Naples: Private Urban Walking Tour to the City Center

2. Naples: Private Urban Walking Tour to the City Center

Discover the beauty of Naples with an “urban trekking” path, easy to follow at any age. The walking tour is the ideal way to go and visit Naples from uphill down to the historic center. Start from the Vomero Hill, where you’ll enjoy a most beautiful view of the Gulf of Naples, and walk down to the Historic Center, the real heart of town, passing through the ancient steps, built in the 14th century. The tour starts with a spectacular view from the marvellous terrace of St. Martin’ Charterhouse, where you can enjoy an enchanting and breathtaking view over the entire Gulf of Naples from its amazing gardens. If closed, the Charterhouse will be replaced by St. Elmo Castle, the highest point of Naples from which to admire a 360 degrees view on the city.  The tour continues going down the quiet stairs of Pedamentina, one of the most ancient footpaths of the city. It is made of 414 steps and it connects the hillside of Naples to the heart of town, the historic center, and has panoramic and evocative view. As you go down you can see ancient houses and catch a glimpse of the most beautiful view of the Gulf and of Vesuvio. As you walk you will see the B&B of Mr Pasquale Nocerino: he is a violin player and his wife, Giovanna, is a ballet dancer. This is the neighborhood where Baudelaire lived for some time and where Marguerite Yourcenar set her tale “Anna, soror…”. From the Pedamentina you can also see the most famous Spaccanapoli, the Decumano Inferiore way which really cuts the town in two. As you go further walk along the lively, authentic, colourful Market of Pignasecca and finally get to the historic center of the town. It is the biggest in Europe and is listed as a “World Heritage Site” by UNESCO. Take a stroll and visit Spaccanapoli, visit its craft shops, walking by the main Piazzas, among folklore and ancient tales. Visit the Church of Gesù Nuovo and discover fascinating legends and the magic of the mysterious alchemical symbols on its facade, before entering in the Church of St. Clare. Go into the alley of San Gregorio Armeno and enter  the historical craft shop of the Ferrigno family, where the most ancient Neapolitan Crib is handmade. The day will come to end with a pleasant stop where you will be able to taste the real Neapolitan espresso accompanied by the typical Sfogliatella or Babà (excellent local pastries).

We had booked the trip to Pompeii on our own, without food and guide. Picking up from the meeting point worked smoothly, our tour guide spoke German really well. First we went through Naples with a short photo point on the Gulf of Naples with Vesuvius. Great panorama. Then it was seamless to Pompeii. The rest of the bus group had booked with a guide, but that was not a problem. We were dropped off and picked up again on time. Attention Pompeii is really huge, if you explore it on your own you should be able to read the map really well. This gave us 4 hours of free time there. But even those were soon not enough, there is so much to see there... The entire trip went from 7.30 a.m. to around 7 p.m. All in all a really great trip.

really good tour. the caich drive is 3 ish hours with a break in between. the pickup point was easy to find (3 or 4 staff members around so easy to ask) for the coach guide we had a lovely woman named rossella. she was amazing. so helpful,full of character and allowed my daughter to help with the radios and talking on the speakers. we went with the no audio guide option. rossella made sure we were confident in finding our own way around, gave us her number for emergency and made sure we knew when and where the pick up stop was. pompeii is amazing but don't be fooled,the place is huge! lots of walking,take food and plenty to drink. we'll worth the money for the experience!

Matteo made our day very enjoyable and at the same time fun and entertaining!!! He is very helpful and shows passion for his job!!! He does his job really well rven if there are hiccups he still approached everything with a positive attitude!!! Grazie Matteo!!

Excellent way to get to Pompeii however on the trip we did upgrade to the audio guide bus tour of Naples and guided tour of Pompeii ruins with Connie. To understand the significance and get to the best bits of Pompeii this was worth doing.

It was a very nice experience, the guide Rosella was very kind and attentive to the things we might need...the guide Sacha in dry Pompeii...and of course in all the spaces of the place
