Come enjoy the Palace of Caserta, Pompei and Herculaneum...
Naples is the third largest urban area in Italy after Rome and Milan. The city has been inhabited since the neolithic period. It also used to be an important part of Magna Grecia and a significant cultural center under the romans. It served as capital of the Duchy of Naples (then kingdom of Naples) and eventually of the Two Sicilies until the unification of Italy in 1861.
Naples has also been considered capital of the Baroque since the revolutionary arrival of Caravaggio around the 17th century. The city was expanded by the Mussolini government but later severely damaged by various bombing during World War II. This area has experienced a significant economic growth thanks to the construction of the business district in the recent decades.
The historic city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that also includes the Palace Of Caserta and the roman ruins of Pompei and Herculaneum. A symbol of this city is represented by the Vesuvius volcano, the only volcano on the European mainland to have erupted within the last hundred years. The local cuisine is globally known for the Pizza and many other dishes. In fact Naples owns the most stars from the Michelin Guide of any Italian city.
If you ever happened to walk around the city centre you will surely have noticed how colorful this city is. Some examples of it might be areas like the Sanità District or “Quartieri Spagnoli”. You will enjoy our historical tour of many of the main highlights of the city such as Umberto I Gallery , the famous Plebiscito Square and the San Carlo Theatre, considered the oldest theatre in Europe. We will then visit San Gregorio Armeno which is a notorious street of artisans well known throughout the world for its numerous art workshops. Naples is well known for its historic castles: the most ancient Castel dell’Ovo (“Egg Castle”), the medieval and renaissance Castel Nuovo (Maschio Angioino), Castel Capuano, Castel Sant’Elmo and the Carmine Castle.
St Januarius is the patron saint of Naples well known for its treasures but mostly for the mistery surrounding the periodical liquefaction of what is claimed to be a sample of his blood kept in a sealed glass ampoule in the Cathedral.
The underground of Naples is crossed by a large network of tunnels, aqueducts and spaces excavated and used by the population for centuries until a few years after the end of the Second World War. Nowadays most of these tunnels are still open to visit.
Another main attraction of the city is the Veiled Christ, exhibited in the Cappella Sansevero and considered one of the world’s most remarkable sculptures. The original commissioner of the sculpture is said to have taught the sculptor how to transform cloth into crystalline marble. Over the years many visitors to the Cappella, amazed by the magnificent sculpture, erroneously believed it to be the result of an alchemical “marblification” performed by the prince.
The port of Naples, home of the NATO Allied Joint Force, is one of the most important in Europe and it is a crucial point if you want to visit the beautiful Islands in the bay like Capri, Ischia and Procida.
Our tours all have the defining quality of being alternative Naples tours, where you’ll be able to see and experience locations and spots that tourist normally don’t have the opportunity to visit.
