Full description

Discover downtown Naples and explore the San Severo Chapel on a guided walking tour. Follow your guide through the lively Spaccanapoli street and admire highlights, including San Domenico Maggiore.

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 into two halves with shops, restaurants, and alleys. Be amazed by the San Domenico Maggiore church with a perfect overlapping of different architectural styles and the pearl of Naples, the Chapel San Severo.

See the famous statue of the God of Nile river, Piazza St. Gaetano, and the churches of Naples, San Lorenzo, and San Paolo Maggiore. See the 13th-century baroque cathedral of Saint Gennaro at the heart of the Neapolitan faith. Here the blood of the saint patron St. Gennaro is preserved.

The tour was enjoyable and well organised. There were a lot of people on the streets but the guide tried to extricate himself as best he could. I thought the tour was articulated on more routes than those covered but perhaps there wasn't the time. We moved very slowly through the crowd. The supplied earphones have favored (and not a little) listening to the guide. The guide also entertained us with pleasant and curious Neapolitan ideas. The visit to the Veiled Christ required the entire "ticket" by itself.

Emotional and memorable experience of our trip to Naples, almost 3 hours in which we really entered the soul of the city, through fragments of its history admirably told by our guide, Carlo Zarone, simply splendid in his polite, ironic, competent communication , rich in historical and cultural ideas, without ever bordering on the know-it-all. In front of the Veiled Christ, his examination of the work, not limited only to the artistic aspect, albeit predominant, but also to a sort of emotion that this marvel of human genius generates, deserves to be recorded and disseminated in schools, for the emotion that aroused in all of us. If we take home the memory of a city that embodies the word "emotion", it is also thanks to this tour and to Carlo, for the heart and expertise he has put into it.

I would do it again a thousand times! Absolutely recommended tour because visiting Naples Center with a local guide is very different than visiting it as a solo tourist. The guide shows buildings, historic and characteristic corners of the city that might escape the view of a non-local. Furthermore, our guide was particularly helpful and kind even in recommending the best bars and restaurants in the center. During the tour, really interesting facts, anecdotes and myths typical of Neapolitan history are also narrated. Finally, the Chapel of San Severo absolutely deserves to be visited, certainly for the Veiled Christ but also for all the other works present. It is advisable to book the tour several days in advance especially if you are visiting during a holiday period.
