Naples City & Underground Ruins

Naples City & Underground Ruins

Discover the history, the culture of one of the oldest city of Italy

Naples is a combination of historical, artistic, natural and folkloristic beauties in direct contradiction to the poverty that has invested the city after the war. Older than Rome, was founded by the Greeks in the eighth century BC with the name of Parthenopolis.

Its historic center is the largest historical center protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, and includes more than 500 churches and several underground tunnels that run through the ancient streets of Roman century.

Meet your tour guide in front of the fountain of Neptune in Municipio Square and enjoy the tour of the historical center with its ancient Greek streets, the Roman underground ruins and the countless churches. Our city boasts different architecture styles due to many invasions and therefore, you will see not only the Greek and Roman area but also the medieval and Baroque areas. At the same time, you will perceive the diversity of religious belief systems co-existing in society, as well: a mixture of Pagan and Christian icons can be seen in San Gregorio Armeno market, where you can also explore several artisan shops.

Besides, the "Neapolitan" culture is expressed in the typical local food as well as in the narrow streets full of players and dancers that will colour your walk with unbelievable effects. After the free time, the tour guide will reach the monumental area of Naples and you will enjoy the view of medieval Angiò's castle and one of the world's best neoclassical theatres, the Theatre of San Carlo. Opposite to the San Carlo's Theatre you will find out the "liberty style shopping center" known as "Galleria Umberto I" and than you will stroll in Via Toledo and Piazza Plebiscito.

The tour lasts around 5/6 hours and includes 2 free time breaks, each of 45 minutes, one for shopping and one for lunch.
