Full description
As soon as you set foot in Naples, you’ll feel inside an Italian dream. The authenticity of the culture can be found all over its buildings, streets, and people. Get ready to discover the best highlights the city has to offer, as well as its unique hidden gems. Your local host can even customize this tour to your wishes. Start with the Queen Margherita of Savoy challenge, put on a blindfold and try to cross Piazza del Plebiscito in a straight line while passing between two statues. There’s a great story behind this challenge, and your local host will explain all about it. Step into the real Naples at the Spanish Quarter. Here is where the Italian folklore, vibrant atmosphere and buzzing local life come perfectly together. Wander through this quarter and if you are lucky, you might meet Salvatore, a local artist with a beautiful soul. Even if you don’t meet him in person, his street art is everywhere and your local host will tell you his touching story. Take a break and enjoy a delicious babà filled with rum and a coffee. Check out the classic Pignasecca market made up from streets filled with endless stalls of crafts and local products. Along the way, you will also find two unique churches with a history and a secret melody that not many know about. Palazzo Venezia Monumental cannot be missed. On the outside, a beautiful building and on the inside a treasure full of secrets, like a fantastic garden, incredible art exhibitions and a stunning townhouse in Pompeian style. If there is one thing that characterizes Naples it is its Nativity crafts. Step into a workshop and see the artisans at work, no matter the season, it is always Christmas in Naples. Then hear the story of San Gennaro, a local legend and the protector of the city, and his blood that tells the luck of the city each year. The local guides are natural storytellers, each one with a different background ranging from the arts to history. They cannot wait to share some of the most unique stories and personal anecdotes with you. The plan of the tour is as follows. Start: Begin the tour in a piazza filled with stories Stop 1: Discover a secret church Stop 2: Glorious Galleria, a building that will impress you for sure Stop 3: Experience the Spanish quarter Stop 4: Get to know a local hero and his stories Stop 5: Have a coffee break Stop 6: Vibrant local market Stop 7: Hidden garden Stop 8: Roman road and architectural details of the city Stop 9: Visit a medieval cathedral End: Receive tips for future activities you could do in Naples

    Raffaele led a practically private tour taking my mother and me to discover the treasures that a lively city like Naples can offer. The guide told everything with curiosities and anecdotes, very helpful in knowing how to guide us and give directions on how to manage the rest of the free time.

    In excellent company, you see a Naples out of the usual tour. A general overview that then allows you to discover all the most beautiful places independently.
