1. Naples: Downtown Tour and Veiled Christ Entry

Naples is a mixture of colors and perfumes, be enchanted by the warmth of its people and the sounds of daily life. Begin at Piazza Bellini to see the remains of ancient Greek walls. Continue to Piazza del Gesù, one of the most famous squares of the city a few steps away from the historical center. Visit Spaccanapoli, a long and narrow street that divides the old Naples in two perfect halves with shops, restaurants and alleys. Be amazed by the San Domenico Maggiore square with a perfect overlapping of different architectural styles and the pearl of Naples, the Chapel San Severo featuring the statue Cristo Velato by Giuseppe Sanmartino. See the famous statue of the God of Nile river, Piazza St. Gaetano, and the churches of Naples, San Lorenzo and San Paolo Maggiore. The baroque cathedral of Saint Gennaro dates back to the 13th century and is at the heart of the Neapolitan faith. Here the blood of the saint patron St. Gennaro is preserved.

What people are saying about Sansevero Chapel

It was a beautiful and interesting experience from all points of view. Thanks to our friendly and very prepared guide Alessandra, we got to know the sacred, the profane, the traditions, and superstitions, the customs of Naples and the Neapolitans. Visited the main streets of the center and finally, San Gennaro and the Veiled Christ. Without this tour done at the beginning of our vacation, we would not have been able to appreciate and know Naples so well. A greeting and thanks from the province of Como

Tour from the old city and Cristo Velato I recommend this half-day tour to discover some of the oldest monuments of the city, the Cathedral which houses the relic of the blood of San Gennaro, Spaccanapoli, San Gregorio Armeno with the artisan shops, Chapel of San Severo to see the Veiled Christ.
