Naples from Cruise Port and Tour of Pompeii includes all the following sites:

Cappella San Severo & Spaccanapoli

To begin with, follow your private certified guide in the heart of Naples, Spaccanapoli, the street that splits the city center. You will reach San Severo Chappel, a Naple must-see attraction housing the most incredibly sculpted statues in the world. Even if the Veiled Christ is the most renowned, others will capture your attention. Before leaving the Chapel and its treasures, your guide will unveil the secrets of the Anatomical Machines, the skeletons of a man and a woman showing their arteriovenous system. The Chapel requires an advanced booking; if there is no availability or the site is closed, you will visit the famous Santa Chiara Gothic Complex.

Santa Chiara was built on roman ruins in the 14th century by Queen Sancha of Majorca and her husband, King Robert Anjou, the Wise. The rests of the roman bath are visible during the visit. The complex is also famous for its cloister. Its frescoed portico encloses a magnificent architecture of octagonal pillars and benches coated with majolica ceramic with floral decorations.

San Gregorio Armeno

In the meantime, the tour brings you through tiny alleyways, bringing you to a gorgeous atmosphere with infinite stalls with Christmas statues and decorations. Artisanal shops display typical souvenirs such as good luck symbols and Pulcinella.

Castel Nuovo (Maschio Angioino)

Your driver will lead you and your guide to the Castel Nuovo, known as Maschio Angioino (visit from outside).

The legend of the holy grail is enshrined in the walls of this medieval fortress, rich with symbols and a symbol of Naples itself.

Piazza Del Plebiscito

The tour continues with one of the most photographed squares of Italy, Piazza del Plebiscito, with the unmistakable dome and colonnades of the church of San Francesco di Paola opposite the Royal Palace.

Adjacent to the Square, you will see two other important buildings. The first is Teatro San Carlo, Naples Opera House, commissioned by the Bourbon King Charles III of Naples.
The second one is Galleria Umberto I, another architectural must-see of Naples. This elegant shopping galley of the 19th century is richly decorated with stuccoes and mosaics enlighted by its iron and glass ceiling.

Castel Dell’Ovo

Finally, you will reach Naples seafront for an enchanting walk before reaching Castel Dell’Ovo (visit from outside). The castle, dominating the gulf, dates back to the 12th century Normann domination. Your guide will tell you how legends and history contribute to the charm of this iconic building.


Nobody stops in Naples and leaves it before tasting its famous and delicious pizza. Nevertheless, the area offers many restaurants, fast food, and pizzerias.

Naples to Pompeii

After the one-hour lunch break, your driver and guide will pick you up to go to Pompeii archaeological park and enjoy visiting the best preserved ancient roman city.

Expect detailed stories of those who inhabited the town and were suddenly covered beneath the plumes of burning ash, stopping time all of a sudden and preserving the ancient city for us to discover it!

Pompeii was an immense market town and the favored resort for most wealthy Romans. With beautiful baths and lavishly decorated villas and houses, it is clear the Romans lived well. Moreover, the bakeries, mills, snack outlets, laundrette, temples, theatres, and the oldest amphitheater known to man – dating back to 80 BC – suggest the population understood how to look after themselves.

We suggest avoiding strollers and using a baby sling instead.
