A walking tour through the discovery of some of the most precious hidden treasure of Naples, starting from the Pio Monte della Misericordia, which was founded by seven young people from Naples in 1601.
The historical palace and the church built in the XVII century, still preserve a wide artistic heritage. Among them is one of the best known masterpieces of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, as well as a rich group of paintings from different schools and periods. We will continue along the Via dei Tribunali which is similar to the old Decumano of the Roman city and we will visit some masterpieces, such as “Cacciata dei Mercanti dal tempio” of Luca Giornado in the Girolaminis church, the Madonna dell-Arco, the paintings of Mattia Preti in the church of S. Pietro a Majella, the Cristo Velato of Sammartino in the chapel Sansevero a masterpiece of the architecture of 1700.
Napoli Sotterranea, the underground of Naples. There lies a labyrinth of tunnels, tanks and cavities that spread underneath the old town. It is a fascinating and impressive grandeur of the cavities, and the maze of tunnels that cross each other for several miles below the streets and the buildings above.
The San Gennaro Catacombs, the most extensive in southern Italy, are located beneath one of the most populated neighborhoods in Naples. The San Gennaro Catacombs consisted of two levels, with an ancient “upper vestibule,” with remarkable frescoes and for its tiny cripta dei vescovi or Bishops’ Crypt (situated near the tomb of Gennaro himself). The basilica maior, dug entirely in tuff rock, features three naves, and boasts a number of 5th-6th Century frescoes.
DAY FOUR – SAN MARTINO, CASTEL SANT’ELMO and CHIAIA, POSILLIPO
The Museum of San Martino is an important museum in Naples. Unlike most museums, it includes a church, a charterhouse, beautiful monastery yards and a terraced garden, from its days as a large monastery. The museum itself is located in the former living quarters.
In over 70 halls, it displays exhibits from different eras of Naples city history.
Stretched out along the waterfront, with the pastel palazzi and the ascending the hills, this is Naples’ most upmarket locale. Wealthy Romans and grand tourists chose to enjoy their sojourns and today, it’s home to smart shops, galleries, beautiful parks and mansions. We will take a driving tour to take in the beautiful location.
Enjoy a delightful dinner at one of the fashionable restaurants.
