A DAY AS A NEAPOLITAN
How do Neapolitans live? Find out in the narrow streets of the old town and Piazza del Plebiscito, a favorite venue for major concerts and events. From the Riviera di Chiaia to the elegant neighborhood of Posillipo and along the promenade that is Via Caracciolo, with its views of the Bay and nightlife venues.
- Maschio Angioino
- San Carlo Theater and Umberto I Gallery
- Piazza del Plebiscito, Royal Palace, Church of San San Francesco di Paola (external visit)
- Riviera di Chiaia
- Via Caracciolo, the Neapolitan seafront
- Naples can't wait to amaze you: starting in the port with the imposing Maschio Angioino castle, once occupied by kings and viceroys.
- From the San Carlo Theater, the oldest in Europe and still operating, continue to the Umberto I Gallery, a historic place of entertainment for aristocrats and artists. You're in the best place to enjoy a “tazzulella” or small cup of Neapolitan coffee, which connoisseurs rate as the best in the world.
- Don't be surprised if at Piazza del Plebiscito you see someone blindfolded and trying to walk in a straight line between the Royal Palace and the equestrian statues of the Bourbons. Spoiler alert: it's impossible, the sloping ground will lead them in completely the wrong direction.
- Did you know that the Church of San Francesco di Paola is inspired by the Pantheon? Our guide will tell you all about this and more.
- From Riviera di Chiaia, with its aristocratic Aragonese villas, climb up to Posillipo: there is no better view of the Bay. With Vesuvius in the background.
- On the way back, stroll along the Via Caracciolo seafront promenade, the venue of choice for Neapolitan families to go for a walk before their huge Sunday lunch; in the evening the place comes alive with its many bars, clubs and restaurants.
