Full description
This tour will let you explore the center of Naples and learn more about the largest old town of the Bay of Naples. Meet your guide at the Fontana di Nettuno at Piazza Municipio then walk to Castel Nuovo (also known as Maschio Angioino), the Bourbon King’s Square, and Piazza del Plebiscito. Here, you will be able to enjoy terrific views of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. Passing through the Royal Palace of Naples, you will continue on to the impressive Galleria Umberto and the Teatro di San Carlo. Stop at Gambrinus Café and enjoy a Caffè Napolitano, as Oscar Wilde and Jean-Paul Sartre once did.

Stroll along Via Toledo and visit the interesting Spanish Quarter. The next stop will be Piazza del Gesù, where you will see the church Gesù Nuovo and its futuristic façade. Here, you will find the entrance to the old town and Spaccanapoli, the street that divides Naples. Admire Saint Chiara Cloister and see the ancient figure of Corpo di Napoli. Relax during your second break at one of the best insider cafes in the city. Continue on to San Gregorio Armeno, where you will be able to visit the many craft shops that produce a mixture of Christian and modern nativity figures. At the end of the street, you will reach Piazza San Gaetano, the heart of the city and the entrance to underground Naples. 

At Piazza Bellini, now a popular evening meeting place for the locals, and home to many interesting cafes, see the ancient city walls of the underground city. At the end of the tour, you will pass through the old city gate Port’Alba to reach Piazza Dante. After the tour, choose what you want to do next. Visit the famous Sansevero Chapel, or the Museum in Castell Nuovo. Alternatively, you can use the time for a shopping trip along Via Toledo and the adjacent Via Chiaia, or choose to sample the culinary delights of Neapolitan cuisine instead.

We booked a 3 hour city tour and got 5 hours of guided tour (including underground) many churches and shops, unfortunately no insider tips, as we would have expected from a Neapolitan, and too little history about life in Naples.
