Naples – Arrive in Naples and Enjoy a Family Friendly Introductory Tour
Naples is a city of bustling activity and historical grandeur at the edge of the Bay of Naples. Palaces and churches line the exuberantly colorful streets of Italy’s third largest city as the aromas of fresh espresso and pizza fill the elegant piazzas. French, Spanish, Austrian, and Byzantine culture converge across an Italy city with ancient Greek foundations. Your family will land at Naples International Airport where you will meet your private transfer at baggage claim, and your family will then enter the fast pace of the city. As you drive in, you will find charm in both the narrow lanes of historical neighborhoods and broad promenades along the harbor.
Your comfortable hotel will overlook the Bay with a view of the dramatic ramparts of Castel dell’Ovo, a structure whose foundations date back to the 5th century AD. The kids will marvel at the ship masts that they can see in the distance in the harbor and then will notice their proximity to an actual castle, which will begin your journey as a family with enthusiasm. Your guide will meet you at your hotel eager to introduce your family to a city often overlooked by visitors and passed through on the way to the Amalfi Coast. Your guide will point out the aquarium at the edge of the harbor, the oldest in Europe.
You will find the scent of fresh, flaky pizza dough emanating from the local, quiet trattorias around town as you wander along Via Benedetto Croce to reach Piazza San Domenico Maggiore, a square encircled a central obelisk erected by monks in the 17th century. Palazzo Petrucci frames the piazza to the left, and your guide will lead you inside the church to find the remains of the original 10th-century Romanesque structure. Your family will enjoy the first view of historical frescoes painted by Renaissance masters, including Caravaggio and Tiziano.
