Naples is perfectly legible in its urban structure, which maintains the signs of a city built slowly over a period of 25 centuries: this is the reason why the town is amongst the World Cultural Heritage Sites listed by the United Nations.

Once in the Old Naples there are plenty of things to visit or to do according to your interests and feelings. You shall certainly enter with your private guide the unique San Severo Chapel, an intact 18th century family chapel which hides several secrets.

You will find many great examples of gothic and baroque architecture mixed up with the houses of the ordinary people.

Your private excursion will bring you to the area called ‘Spaccanapoli’. You will discover the real town: its people, the students, the food (the best pizzerias and pastry shops are there), the craftsmanship. Not to miss is the area of San Gregorio where you have an incredible display of items produced to decorate the Nativity during Christmas Time.

If you would like to, you will also reach the Cathedral to marvel at the richness of its baroque decoration. In the Cathedral you can visit San Gennaro Chapel, worldwide known not only for Art but also because there the Saint Protector of the City liquefies its blood twice a year!
