Would you like an insight into daily life in the beautiful town of Naples?

The ancient city of Naples was built by the Greeks during the 5th century BC and the Greek culture is the basis of this multicolored city whose layout is similar to other cities in the motherland.

The city centre is always crowded with hundreds of people who come from all over the world to experience the life of this incredible city that looks like an open-air museum.

Narrow streets, small squares, hundreds of beautiful churches, Renaissance architecture mixing with older buildings, stores offering all kinds of street food, people's voices singing or performing in the streets and much more is what makes this city one of the most fascinating in the world.

Strolling through the ancient centre of Naples, the famous Greco-Roman town known as Neapolis, will give us the opportunity to see sublime churches teeming with sacred art, archaeological remains of the Greek and Roman city emerging from old buildings, artisan shops along the famous Via San Gregorio Armeno, the street where the very famous Neapolitan nativity scene is created and the remarkable Spaccanapoli, the street which seems to split the town of Naples in two.

During the visit we will also have the opportunity to taste some culinary specialties that the city offers.
