Naples: Old Town and Veiled Christ Tour

1. Naples: Old Town and Veiled Christ Tour

Explore one of the oldest cities in Europe with your guide and cross the heart of the historic center of Naples from Piazza Bellini, where you still find visible portions of Greek walls. Skirt the Conservatory of Naples, with the chance to hear the rehearsals of young Neapolitan musicians. Continue to Via dei Tribunali, the Decumano Maggiore of ancient Neapolis, but also one of the liveliest and richest streets in Naples.  See the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore alla Pietrasanta, with its ancient Romanesque bell tower, and the mysterious church of Santa Maria delle Anime del Purgatorio ad Arco. The Basilica of San Lorenzo Maggiore, an Angevin jewel, and the Duomo, which preserves the miraculous holy blood di San Gennar, beloved patron Saint of the city, will be waiting for you a few steps away. Back to Spaccanapoli, the lower decumanus, you will stroll through the teeming and characteristic Neapolitan shops. Discover the wonderful Basilica of San Domenico Maggiore, with its square of the same name that makes the scenery unique. The last stop will be the precious Sansevero Chapel: the vision of the Veiled Christ, together with the story of your guide, will be a unique and unforgettable experience.

I had always wanted to tick off one thing from my bucket list and that was ride a Vespa in the city of Naples. NapolinVespa Tour made this happen and they pulled it off effortlessly. Vincenzo was my guide and what can I say? He made it very personable! We soaked in the city discussing culture, history and how these aspects shaped the city... I recommend you take this excursion if you are serious and willing to learn! The Vespa itself was beautiful and I managed to get the typical postcard picture of myself with the beautiful vista of Naples behind me.. I recommend that you don't hesitate and book this. It will be very memorable...

Just a brilliant vespa tour of Naples with lovely friendly guides.

Our guided tour has been such good fun! Our friendly guides met us at the hotel then took us on a great tour of lots of different parts of the city - all from the back of our vespas. We saw so much and really enjoyed being able to chat and also stop off for a superb coffee along the way. We visited some of the most famous sights but also had time to wander through the little alleys and side streets and see areas outside the city centre. Great!
