Flow of the day – sightseeing driving tour
This private tour is organised around three main themes: views, old town, modern Naples.
Your discover of Naples will start with some driving along the bay, reaching the top of the peninsula of Posilllipo north-west of the Bay: once home of the wealthy Romans, today it still is the most expensive place to live in town. If you wish you can take chances to get off the car and admire the views; on the left the bay of Naples, mount Vesuvius, Sorrento and Capri; to the right the islands of Procida and Ischia, the bay of Pozzuoli and its many volcanoes. Astonishing!

If you wish you can leave the vehicle to walk around the area of the Royal Palace, to see the San Carlo Opera House, The Galleria and the bursting pedestrian Via Toledo. There are plenty of old Grand Cafés if you like to taste the very famous Espresso Napoletano or the delicious “sfogliatella” pastry!
