About experience

• Once you meet up with your escort driver off to the neighborhood of Vomero. On a hilltop of Naples, upscale and leafy Vomero is dotted with gelaterias, alfresco cafes and refined Italian restaurants. Chain and department stores cluster around Piazza Vanvitelli. The Certosa e Museo di San Martino has frescoes, paintings and sculpture in a former monastery with a baroque church, while star-shaped Castel Sant’Elmo fortress has expansive views over the city and Gulf of Naples.   The first things visitors will notice when traveling around Vomero is the view. As the geography of the area is rather hilly, expansive sights of Naples, the Bay of Naples, and the historic Mount Vesuvius in the distance are all captured in intense detail. Whether during a clear day or as the sun sets, the views found here of historic and new buildings will leave anyone in awe. Vomero has plenty of authentic and classy Italian styles to intrigue any fashionista. Explore the number of shops found among the hilly streets of this neighborhood. Check out the London store, or head over and explore one of the many vintage clothing stores. The variety of clothing to be discovered among the alleys and streets is limitless, so get ready for some real retail therapy – Vomero style. 
• Lunch. Every region in Italy offers a unique spin on that traditional Italian dish that has entranced people for so long and Vomero is no exception. The area offers any number of family-owned, friendly pizzerias to satisfy not just the hunger for excellent pizza but also a desire to get a true taste of the neighborhood and area. Head over to Pizzeria Vomero and settle in for some hot and fresh pizza that’s truly top-notch. The guide will make recommendations where to have lunch.   Speaking of food, Vomero has a very vibrant and bustling market where visitors will come away with a number of fresh fruits and vegetables. Visit the market Monday through Saturday and find fantastic deals on cheeses, meats and a diverse selection of other household goods. The vendors are all local and willing to make deals that will leave customers both happy and healthy. 
• Villa Floridiana/Castle of St. ElmoFerdinand IV’s wedding gift to the duchess of Florida, Villa Floridiana is a beautiful open public park. After Ferdinand’s purchase of the mansion, the gardens were planted in their current manner and offer a wonderful environment for walking and enjoying the outdoors. The actual villa, built in the early 1800s in a neoclassical style, is used now by the Martina National Museum of Ceramics, and houses a variety of porcelain and majolica works. A medieval fortress with an extensive political history dating all the way back to 1275, the Castle of St. Elmo has gone through years of change, including years of destruction, reconstruction and the addition of new parts. 
• End of the tour. The escort guide/driver will return to the location pick up between the hours 4-5pm.
