I will take you to discover Naples, my hometown. You will discover unexplored corners of the city and I will take you there where it all began 2700 years ago, in the historic center of Naples. We start the walk with new excavations of the subway to discover the remains of 2 Roman vessels. Let's walk along S.Biagio dei Librai and Via dei Tribunali the ancient decumans of the city in the Greco-Roman period. I will take you to discover the superstitious rituals of us Neapolitans, I will tell you the story of the famous "corniciello", the oldest lucky charm of Europe. We will visit Piazza San Domenico Maggiore, which with its ghosts still today fascinates the imagination of many people. We will pass between the nativity scenes of San Gregorio Armeno and tell you about the tradition of the shepherds and the Pulcinella mask. Once in the heart of the historic center, in Piazza S.Gaetano, we will descend into the underground to explore the Greco-Roman city of Neapolis that still stands below the current city. Finally I will take you to the Cathedral of Naples to explore the crypt of S.Gennaro and learn the secrets of the most famous miracle in the world, the miracle of blood liquefaction.

Mediocre overview of the major spots in Naples. Dialogue with tour guide was very limited. There were long periods of walking without descriptions. Very little historical context.

Guide didnot cared for us to join the group on first day. We waited for an hour at the meeting point and tried in everypossible way provided by airbnb to contact our guide.. the reply came much later when i asked for refund. The guide denied for refund and asked us to do the tour next day. Next day We booked a tour in english. But we had 9 other people from spain , our guide was comfortable with speaking spanish but despite the effort of our guide language was a barrier... in first 1.5hr we did nothing but just covered 2 sights from outside with basic information and wend to some coffeshop. We had to left the tour in the middle because of this uncomfort. And also we were asked to write it on a paper that we are leaving the tour by our own and no refund to be given. Ofcourse at some point our guide became rude too. And after a while she got some chill. The was the worst and most disappointing airbnb experience i ever did in past years... I strongly advice everyone to avoid going this tour.

that was walk trough historical center(literally) but nothing else....despite big efforts of our guide the language barrier was a real problem for her - so to advertise this event as "english language tour" is definitevly exageration and it is misleading.

We had a small group my chance and had a wonderful time. My guide Maria provided a lot of information. And she made sure we get to underground on time. Highly recommended.
