1. Ancient Neapolitan routes:
main points of interest are located around the Ancient "decumani
and cardins" of the Historical centre that is laying over
the same lines of the 2000 years old settlement of Neapolis. Here
you can visit, just going few metres underground, the Greek-romans
ruins or a parallel city, named Underground Napoli, underneath
the surface city, that during the centuries has had its own life
as a kind of mirror of what was happing outside. Then, from lane
to lane you are taken through the majestic Palazzi and Churches
of the old Naples, where art treasures and vivid evidences of
the old times are enduring through the centuries: we will see
grave of Kings and Philosophers, the old residences of poets and
actors that made Naples so famous in the world and much more.
Finally the tour arrives to The New Castle and the Royal Palace
with the huge Plebiscito Square, just few hundreds metres from
the wonderful Egg Castle, laying calm and imperturbable on the
shores of what was the first settlement of Partenope, and that
is considered as a seal of the whole Myth of Naples.
