Naples is a city with a thousand faces, like a diamond. Have you ever imagined walking among the most important shop windows of the great Italian brands and finding yourself in a Medieval Castle in the middle of the sea? This can happen in Naples with THIS tour. We will start from Piazza dei Martiri, an elegant district of Naples surrounded by Rococò Palazzos and some in the Liberty style. From here our walk, among anecdotes of architecture, history and archeology, will arrive at the foot of a medieval fortress: the “Castel dell’ovo” built in the 11th century.A Legend says that an alchemical “egg” is kept in its foundations, which explains the name, but the reality is that it was built on the ruins of a magnificent Roman villa overlooking the sea. In this tour I will then take you, to the feet of the Castle where among the bronze cannons, narrow prisons, you will admire the most beautiful view of the city seen from the sea. As Goethe said in his Grand Tour “See Naples and Die, because no city is more beautiful then here. Naples is a Heaven” Your archaeologist waits for you, ciao!
