What to expect

You’ll start your tour at the monumental Neptune’s Fountain, you'll then walk to Castel Nuovo or the ‘Maschio Angioino’, one of the most important symbols of Naples, dominating the Municipio Square, and immediately set the tone for the tour by displaying Naples’ royal character.

Your walk 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.

You'll then take a look at 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.

You'll continue through the little backroads around Via Chiaia, getting a feel for the modern way of life in the city, while you'll mix with the locals. Finally, catching your first glimpse of the sea, you’ll walk along the pleasant lungomare promenade to reach the final highlight of the tour, Castel Dell’ Ovo. This medieval castle provides you with amazing views over the bay of Naples, Mt. Vesuvius and the famous islands of Capri and Ischia.

After some free time to relax or enjoy a delicious local meal by the seaside, you'll take a guided tour of the magnific Archaeologicalical Museum in Naples, considered one of the most important classical museums in the world, particularly for its rich collection of Roman art. The Farnese collection, coming from Rome itself, displays an impressive range of marbles and Roman statues, such as the famous Hercules and the Farnese Bull. The mosaics are the other highlight of the museum: recovered from Pompeii and the neighbouring towns, they show the extraordinary skills that the artist developed with this technique, giving you invaluable insights not only into crucial historical events, but also into everyday life and entertainment at the time.
