Enjoy a half day private excursion to the exciting city of Naples, the biggest and most important city in Southern Italy. Together with a driver-guide you will explore this fascinating city filled with a long history and bustling with lively locals.
Begin at the top of Posillipo Hill from where you can enjoy one of the most spectacular views over the Gulf of Naples and the ever-impressive volcano Vesuvio. Descending now towards the port of Mergellina and following the coastal road, you will arrive in the ancient fishing quarter of Santa Lucia. You will also be able to see the impressive Castel Dell’Ovo, the oldest castle in Naples and one of the most famous standing attractions in the gulf.
The tour will continue toward the historical centre of the city. You arrive at the Piazza Del Plebiscito where you will be able to see the Royal Palace, a grand structure that was once the residence of the Bourbon Kings. Nearby is the San Carlo Opera House, considered the oldest continuously active theatre in Europe since it was opened to the public in 1737. The Gallery of Umberto I, just across from the opera house, is a large shopping gallery with beautiful high glass vaulted ceilings and many shops and cafes.
The tour will also show you the Basilica of San Francesco Di Paola, an imposing circular church that is reminiscent of the Pantheon in Rome, and the proud Maschio Angioino (also known as Castel Nuovo), a large medieval castle located in front of Piazza Municipio and Naple’s city hall.
After the tour ends, you will have free time for lunch and shopping or to explore the city at your own pace. Meet your driver at the end to return to your accommodations.
