      • Castel Nuovo: Or "New Castle," Naples' political fulcrum during Antiquity, when there was a crucial commercial port in the area, up through the High Medieval period when Petrarch and Boccaccio were guests here.
      • Castel dell'Ovo: Named "Egg Castle" for the legend that poet Virgil placed a magical egg as a support in the fortification's foundation. Its past stretches to Roman times and features many incarnations, most notably as a Norman prison.
      • Palazzo Reale: The bay as a backdrop, push on to this royal palace, which served during the reign of the Bourbon Kings and boasts an elaborate, imperial style.
      • Itinerary, continued: It varies at this point, along the waterfront to absorb more scenery. Perhaps, see the Spanish district and artistic riches like the Basilica of Santa Maria Degli Angeli a Pizzofalcone or the Palazzo Serra di Cassano.
      • Discoveries along the way: Gain insight into the complex political and social development of Naples, from its Greek origins as Neapolis to modern times.
      • More than a guide: Even by our standards, your tour leader is special. Be enlightened by a Ph.D.- or MA-level, trained art historian or social historian, who we officially refer to as a "docent" (from the Latin for "teacher").

      Meeting point

      Please meet your guide in front of the Cafe Gambrinus, located at Via Chiaia 1, in Piazza Trieste e Trento. To reach the meeting point via public transportation, you can use the C25, 140 or R3 buses.

      Helpful hints

      There are entrance fees you must pay at the door: museums, churches and public buildings that you visit during the walk (approximately 9 euro).

      As in many cities, keep your wallet or purse secured and leave the bling behind. In need of retail therapy after your tour? Your guide can advise you where to go in search of that "must have" souvenir to take home. Be sure to have some local currency and a backpack for all your great buys.
