I liked the information from the guide who was professional and entertaining. I did not like that the booking for small groups was 25 people....

Very nice experience,despite the uncertain weather and large crowds. The added value was our guide Francesco who with competence, helpfulness and also a pinch of cheerfulness made us grasp the artistic but also folkloric aspects of the city of Naples. Congratulations

Very good organization. I had not been able to find a ticket for the Veiled Christ, so I turned to this site (Headout) a little afraid of getting a rip-off (which had happened to me in the past) : I had to change my mind. The walk in the center of Naples, together with the visit to the Veiled Christ, thanks to the excellent guide (Francesco) , who dispensed historical notes and curiosities, was a wonderful surprise. Absolutely recommend it.

Carlo's engaging , empathetic and experienced guide, a rare ability to find in our time, professionally guided us through the decumani of a Naples of bygone days; the visit to the sansevero chapel and the veiled christo enraptured my heart from such beauty. I highly recommend this exciting experience

See the soul of Naples

This guided walking tour takes you on a journey into the heart of ancient Naples, in only 2.5 hours. Feel the humdrum of the old historic city center as you stroll along the Spaccanapoli and experience the year-round Christmas spirit in the alley of San Gregorio Armeno, dotted with artisanal shops and nativity figurines.

Unveil the “Veiled Christ”

As you step into the Sansevero Chapel, watch rays of light dance through the stained glass windows illuminating secrets centuries old in vivid colors. Amidst the elaborate Baroque frescoes and marble sculptures, the Veiled Christ by Giuseppe Sanmartino stands apart. Though carved from marble, the delicate veil over Christ’s form looks so real and it feels like it will flutter in any breath. People were so irked by its realistic details that rumors started floating. Most believed that some dark alchemy allowed the artist and the patron of the Chapel to turn anything and everything into marble. Listen to your guide paint vivid tapestries of the events that conspired inside and outside the Chapel’s walls.

You can opt for an Italian or French-speaking art historian guide to dive into this UNESCO-listed city of art, or a French-speaking guide as per your preference and comfort. The Italian and French art guided tours also include a visit to the Chiostro of Santa Chiara, under which a 1st-century Roman bath lies hidden. The English-guided tour gives you skip-the-line access to Veiled Christ.
