Naples art and food tour: Santa Chiara, San Gregorio Armeno and Sant'Angelo a Nilo Church
- Enjoy a guided visit with an expert local guide
- Taste Neapolitan famous Pizza fritta and Pizza a portafoglio
This guided tour will lead you to discover the astonishing Santa Chiara Museum complex, Sant’Angelo a Nilo Church and San Gregorio Armeno street, famous for its beautiful Christmas figurines, all located at the heart of Naples old town.
Our guide will be waiting for you right in front of Santa Chiara entrance, where the famous Spaccanapoli street begins. You will discover the largest Gothic church in the city, based on early 14th century project of King Robert the Wise and his wife Queen Sancha Majorca of the Angevin Dynasty (1266 – 1442). Just behind it, you will admire the famous cloister, adorned with hand painted Neapolitan ceramic tiles by Donato and Giuseppe Massa.
You will walk along Spaccanapoli street to reach the next stop, Piazzetta Nilo, which will be quite an interesting experience: Spaccanapoli is the ancient hearth of Naples, the decumanus inferior splitting the city in two. This narrow, colourful, noisy street is an incredible overview of what this amazing city has to offer.
Piazzetta Nilo will surprise you with its Greek charm: this little square is named after the statue of the River Nile, dating from the Hellenistic period; the marble statue was erected by the Alexandrian merchants living in the area during Roman times. It mysteriously disappeared when the Egyptian expats moved out, turning up headless in the 15th century.
Your walk along Spaccanapoli will continue until you reach Napoli’s most incredible street: Via San Gregorio Armeno. This narrow street is the undisputed world capital of the Nativity and home to the artisans and merchants who specialized in the art and craft of the Neapolitan Presepe; the street is dominated by the magnificent belltower of San Gregorio Armeno Church.
The tour cannot be concluded without tasting Napoli’s favorite street food: 'Pizza a portafoglio', a tasty tomato pizza, or Pizza 'fritta', a fried pizza dough stuffed with mozzarella, ricotta and cooked ham, which will surprise you with its softness and flavour.
