What You Can Expect

Caravaggio and the Baroque Walking Tour

Admire Naples Cathedral on this walking tour

Begin your tour near Piazza del Gesú, where you’ll join up with your guide. Take off through the streets of Naples, strolling first toward the church of Gesú Nuovo. Admire the unique Baroque building, its exterior covered in pyramid-shaped stones, and then step inside to see the frescoes and elaborate decor.

Afterward, follow your guide past the architectural gems of the historic center, including the churches of Santa Chiara and San Domenico Maggiore, as well as Cappella Sansevero (own expense). Hear the rich history behind these stunning structures before heading to San Lorenzo Maggiore, a gothic church dating back to the 13th century.

Time permitting, travel below the church to view the remains of an ancient Roman marketplace (own expense). Then, make your way toward Caravaggio’s The Seven Works of Mercy, a life-size painting nested in the church of Pio Monte della Misericordia.

Top off your trip at the Naples Cathedral, a masterpiece of Neapolitan Baroque architecture. See the 5th-century baptistery (own expense) and gaze up at the ornate interior.

After four hours of exploration, you will finish at your original departure point.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

our guide was very knowledgable,spoke english fluently,was personable and on time. My wife and I were the only two on the tour and he tailored it to our interests. The only problem was wwe were asked to call and confirm within five hours of a ten o'clock tour. We called at breakfast eight o'clock and were told that the tour had been moved to nine. It worked for us but could have been a problem.
