Naples: City Highlights Self-Guided Audio Walking Tour

8. Naples: City Highlights Self-Guided Audio Walking Tour

”You see Naples,” said the German poet Wolfgang Goethe, “then you die.” But this isn’t supposed to sound ominous. Goethe was paraphrasing a local saying that suggests you can learn everything you need to live well by visiting this most Italian of cities, with its proud traditions, delicious food and seaside beauty under the timeless watch of Mount Vesuvius. And what about history? There’s been a lot of it here, from Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, and Byzantium to Goths, Saracen Pirates, Angevines, Aragonese, Bourbons and Napoleonic generals. I’ve spent time studying these episodes for my podcast, A History of Italy, and I’ll guide you through them today, while we walk. The tour starts in one of Italy's largest squares near the impressive Castel Nuovo. From there, we’ll make our way through the theatre district and the main shopping street where you can taste some Neapolitan delicacies. That’ll take us to the grand Piazza del Plebiscito where you’ll find the imposing Royal Palace of Naples and Naples Cathedral. We’ll end the tour with a stroll along the seaside, where there are views of the city stretching out towards Vesuvius. The tour ends at the ancient and oddly named “egg castle”, Castel dell'Ovo. Join me on this walk to some of the most important historical landmarks of old Naples. Along the way, you’ll discover why “That's Amore” as you fall in love with the city like so many others have before you.

The tour was the best solution for those who have never been to the city and for those who don't have that long stay. The guide was excellent company and answered all our doubts, his name is Edoardo and I congratulate him again. The palace is visited in every detail and also the city itself. Super super recommended.

Well organized tour, punctual, precise and very helpful guide, the hours flew by also because the descriptions of the monuments were intertwined with local fables and customs. She will be a young, witty and very helpful guide

The tour was very interesting and touched on many points of Naples... not only cultural but also typical of modern Neapolitan culture. The guide Eduardo was excellent…prepared and kind. I recommend it to everyone

Two routes, but few departures. When the city gets busy in summer, it can be difficult to get a spot.

A hop on hop off tour is worthwhile in every city. This is also the case in Naples
