Free Walking Tour of Naples
Your free walking tour of Naples will begin in Piazza Dante, ready to see the most important places of interest in historic Naples.
Follow your expert English-speaking guide through the historic Port'Alba, part of the ancient city walls, to reach the street of the same name. This alleyway leads to Piazza Bellini, a square where you'll be enchanted by the excavations of Greek buildings dating back to the 4th century BC. You'll also get to see the façade of Naples' historic music conservatory here.
You'll next stroll down Via dei Tribunali, one of Naples' oldest streets, and as you take in the elegance of the crumbling buildings lining the alleyway, your guide will reveal all about the incredible Greek and Roman legacy of the Italian city. Discover who "Pulcinella" is as you make a stop by a statue of the iconic Neapolitan figure.
The free walking tour will take you inside a number of churches, where you'll have the opportunity to admire their exquisite decoration. Reaching the quaint Piazza San Gaetano, you'll be struck by the sheer size of the San Paolo Maggiore Basilica, an enormous church that seems very out of place in the narrow labyrinthine streets of Naples Old Town.
Continuing along Via San Gregorio Armeno, a historic street known for its many shops selling nativity figurines, you'll next reach Nile God Statue, an ancient sculpture dating back to the 2nd century, and the the Piazza of San Domenico Maggiore.
Your free walking tour will come to an end in Piazza del Gesu Nuovo, where you'll wave goodbye to your guide after two fascinating hours.
