Type of Service: Ancient Heart of Naples Stroll with Local Street Food Tastings

Explore Naples’ UNESCO Recognized Historic Center

Meet your local expert guide and intimate group of just 10 people or fewer in the heart of Naples before embarking on this mind and palate-opening experience. You’ll then be off to sample some of the most delectable flavors and sought after culinary delights that Italy has to offer at authentic, hand-picked food vendors that will allow you to mingle with the Neapolitans themselves.

A Stroll to Make Your Stomach Roar - All along your evening stroll, your guide will fill you with the urban legends and history that make Naples come to life, as you dine on delectable examples of the city’s famed street food. If you thought you knew pizza, think again. Naples is home to so many original varieties that you’ll have a hard time choosing. Then pass to the savory ‘pagnutiello, ‘cuoppo’, or ‘cup’, due to the paper cone it is served in, or the ‘cuppetiello’, another succulent version that will make your mouth water.

 If you have a sweet tooth, then you’re definitely in the right place, too! Naples is home to some of the best and most famous pastries in the world with such delicious creations as scrumptious ‘sfogliatelle’, rich ‘Baba’ soaked in rum or the epicurean ‘zeppole’, filled with custard, jelly or cream. Your journey will take you through narrow, picturesque alleys as they open onto elegant piazzas.

Naples from the Inside Out - Pass from Piazza del Gesù, with the splendid Spanish-style Baroque Church of Gesù Nuovo and an incredibly sculpted monument dedicated to the Holy Virgin. Visit the ancient heart of the city along Spaccanapoli, one of its oldest streets, dividing it in half. See San Gregorio Armeno, famous for its Christmas market and where the most beautiful Nativity scene figures you have ever seen are sold year-round by sculptors that rival Michelangelo and Bernini.

 You’ll also pass the Naples Cathedral, where every year on September 19th the blood of its patron saint, San Gennaro, miraculously reliquefies in a procession that animates the entire city. Then it’s on to other scenic streets, like Via dei Tribunali and finally into Piazza Dante, the city’s former market square, where your tour will end and it will be easy to catch a taxi or the metro back to your hotel.

 No other tour offers such an authentic view of the real city of Naples, with its unique atmosphere, amazing architecture and intense flavors. Your perception of this exotic city will never be the same after you have cut through the myths and discovered why this city is so loved. This is truly Naples at its best.

When Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD it left a flourishing city in ruin, but it also captured a day in the life of a Pompeian forever fossilized – turning what once was tragic into modern day magic.

Like no other experience on Earth, you’ll enjoy a fully-guided 2-hour tour of an absolutely awe-inspiring archeological area. Walk among the stone-slabbed streets where Pompeian villagers and aristocrats alike once went about their daily activities.

Follow your local guide as they recreate the hustle and bustle of this once-busy port town, explaining what each building was used for, where families ate their meals, did laundry and socialized – and where sailors went when they docked. They’ll recreate for you the final days of Pompeii as you examine the harrowing death casts scattered around these ruins at the foot of Mt. Vesuvius.

Explore their homes, including domuses (residences of the ancient elite), and the brightly painted frescoes and marvelous mosaics. Be inspired by your guide as they bring these relics back to life with details only locals would know.
