What you'll do

With this exp you SUPPORT real LOCAL HOSTS

Ciao Explorers!

Whoever stops by Naples, shouldn't miss a walk through its historic center with an ARCHAEOLOGIST.
No worries! I'll guide you through the most remarkable historical/art spots of the city, with a particular focus on UNCOMMON locations off the beaten track. We'll stroll through the Greek/Roman "layers" of Naples. A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE that's combined everything Napoli has to offer

- Starting from Piazza Bellini (the HEART of Naples) with a Greek archaeological site under your nose, we walk through ancient streets of the "Decumani" (Roman grid road system) and SPACCANAPOLI enjoying Monuments and Art.
We'll stop to Gothic and Baroque churches as S. Lorenzo, S. Domenico. We explore the unique nativity scenes and ARTISANS quarter of S. Grergorio Armeno with the cloister; we'll admire the exclusive BANKSY mural (and TONS of street art on the way!).
A MUST for our tour is a caffè in the MARADONA's bar (with his HOLY hair!) talking about the Neapolitan Life!

Let yourself be carried through our LOCAL culture and discover the CULT of Dead (Underground church of Purgatory) or Veiled Statue: two hidden GEMS.

Our special walk ends at the Cathedral to understand the Miracle of our patron Saint: Gennaro.

Ciaooo !

Ciao explorers!

I'm a Neapolitan Archaeologist with 12 years of field experience on my neck and I'm an Official Tour Guide of the Campania Region. I have a BA in Archaeology, a master in Classical Archaeology and a Ph.D in Archeological Heritage. Also I work on archeological excavations here in Naples. Since I was a child, I have always loved the ancient history of Greece and Rome as well as art from the Middle Ages to the 20th (1900s). I love to meet new people!

My co-hosts/friends and I are ALL official guides and archeologists who all studied at the University of Naples Federico II. We'll offer our guide's skills of years and knowledge and a deep understanding of local culture, art, history, archaeology, and much more just for you

I’ve never been to Napoli, I wanted the basics and this was that and so much more. I loved it, I would 100% recommend!

One of the first things Rafaelle said during the tour was that you either love Naples, or you hate it. By the end of his tour, all you can do is adore it. I had a really fun time, Rafaelle knows so much about the city and managed to even make me slightly enthusiastic about very old Roman stones - which is hard! Do yourself a favour and book this tour. You’ll see the true beauty of Naples.

Ich würde die Tour allen empfehlen, die gerne einen Überblick über die Stadt bekommen möchten. Alleine würde man definitiv an Vielem einfach vorbeilaufen während man mit Raffaele nichts verpasst!!

La visita con Raffaele è stata molto interessante, sia per le vie di Napoli che all'interno della Cappella San Severo; lui mi è sembrato una persona socievole e disponibile, preparata e desiderosa di trasmettere la propria passione per la città attraverso anche il racconto di aneddoti che non si leggono sulle guide. Consiglio vivamente questa esperienza!
