Full description
Your expert tour guide will meet you at your hotel. On this 4.5-hour private tour, your guide will accompany you around the whole city on an original Ape Calessino to experience Naples’ most famous sights. In addition to the must-see areas, you’ll also get to explore bustling squares and small, intimate alleyways which buses can’t reach, letting you experience the city from a local’s perspective. Soak up Naples’ old world charm as you ride down Spaccanapoli and through the historic center of Naples, the largest historic center in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Your guide will point out buildings and landmarks that characterize Naples' different historical periods and interesting architectural styles. Learn the history behind each architectural gem from your guide as you go. You may also visit Cappella Sansevero, if you wish (entrance not included). Visit Borgo Marinari and Castel dell’Ovo, a stunning seaside castle perched on the Bay of Naples, and the amazing Parco Virgiliano with its terraces on the sea. Stop periodically to enjoy the views, walk around and learn some history from your guide. Relax with a cup of coffee and a traditional Italian cake (included) at the most exclusive and historical Grand Cafè of Napoli, the Gambrinus, ancient destination of famous poets and writers. 

Pass Via Petrarca offering beautiful views from the hill of Posillipo and then continue seeing other Naples sights including the alley dedicated to the nativity scenes on Via San Gregorio Armeno and the famous Spaccanapoli (the street that cuts Naples perfectly into two parts). Some of the many piazzas you’ll explore are Piazza del Gesù Nuovo, Piazza San Domenico Maggiore, Piazza San Gaetano, Piazza Municipio, Piazza Trieste e Trento and Piazza del Plebiscito, where you will find Palazzo Reale. This Naples Ape Calessino Tour will give you an intimate experience of this wonderful Italian city. After 4.5-hours of sightseeing, conclude your tour with a drop-off at your hotel. Enjoy a small Neapolitan souvenir from your guide to bring back home with you.
