Begin your in-depth tour in central Naples, near the vibrant hub of Piazza Trieste e Trento. From here, set off on foot with your private historian guide to explore the picturesque waterfront area. Listen as your guide recounts the history of the city and region, explaining how this city has changed throughout the ages. Feel free to engage with your guide and ask questions; as this is a private tour, you will enjoy their undivided attention, as well as a flexible itinerary.

Start at Castel Nuovo, a dramatic 13th-century seaside fortress that is now home to a civic museum. Head inside with your guide to see its impressive collection of frescoes and sculptures. Then, explore the surrounding area, which was once home to an important commercial port.

Moving along the scenic coast, marvel at the imposing Castel dell’Ovo, Naples’ oldest castle, a unique building that has served many functions, including that of a prison under Norman rule. As you stroll along the waterfront, pause to admire the pleasant scenery. This area offers panoramic views across the Bay of Naples.
Next, pay a visit to the majestic Royal Palace of Naples, home to lavish royal apartments and the national library.

Depending on your personal preferences, you may then choose to follow your guide inland to the narrow alleys of the Spanish Quarter (Quartieri Spagnoli) to visit the charming Baroque church of Santa Maria degli Angeli and the 18th-century Palazzo Serra di Cassano.

After around four hours of sightseeing, exploring and learning, wrap up the tour back at Piazza Trieste e Trento.
