Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in the morning at the church of Gesù Nuovo in Naples’ historical center. Then, set off through the bustling streets on a mission to uncover the layers of history that lie beneath your feet.

Naples has a long and varied history, evidence of which is preserved in the underworld beneath the modern-day surface. At the city’s cathedral, Duomo di San Gennaro, step out of the Neapolitan traffic and into the ruins of an ancient city.

Marvel at the ancient sights, which include a paved road that dates back to the Greek era and various Roman and early Christian ruins. Follow your professional art historian guide through the ruins and note how they contrast against the church’s ornate Baroque décor.

Back on street level, continue walking through Naples’ city center, soaking up the lively atmosphere as you go. Find out which main city thoroughfares still follow the old Roman city plan and stroll down Via dei Tribunali, one of the main roads from the old Greco-Roman city.

Next, stop at the church of San Lorenzo Maggiore to see more underground ruins. Descend below the Gothic church into the old Greek and Roman agora. Walk along streets that date back to the 1st and 3rd centuries BC and get a closer look at the time-worn structures and passageways.

Make your way back to the church of Gesù Nuovo, where — having learned about the city’s long and illustrious past — your tour concludes.

  • This tour was very informative and enjoyable. Definitely worth booking.

  • It was overpriced.
    The guide was helpful and interesting, though.
    This tour is something you can do on your own without having to pay so much money which did not include entrance fee.

  • This was a very interesting walk and we learned lots of fascinating things about Naples that we would never have spotted otherwise. Our guide spoke excellent English and her knowledge of the art and history of her native city was extensive. We were slightly disappointed not to spend more time underground - that part of the tour was much shorter than we expected.

  • Very experienced and motivated guide

  • Excellent - very informed, enthusiastic guide we enjoyed every moment and that is why we have booked our third VIATOR only a few days ago for the 4 of us again - this time in Poland so we are expecting the same incredible standard that we have encountered in Italy..

  • Very well explained and interesting facts provided

  • Absolutely fantastic, our guide was fantastic, full of information and advice would highly recommend

  • Roberta was very knowledgeable and excited about showing her city! We ran into a problem with a funeral at the church in which we were supposed to have an underground tour which was unfortunate.
