Full description
San Gennaro is the patron saint of Naples, a christian bishop and martyr. His worship is very much felt among the inhabitants of Naples who often entrust to him his prayers calling him, in confidence, Genna', Gennari' or Yellow Face, because of the color of the statues depicting him. On this tour learn more about this saint and what he means to the city of Naples.

Admire the Cathedral dedicated to the Saint and his immense treasure kept in the adjacent museum. Among the most precious pieces is a miter (bishop's headgear) of 1713 of the goldsmith Matteo Treglia.

The second part of the itinerary is dedicated to the discovery of another treasure of Naples: the art of building nativity scenes for Christmas. Walk along San Gregorio Armeno, the ancient and famous street of Neapolitan handmade art, visiting the Ferrigno workshop, the most famous among artisans. Soak up a bit of Christmas atmosphere, long before the season starts!
