Legendary stories of Ancient Greeks and Romans await you on this free walking tour of Naples Old Town. Explore the city's most historic streets with an expert English-speaking guide!

Free Walking Tour of Naples Old Town

Meet your guide by the Tritone Fountain at 10 am ready to embark on your adventure through history on this free walking tour of ancient Naples. Accompanied by an expert English-speaking guide, you'll explore one of the most fascinating areas of the city.

You'll next stroll past the National Archaeological Museum and cross Via dei Tribunalione of Naples' oldest streets. As you take in the elegance of the crumbling buildings lining the alleyway, your guide will reveal all about the incredible Greek and Roman legacy of the Italian city.

Reaching the quaint Piazza San Gaetano, you'll be struck by the sheer size of the San Paolo Maggiore Basilica, an enormous church that seems very out of place in the narrow labyrinthine streets of Naples Old Town.

The next stop will be outside the Naples Cathedral. Did you know this church is built on top of a temple dedicated to the Greek god Apollo? Not far from here, you'll see Piazza Gerolomini and Via Spaccanapoli, a historic street that divides Naples in two.

Immerse yourself in local culture getting lost in the Pignasecca Market and the Spanish Quarter, before admiring the impressive Piazza del Plebiscito, home to the iconic Royal Palace and the Basilica of San Francesco di Paola.

Your free walking tour will come to an end at Castel Nuovo, a medieval castle that has become a symbol of the city, at 12 midday.
