It was a beautiful and interesting experience from all points of view. Thanks to our friendly and very prepared guide Alessandra, we got to know the sacred, the profane, the traditions, and superstitions, the customs of Naples and the Neapolitans. Visited the main streets of the center and finally, San Gennaro and the Veiled Christ. Without this tour done at the beginning of our vacation, we would not have been able to appreciate and know Naples so well. A greeting and thanks from the province of Como
