What you will visit:

Naples Highlights (walking tour)
A walking tour of Naples is the best way to see the sights and absorb the exciting pulse of the city. Take in highlights of over 2,800 years of history, displayed in splendid castles, fountains, churches and piazzas. Leafy public parks like Villa Comunale and Parco Virgiliano are the perfect spot to soak up local color, and 40 meters below the city is an unexpected system of subterranean Greco-Roman tunnels, revealing ancient catacombs and the ruined remains of temples, aqueducts, theaters and World War II air raid shelters.

Naples Galleria Borbonica
Some 150 years after Ferdinand II of Bourbon and his architect Errico Alvino designed it, the Bourbon Gallery (Galleria Borbonica) is the most beautiful underground tour through the Naples "below." See the aqueduct of Carmignano, which served the city of Naples during the 600s; a military path of the 19th century named "Bourbon Gallery"; the bomb shelters used during WWII; and buried vintage cars and motorbikes.


Pompeii
The eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D. was a monumental natural disaster that killed thousands and entombed the city of Pompeii. A visit to this UNESCO World Heritage Site is an opportunity to view a moment in time preserved for more than 2,000 years in this lost city buried deep beneath the ash. Walk among the ruins that, in exquisite detail, paint a picture of daily Roman life. Known as a vacation community for high society, some of the ruins are remarkably preserved, with elaborately detailed mosaics and colorful frescoes decorating the interiors of wealthy homeowners' villas.

What you will see along the way:
Start your tour at the historic port guarded by the imposing Castel Nuovo, which looms over the harbor. Continue to the heart of the city, the Piazza del Plebiscito, dominated by the Royal Palace of Naples with its formidable, red façade featuring the statues of the eight kings. Admire the Church of San Francesco di Paola, the Teatro di San Carlo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Galleria Umberto. Tour the Naples Galleria Borbonica and see the aqueduct of Carmignano. At the end of the walk through the tunnel, you'll arrive at the Naples shoreline, where you'll see the famous Egg Castle in Santa Lucia.

Lunch at a local pizzeria includes pizza margherita, mixed salad and dessert. Choice of mineral water, wine or coffee.
