After meeting your guide in the morning at the Gesù Nuovo in the historical center of this pulsating, dynamic city, traverse the narrow streets on a quest to discover what lies beneath the city of Naples.
First founded by the Greeks, Naples comes from the word ‘New Polis, or ‘New City.’ So there is a lot of history to be uncovered. Once at the the Duomo di San Gennaro, the city’s gorgeous cathedral, head inside and descend below the city.
Get wowed by the ancient sites that exist below the cathedral, including a a paved road that was built during the Greek era. Learn from your art historian guide about the history of it and also learn about the Baroque church you’re standing in.
Once on the surface again, stroll the streets taking in the bustling ambience of one of Europe’s most unique urban environments. Walk down the famed Via dei Tribunali, originally a Greek and Roman road many centuries ago.
When you arrive at the church of San Lorenzo Maggiore, descend below the gothic church where you’ll find an ancient Greek and Roman agora, or public square, that goes back about 2,300 years. Take some time to explore the place and the existing ancient structures, learning all in the intriguing details from your guide.
When the time comes, head back to the church of Gesù Nuovo where the tour finishes.
