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.

It was a great experience. Together with my family we were guided through the historic center of Naples by Raffaele Romano, a professional like few others, very well prepared on the whole history of Naples. At the beginning of the tour they immediately understood that we were lucky to find a tour guide like Raffaele who, with his passion for his work, explained to us in detail all the anecdotes related to the alleys and alleys of the city. The tour then ended in the best possible way, in the Chapel of San Severo with the vision of one of the most beautiful, evocative and incredible works of art in the world, the Veiled Christ.

Hello, I would not like to make a disgrace to the other guides that I have not had the opportunity to know .. but I can only point out Livio! Thanks Livio for the wonderful Sunday afternoon (not from the meteorological point of view) that you passed on to me and my family. With your wise lightness in describing Naples, you made us love it right away. Thanks again. Giorgio M.
