About the tour

Dear friends, Naples is a city that has different aspects and personalities. This virtual tour will take you to discover the Monumental and Royal Naples. We will start from the seafront, where you can admire the magnificent view of the bay with Vesuvius, the Sorrento peninsula and the island of Capri in the landscape. Raffaele will tell you about the legend of the mermaid Partenope, where it is said that her body rests under the medieval castle called "Castel dell'ovo". With the expertise of his experience as an archaeologist, Raffaele will take you to discover the largest square in Italy: Piazza del Plebiscito. Here we will be able to admire the Canova statue, the facade of the Royal Palace of Naples, the San Carlo theater (the oldest opera house in the world!), The Liberty-style Galleria Umberto I and the famous shopping street, via Toledo with the baroque palazzos along the way. Raffaele will also show you where to drink coffee and eat sfogliatella pastry in the most famous iconic bar of the city and where the real PIZZA was born for the first time in the world!
