It was a beautiful experience we saw many landscapes from the historic center to the panoramic tour. I had this experience with my 14 and 12 year old children and they had a lot of fun, the guide is very prepared and Naples by bike is an experience that I recommend to everyone. Franca

Wonderful bike ride! It's a trip through the city, Giuseppe our guide is the perfect person to discover Naples! This city has no secrets for him. After this delicious moment I warmly recommend Neapolisolare and Giuseppe for your bike rides!

The tour was very good. The guide was very nice. The tour shows the most important places in Naples. The e-bikes are a bit older, but that wasn't a problem for us.

Great tour with nice photo stops. Good to get a first impression and overview.
