How to Explore Naples with a City Walking Tour
The stunning city of Naples, Campania's capital, has much to offer visitors. Perhaps best known for its remarkable gastronomy, Naples is the birthplace of pizza. Found on the southwest coast of Italy, Naples combines architectural styles, with majestic 18th-century palazzos, castles, and beautiful churches. The city has a wide range of things to see and do, making it Rome’s rival in terms of the history and splendor of its attractions.
Visit the stunning “Piazza del Gesu” where you will discover the church of Gesu Nuovo and the obelisk of Immacolatella. Walk along Spaccanapoli street and admire the 14th-century church and monastery of Saint Chiara, the square of Saint Domenico, the famous Chapel San Severo where the majestic statue “Cristo Velato” of Giuseppe Sammartino is preserved. Follow the street “via dei Tribunali” to explore the 13th century church of Saint Lorenzo, the chapel Pio Monte di Misericordia with the masterwork of Caravaggio, “The Seven Works of Mercy”, and the 13th century cathedral of Saint Gennaro with its great baroque style chapel where the blood of the Saint is preserved. Stop for lunch at a local pizzeria. This guided tour provides all the necessary help and assistance for the entire duration of the tour as well as skip-the-line admission fees for the Cappella San Severo & Pio Monte della Misericordia. The activity level is moderate. You will walk about 3 km, so comfortable shoes and light clothes in the summer are recommended. Bear in mind that you can’t enter a church with bare shoulders, mini skirts or shorts.
