What you'll do

A historical place out of the classic tourist itineraries.
Once upon a time there was Naples and its splendid Gulf. There was the ancient Residence of the Princes of Belvedere Carafa that solitary stood on the hill of the village of Vomero. This story begins at the dawn of the century of the Enlightenment, the century of Borbone Kings, Carlo III and Ferdinando. A beautiful house with breathtaking views becomes a meeting place for writers and artists, but also an healthy refuge for regents and men of power. Queen Maria Carolina and King Ferdinando di Borbone stayed on the occasion of the her seventeenth pregnancy. The King Gioacchino Murat, brother-in-law of Napoleon, lived there from 1808 to 1815. The Villa Belvedere was a place of wonderful fusion between sky and sea, city and countryside, in the shadow of a looming Vesuvius on fire.
We will tell the story of this wonderful Neapolitan residence, accessing exclusively in the house. We will enjoy its splendid view of the Gulf of Naples, from Posillipo to Capo di Sorrento, with Vesuvius on the left and in the background the profile of Capri.
All while enjoying a good Neapolitan coffee, talking amiabily with the landlady.
