August 6, 2021 Mollie Coke

Romantic Naples, two hours south of Rome, is the largest city in southern Italy. It has some of the world's best opera and theater houses and is often called an open-air museum, due to its many historic statues and monuments. Join families on promenade as the sun sets on the Bay of Naples. View finds from Pompeii and Herculaneum, destroyed by Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D., at the Museo Archeologico Nazionale or revel in the art and architecture of Museo Cappella Sansevero, built in the late 1500s.

Sant'Anna dei Lombardi (Monteoliveto)

The church of Monteoliveto, or Sant'Anna dei Lombardi, is known for its quantity and quality of Renaissance artworks, such as those by tuscans Benedetto da Maiano and Antonio Rossellino, together with famed frescos by Giorgio Vasari within the Sagrestia Vecchia that make the Church one of the most relevant examples of Tuscan Renaissance in Naples. It’s also important to mention the Compianto sul Cristo Morto, a statuesque group by Guido Mazzoni from Modena. Guided Tours of the Museum are organized by the Social Cooperative ParteNeapolis.

We knew nothing about the church but were introduced to it by a couple of young stuff members that were promoting it outside. The church seems pretty forgettable until you reach the last chapel, a beauty all covered in frescoes by Giorgio Vasari,  the illustrious tuscan artist from 1500s. Worth the visit.

Galleria Borbonica

Enchanting scenery that unfolds to the eyes of visitors, a secret place full of history and magic atmosphere.An emotional journey that conducts visitors in the new section of the underground of Naples. It is situated in Vico del Grottone 4, from to 150 mt. to Plebiscito Square. Until a few years ago it wasa veterinary laboratory, now is the entrance of the Bourbon Tunnel. A staircase with 8 ramps, 33 yards deep descending into the belly of Chiaia. The second entry is in Via Domenico Morelli,40, through the crosswalk of “Quick parking”.The Tunnel was built in 1853 by Ferdinand II of Bourbon, who, concerned about the outbreak of rebellion, he asked for an escape from the Royal Palace to the barrack in Via della Pace, now Via Morelli. The work was uncompleted and, during the second World War, was used by residents of the area as a military hospital, later becoming the Hall Judicial Deposit.The war left its mark even in the subsoil. That’s way there are handwrite, folding beds, messages of wish and desolation of those who lived it and still maintains its memory. Along the tunnel thereare also the evidences, 530 meters, where visitors can discover the history of real life. Through the spacious streets, it’s easy reachable the network of tunnels and cisterns of seventeenth-century,large buildings, where worked the "pozzari", the only connoisseur of Naples underground.The show is stunning, but that's not finished. On Via Morelli appear statues dating back to fascist period and many cars and motorcycles, abandoned for years, freed from piles of rubbish, arranged and illuminated ad hoc for the route.Nothing is left to chance, even lighting, perfectly integrated with the path of the visitors.Since today everything is possible to visit. Five years ago the scenery was completely different.Rubbish, degradation, wastes of all kinds covered the reliquaries.

Napulitanata

Napulitanata is a concert hall dedicated to Neapolitan Music Heritage, especially to Canzone Napoletana and Tarantella. Everything comes from the need to set up a place in the heart of Naples where everyone can have full access to the great local music heritage in an experiential way, a sort of model after the Spanish Tablao or the Portuguese Case de Fados.

Piazza del Plebiscito

This square of the people (plebiscito) is the largest in Naples and the site of two admirable monuments of the city: the Naples Royal Palace and the Church of San Francesco di Paola.

This huge square free from traffic is sparse and surrounded by historic buildings that are too beautiful to ignore. The kids loved running around the huge square (not too many places you can do that in Naples) whilst we admired the majestic buildings and statues.

Teatro di San Carlo

The Teatro di San Carlo was designed by the architects Giovanni Antonio Medrano and Angelo Carasale for the monarch since Charles wanted a new and larger theatre for Naples to replace the old and dilapidated Teatro San Bartolomeo of 1621. On 12 February 1816 the San Carlo was destroyed by fire. The Theatre was re-designed by the architect Antonio Niccolini and rebuilt within ten months on order of King Ferdinand IV. In 1845 there was additional refurbishment and, by 1854, the theatre's interior appearance changed to the now-traditional red and gold.Now carefully restored to its former splendour, the San Carlo is the oldest working theatre in Europe.

Grand, grand opera house, one of the oldest in the world. Hard to believe it was built in a few months in 1737. Its architecture is perfect with the foyer, balcony outstanding in enhancing the facade.. the royal box is bijou. Sitting here for a concert is a dream come true.

Via San Gregorio Armeno

The tradition of representing the Holy Family as true art lives on in this narrow street, which is crowded on both sides with hundreds of artisan workshops with colorful displays of Nativity scenes.

Reviewed By Stardoe

I'd heard about this street and went especially to see it. It did not disappoint, but I was very suprised at how narrow it is and how crowded. Most of the time we were like sardines. The shops are full of wonderful nativitities and all the separate ornaments that allow people to build their own. Nativities with moving parts are very popular and there was a huge variety ranging from about 25 euros well into the hundreds. The seperate ornaments start at about 4 euros for the really tiny ones. If you plan to build your own nativity, take plenty of cash as the variey of ornaments is massive and you won't be able to stop at just the main ones. The street is quite long so if you want to have a really good look in all or most of the shops, you need at least an hour or more, especially if it's really crowded.
