San Gregorio Armeno – Your walking tour explores the heart of the historic city, at the center of which lies this district surrounding the cathedral. San Gregorio Armeno is traditionally home to Naples’ artists, artisans and Medieval guilds.
San Gennaro Cathedral – Largely rebuilt after a devastating earthquake in the 15th century, the magnificent cathedral boasts Perugino’s painting of the “Assumption,” Gothic crypts including the tomb of Pope Innocence IV, masterpieces of Baroque painting and the truly extraordinary Treasury of San Gennaro Museum.
San Gennaro Treasury Museum – Housed in a chapel adorned with frescoes by Giordano, the museum exhibits masterworks from the San Gennaro Treasury. The truly astonishing Treasury is a repository that includes paintings, illuminated manuscripts, jewelry, and precious liturgical objects in gold and silver donated to the cathedral over the course of nine centuries by Popes, kings, nobles and notables.
Pizza was invented in Naples in 1830. Sample the real deal at a pizzeria, where the traditional thin-crust pie is baked in a high-temperature wood-burning oven.
