Full description
Start your tour at the entrance to the Cathedral of Naples. Discover a prime example of Neapolitan Gothic and Baroque architecture, which houses the relic of the Blood of San Gennaro, the patron saint of the city. 

Explore some of the oldest streets of Naples and make your way to the archaeological area of Carminiello and Mannesi. Learn about the ancient ruins discovered in the area after a bombing raid in 1943. Continue to the basilica church of San Giorgio Maggiore, which has a history dating back to the 4th century AD. See evidence of its early-Christian origins, such as the ancient apse that later became the entrance of the current church. 

Make your way along Via San Biagio Dei Librai, colloquially known as "Spaccanapoli." Take in the scents, colors, and sounds of the long narrow street that runs through the heart of the historic center of Naples. On Via San Gregorio Armeno, the historic site of the craft workshops of the city, enjoy a short coffee break in one of the most famous bars in the area. See a lock of hair of Diego Maradona, an icon of Napoli's football team.

Next, see the Nile God Statue located in Piazza Nilo, which is dated from the 2nd or 3rd century AD. Arrive at the scenic Piazza San Domenico Maggiore, named after the Dominican Basilica that surrounds it. Discover one of the most beautiful and largest churches in Naples, which remains a reference point for the chronological, political, and artistic history of the city. Last stop will be at Sansevero Chapel, which houses one of the most remarkable sculptures in the world, the Veiled Christ. Admire the stunning intricate detail of this marble sculpture created by Giussepe Sanmartino in 1753 to finish your tour of Naples.
