Itinerary

Your private driver-guide will meet you where requested in Naples.

Your discover of Naples will start with a pleasant drive along the Bay, reaching the top of the peninsula of Posilllipo north-west of the Bay: once home to 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!

Naples Royal City

Your private excursion will then move toward the city center. We will see 3 castles from the Middle-Ages: Castel Sant’Elmo, Castel dell’Ovo and Castel Nuovo. If you wish you can  leave the vehicle to discover on foot the area of the Royal Palace, to see the San Carlo Opera House, The Galleria and the bursting pedestrian area of Via Toledo. There are plenty of old Grand Cafés: you can taste the very famous Espresso Napoletano or the delicious “sfogliatella” pastry!

Naples Old Town

The last stop of your private tour of Naples will bring you to the Ancient Town, which is the area properly listed by the United Nations. You can explore the little tiny roads dating back to the Greek and Roman time, take chances to visit some of its precious churches, observe how life still goes on after something like 2500 years of life! If you opted also for our guided service this part of the tour will permit you to visit with your tour-guide some of the hidden pearls of Art in Naples.

Giuseppe D’Angelo is one of my favorite tour guides: 40-ish in year, a walking Wikipedia of names, dates, periods and events no matter where you are in Naples or what building you are near. He is personable, passionate, kind and considerate. He wants to maximize your touring value and show you his city. Would I book a tour again with Giuseppe? Yes of course without hesitation. Would I recommend him? Yes of course.
