Meet your guide and discover Naples on a walking tour from the cruise terminal or your hotel in town. Naples is one of the oldest cities in Europe. It was founded by the Greeks and then ruled by many different nations – Romans, Byzantines, Germans, Normans, French, Spanish and Austrians. Each of those left an indelible sign of their presence not only in the buildings and monuments of the city but also in its language, customs, traditions, food, way of life. What a patchwork…

This private walking Tour is available from the Cruise Terminal as a Shore Excursion,
From your hotel centrally located in Naples or from the railway station if you come from Rome or Sorrento by train. The itinerary will adapt accordingly.
The history of Naples is perfectly legible in its urban structure, which maintains the signs of a city built slowly over a period of 25 centuries: this is the reason why the town is amongst the World Cultural Heritage Sites listed by the United Nations.
General Flow of the day
Once in the Old Naples there are plenty of things to visit or to do according to your interests and feelings. You shall certainly enter some of its beautiful but sometime hidden churches – in Naples like in Rome as many as you like!
You will find great examples of gothic and baroque architecture mixed up with the houses of the ordinary people.
Your private Naples Excursion will bring you to the area called ‘Spaccanapoli’. You will discover the real town: its people, the students, the food (the best pizzerias and pastry shops are there), the craftsmanship. Not to miss is the area of San Gregorio where you have an incredible display of items produced to decorate the Nativity during Christmas Time.
If you like you will also reach the Cathedral to marvel at the richness of its baroque decoration. In the Cathedral you can visit San Gennaro Chaple, worldwide known not only for Art but also because there the Saint Protector of the City liquefies its blood twice a year!!
At the end of the tour you can decide to stay on own in town for a traditional pizza lunch or to go back to the beginning.
