Naples – Arrive in Naples for a Historical and Luxurious Introductory Tour
Naples is a city of remarkable history and elegant nobility while filled with vibrant life as it edges the eponymous bay. You will arrive at Naples International Airport where your private transfer will greet you and bring you to your hotel that overlooks Via Nuova Marina and the cream colored ramparts of Castello dell’Ovo. The castle was erected over the remains of a Roman fortification in the 9th century to protect the harbor and the surrounding city from Saracens. The first formation of the current edifice was erected in the 12th century under the guidance of Norman rule. Cannons face the sea and peek their iron frame out of the portholes as elegant arcades surround the stone courtyard.
The Duomo in the heart of the city was erected in the 13th century with a Gothic style, yet Baroque frescoes decorate the Chapel of the Treasure of San Gennaro, known for housing the relics of two vials filled with the saint’s coagulated blood. The 4th-century Basilica Santa Restituta flanks the Cathedral to the right and remains the oldest church in the city and features a collection of frescoes that brighten the ceiling and columns that were taken from the original Temple of Apollo that once stood on the site. The aroma of fresh pizza and roasted coffee beans floats along the cobblestone streets of the historical center as yachts, fishing boats, and sailboats enter and exit the harbor at leisure. At dinner, you will settle into a seat at a restaurant that celebrates the traditions of Neapolitan cuisine while delighting diners in new and surprising ways.
