The goal of our guided tour is to show the artistic richness of Naples through its most significant monuments. Naples is considered the capital of Southern Italy, the third-largest municipality after Rome and Milan and one of the most interesting for its cultural and artistic heritage. Founded around the 8th century B.C. by Greek colonists, the town was originally called Parthenope (VII B.C.) and then Neapolis, Νέα Πόλις, the New Town, a hub of commercial activities in the Greek world. Around 320 B.C. the town was conquered by the Romans who ruled it until the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476 A.D. Through the centuries Naples has been under several foreign dominations. The city's religious and secular architecture shows a variety of styles, including Romanesque, Gothic, Catalan, Tuscan, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical and Neoclassical. During your walking tour you'll see not just the well-known highlights but the city’s heart.
