We will reach the top of the peninsula of Posilllipo; we are on the north-west end of the gulf of Naples.

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 discover on foot the area of the Royal Palace, to see the San Carlo Opera HouseThe 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, the area listed by the United Nations. You can explore Spaccanapoli and the little tiny roads dating back to the Greek and Roman time. You can visit some of its precious churches, or simply observe how life still goes on after 2500 years of continous life!

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.
