Naples Mysteries and Legends Tour

At 9  am, we will meet up in Piazza del Gesù Nuovo square and start walking through the historical center of Naples. Along the way, you will discover goblins, fairies, miracles, and many legends of Neapolitan popular culture.

In the lively historical center of Naples, we will discover numerous stalls selling amulets, traditionally used to attract the munaciello. We'll reveal who this mischievous goblin is and what 'powers' he claims to have. We will also tell you about the Bella Mbriana, a benevolent spirit that helps to maintain serenity in families. 

As we walk through the city center, we will come across the elegant church of San Gregorio Armeno, famous for the miracle of Saint Patricia. We will visit the cloister of this sanctuary to contemplate its beautiful baroque fountain and its trees. We will learn all about the history of the saint before heading to the magnificent cathedral of Naples.

As we contemplate the wonderful façade of the main temple of Naples we will talk to you about Saint Gennaro, the patron saint of the city, whose mortal remains can predict catastrophes. We will tell you about this deep-rooted belief while visiting his chapel. This room, known as the Treasure of St. Gennaro, is full of countless pieces of art that have been donated by princes and popes for centuries.

We will leave the temple and end the tour arriving back at the original starting point at 1 pm.
