No visit to Italy is complete without discovering the magic and history that is hidden around every corner in Naples. This beautiful ‘city by the bay’ sits in an incredible natural context crowned by Mt. Vesuvius, continental Europe’s only active volcano, the islands of Capri and Ischia, not to mention this ancient city’s baroque domes and architecture.
You’ll start your tour at the monumental Neptune’s Fountain and after a quick walk you will be at Castel Nuovo or the ‘Maschio Angioino’, one of the most important symbols of Naples, dominating the Municipio Square, and immediately setting the tone for the tour by displaying Naples’ royal character.
Your tour continues by the San Carlo Theatre, the oldest continuously used opera house in Europe, and the iconic Umberto I shopping-gallery, an Art Deco masterpiece of iron and glass, which displays unparalleled creativity and elegance.
Then take in the beauty of the monumental Piazza del Plebiscito, with its fascinatingly domed church, before having a break to enjoy the best sfogliatella, a local pastry with delicious orange flavored ricotta cream, in town. The perfect pairing involves a cup of local coffee, and Naples is renowned for the best coffee in Italy, so you are in safe hands here!
Coffee culture is almost a religion in this part of the world and your guide will entertain you explaining all the rituals that the locals love to practice, before savoring their favorite drink. We continue our walk through the little backroads around Via Chiaia, getting a feel for the modern way of life in the city, while we mix with the locals.
Finally catching our first glimpse of the sea, we’ll walk along the pleasant lungomare promenade to reach the final highlight of the tour, Castel Dell’ Ovo. This medieval castle provides us with amazing views over the bay of Naples, Mt. Vesuvius and the famous islands of Capri and Ischia.
We end the tour on its panoramic terrace, where you have time to take in the essence of the city from above - the perfect photo opportunity to capture the beauty of Naples!
