Overview
This walking tour will make you experience the authentic Naples of today with its bustling modern life and ancient, traditional life-styles. It focuses on the accesses to the Old City – its gates and markets and offers you endless photo opportunities.
What to Expect
First you will meet your professional photographer-tour guide in order to start your unique journey through the real Naples. The urban plan of Naples has not changed much since 5th century BC. The different gates were the areas where trade took place throughout the Middle Ages. The main markets are still there today, often located one step outside the inner city to avoid customs.   

The tour consists of a visit to the 4 main accesses, called “Porta” (gate): Porta Nolana (Fish Market), Porta San Gennaro (Markets of Vergini), Porta Capuana (Market of Borgo Sant’Antonio), and Porta Alba (Market of Pignasecca). These places outline the Mediterranean character of Naples, and are still the meeting place of the old and new city today. The itinerary takes you through the most hidden, narrow alleys of Old Naples – the so-called Vicoli. Here you will find the street is often a continuation of the ground level residence. Home-facing-streets are called Bassi. It is often the case that public areas in front of the house are cleaned by the maids as if it was part of a private home. In some other cases those one-room-ground level homes can even see some commercial activity! With your cameras you will not only search for the history or the landscape but also look at contemporary life in its simplicity, authenticity, and sometimes misery.
