Take this special chance and visit two World Heritage Sites in just one tour! We will pick you up at your pier and will take you to discover the famous sights of Caserta and Naples.
The Royal Palace of Caserta and its gardens, also famous as ‘The Versailles of Italy’ are treasures of amazing splendor, just outside the city of Naples. Once a private home of the Bourbon Kings, the Palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997 and was planned by the architect Luigi Vanvitelli. Merge yourself in the Bourbon Age: just imagine being a duke or a duchess invited to court by the Kings and climb the majestic Royal Staircase to come in the presence of the monarchs, waiting for you in the Palatine Chapel… In your way, let you be astonished by the copious succession of frescoes, sculptures, stuccoes, flooring and inlays which adorn the royal apartment, surrounding you. To complete your tour as best as you can, take your time for a stroll in the sumptuous surrounding park, typical expression of the Italian garden, rich of flowers, fields and a triumph of waterfalls and fountains.
Set in the iconic sight of Naples’Bay, Naples is undoubtedly one of the most symbolic ‘postcards’ from Italy.
With its historic centre, composed of different neighborhoods, funneling down the hills to the port, the town has become a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995. Stroll back in time from the Greek-Roman alleys and the main arterial road of Spaccanapoli in the ancient area, to the Medieval Age, represented by famous churches as the Cathedral or Santa Chiara Church and castles as Castel Nuovo e Castel dell’Ovo. End up your time travel with a cup of traditional espresso coffee and a glance to the 18th century San Carlo Theater, Italy’s oldest opera house and to the 19th century Piazza Plebiscito, one of the biggest squares in Italy. Yes, Naples can be considered as a sort of living museum but, while there, don’t forget to soak up the energy and warmth of life, spreading from the inhabitants of a very living city, which adapts itself to changing times.
