What to expect

A city split in two – you’ll be exploring the ancient and modern sides of the city all in one on this tour. Dive into Underground Naples to discover its historic roots, and see how they intertwine with the lively spirit of modern Naples wandering around the city. Maria Novella, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘Picture this – Greek-Roman vibes, medieval charm, Baroque splendour, and contemporary coolness all rolled into one. Its roots run deep, but the city remains faithful to itself, and that’s what makes Naples so unique!’

You’ll feel Naples’ charm hit you straight away kickstarting your tour at Piazza Bellini. Then, brace yourself for a series of surprises as you navigate the vibrant streets of the city centre. With each twist and turn, you’ll come face to face with hidden gems like the Campanile della Pietrasanta – a quirky medieval bell tower that pops up unexpectedly among Naples’ hustle and bustle. You’ll definitely want to snap up pics of the Chiesa di San Lorenzo, dripping with Baroque beauty. Then, prepare to delve down at Napoli Sotteranea or Underground Naples.

Plummet down into the passageways, tunnels and caverns – with a glimpse of the ancient Roman city beneath your feet. You’ll get to see ancient marketplaces, public buildings and echoes of the Roman Forum. It’s like a visit to Pompeii. Back in the sunshine, soak up the buzz of daily life along Spaccanapoli. These streets ooze with Neapolitan charm – you won’t be able to resist. Wrap up your journey at San Gregorio Armeno and its treasure trove of artisan nativity scenes. Bursting with character, the church provides the perfect backdrop for those Insta-worthy pics.

Nat Geo Day Tour: A Taste of Tramonti, Pizza Making and Wine Tasting

Discover the treasures of Tramonti on this National Geographic Day Tour. The day starts with a scenic ride along the Bay of Naples, under the watchful eye of Mount Vesuvius, leading through Monte Lattari and Valle dei Chiunzi, where the small hamlets of Tramonti await. The world owes its love of pizza to the ancestors of today's residents of Tramonti — it's thanks to them that pizzerias have spread across the globe. Your National Geographic-trained guide will share tales of local culture and history as you weave along the scenic roads towards your first destination. Perched high above the Amalfi Coast, Tramonti beckons with lemon orchards, chestnut trees, and terraced vineyards. Your first stop is the garden of Acarbio, a visionary association committed to reuniting people with tradition and nature that has been promoting the Amalfi Coast's candidature to become a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Here, you'll enjoy a refreshment while discovering some of the ongoing projects, including the revival of the historical Rè Fiascone tomato, an almost-extinct key ingredient for pizza making. It's hard not to be inspired by this dynamic association, and their dedication to preserving the Amalfi Coast's rural heritage and hidden biodiversity, focusing on reviving local agriculture and endangered species. From there, you'll travel to a family-run vineyard, nestled among Tramonti's terraced slopes. Stroll amidst some of Europe's ancient vines, uncovering the secrets to their remarkable resilience. Then, treat your palate to an exquisite wine tasting, savoring the rich flavors of Amalfi Coast wines. The last stop of the tour is a local Agritourism venue, in their rural restaurant, for a hands-on pizza-making workshop led by a skilled pizza chef, who'll guide you through the art of crafting traditional pizzas. The president of the Tramonti Pizzaioli Association — an important national association of around 2000 pizza chefs — will shed light on Tramonti's pivotal role in global pizza history. Finally, relish your culinary creations during a delectable lunch.
