Peek Into the Daily Life of Naples

The experience begins with a walk through the street of SpaccaNapoli, which divides modern Naples into 2 parts. As you travel through the street, you will come across artist workshops, overhanging balconies, and narrow alleys.

Walk through the Underground City of Neapolis

Arrive at the picturesque alley of Via San Gregorio Armeno, known for its artisan shops that sell nativity-scene figurines. Then, walk to the San Lorenzo church, a monument beneath which lies the ancient city of Neapolis. Here, you will visit the temples, churches, and tunnels created in the 4th century BC by the Greeks. See the church of Santa Luciella ai Librai, where the followers of the Napoleon cult of the dead come to pray.

The Catacombs of the Cathedral of San Gennaro

On your visit to the Cathedral, you will find ‘Catacombs’ that were tombs of a noble family. The upper Catacomb houses the remains of San Gennaro, which makes it a sought-after burial ground to visit. Its long history, which ranges from Gothic to Baroque to Neo-Gothic, is reflected in the cathedral’s architectural styles. You'll find exquisitely detailed frescoes, complex bronze railings, massive altars, and sculptures and paintings by renowned Italian painters within.
