Seeing is believing: get the rare opportunity to glimpse the impossibly realistic marble sculpture in person.

The walk was a great way to get my bearings in Naples. Manuela my guide was very helpful in pointing out places I could visit during my stay. We must have walked round most of central Naples, with the church with the veiled Christ a particular highlight.

Wow this was the best day of my life! Laura was our guide and really went in depth on the culture and history of every where we visited. If you're looking for a day trip from rome this is it!
