About
Welcome to one of the most ancient cities of the World! With your Local Guide, you’ll walk through the old town of Naples: from Piazza Bellini, you’ll reach the Music Academy and Via dei Tribunali, the upper Decumano of the ancient Neapolis: the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore alla Pietrasanta, with its ancient tower bell, Sansevero Chapel, one of the most fascinating places of Naples: the lower Church of Purgatorio ad Arco. Few steps far, the Basilica of San Lorenzo Maggiore, in its Gothic majesty, hiding even a portion of the greek city! We’ll walk to Duomo at the end: the Cathedral of Naples preserves the Holy Blood of San Gennaro, the Patron Saint of the city and of all the Neapolitan spread around the world! We can wait to show you how wondeful, unique and special our city can be: it will be unforgettable! * tickets to Sansevero Chapel and Purgatorio ad Arco are not included in the price; to visit Sansevero Chapel you need the reservation tickets in high season.

A great walking tour through the old city of Naples
Sep 2020
Raffaele was very knowledgable and his passion for his home city is evident!

We stopped at many places we would’ve walked passed if we went on our own.

It’s these stops that get you to understand the history, the passion the people have for their city and how vibrant it is.

We had a great tour. Would recommend this to anyone young or old.

My favorite Italian Tour !
Jun 2020 • Family
My family's day in Naples with Raffaele was their FAVORITE part of their trip! He is the BEST guide! My children LOVED hearing all about Naples' past, and seeing all the fun and hidden spots! He showed us a church where his friends were excavating and doing art restoration, which I found so fascinating! He made the city of Naples come alive for us!
He is also an archeologist, and a true expert on the city, which made the tour very interesting and educational. I will be booking another tour with him when I visit Herculaneum, and will DEFINITELY
be recommending his tours!

Unforgettable tour of Napoli Old Town
Sep 2019 • Friends
Cannot recommend this experience enough; absolutely the best way to see Napoli old town and such a personal, friendly, welcoming experience. We felt we were being welcomed home! We had a private tour with Raffaele and it was a truly fantastic 2.5 hours.

5 stars! Highly recommend, best tour guide ever.
Aug 2019
We have done dozens of private tours over the years. Raffaele is one of the best guides, if not the best, guide we’ve ever had. He is a qualified Archaeologist having recently completed his dissertation in Archaeology on the ancient amphoras.
Prior to arriving into Naples I corresponded with Raffaele many times to ensure we had a customized tour. He was very patient and spent a lot of time ensuring the tour he had organised was what we wanted.
We met him in Naples in early August, for a half day tour. He knows all there is to know about the history of Naples but also all the extra things you would never find by yourself. There seemed to be a surprise or a story along every narrow lane-way or behind every corner, it was fantastic!
He knows the history, the sites, everything. We were randomly asking him general questions and he amazed us with his general knowledge including specific dates.
We saw unbelievable architecture including some of the most beautiful churches ever. We explored unusual and unknown places like the Neapolitan underground & it was great looking at treasure in art galleries.
We can’t think of a better person to have showed us around Naples. Raffaele is very patient and kind. He customized the tour to suit us. The tour he designed for us was exactly what we were hoping for. He even suggested restaurants for us to try after the tour, including the best pizza (and it was) and he provided directions as well.
What was really kind of him is that he gave us his personal cell phone number in case we needed any help while we were in Naples.
A true gentleman and an excellent tour guide. We just wished we had booked a longer tour as the time flew by.
I rate Raffaele’s tour 5 stars, highly recommend!

Historical Naples Walking Tour
Apr 2019 • Friends
My friend and I joined this walking tour within a few hours of landing which set us up to enjoy our stay in historic Napoli. The tour provided us with an introduction to Napoli’s complex and long history that can be evidenced in the architecture that we would walk through every day! Our guide provided insight into unique elements of Napoli’s culture, both historical and contemporary, that we would never have learned about on our own which brought the history to life for us.

Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable about local dining and sites throughout Compania which helped make our stay even better!
