Naples & Amalfi Coast

Colourful, vibrant, exciting and varied – Naples is one of the most fascinating cities in Italy and in Europe. Simultaneously ancient and modern, welcoming and intimidating, blessed and cursed by its location, the city is loved by many visitors. The historic heart of Naples is compact and can be visited in a day, explored on foot. Here you can see the ancient layout of narrow lanes, visit churches from various historic eras, explore underground labyrinths of ruins, admire artworks including Caravaggio’s Seven Acts of Mercy and the famous statue of a veiled Christ by Giuseppe Sanmartino.

The attached Basilica Santa Restituta is part of an ancient building, and from here you can access Greek and Roman excavations. The Chapel of San Gennaro is the home of the Saint’s blood, kept in phials which dutifully liquify each year, to great rejoicing.
