The guide, Donatella, very good and competent, gave us a fundamental historical premise to understand the city and its formation. Palazzo Reale, Piazza del Plebiscito, the Maschio Angioino have no more secrets for us. Thanks also to Davide, his colleague, for the assistance! The visit ended with the street art of the Quartieri Spagnoli and lots of useful information on how to pursue the visit of this amazing city on your own!

Разходката беше добре подредена. Серина беше изключително любезна, информативна и лъчезарна. Почерпи ни със сладолед и ни заведе на място, от където да купим сувенири. Упъти ни как да се приберем най-лесно. Благодарим за това!
