What people are saying about Castel Nuovo

Italo was our guide and expertly juggled Italian and English throughout the informative and comprehensive tour. (He also assisted a Spanish-soeaking couple with directions in the midst of the tour!) The itinerary included major Neapolitan sites, including Castel Nuovo, Reale di Napoli (Royal Palace of Naples), Galleria Umberto I, Via Toledo, Basilica Di Santa Chiara, Spaccanapoli, and the great reveal of the jaw-dropping underground remains of Neapolis, Napoli's Greek-founded ancestor from the 5th century BCE. Italo provided two opportunities for free time that allowed clients to explore on their own, shop, or sample local gastronomy. He was inviting of questions and clearly has a broad knowledge of and deep passion for his home town. This tour was well worth the money and time.

Interesting and well explained tour! Our Italian guide is very good, ready to answer all our curiosities making us fall in love more and more with this fantastic city and its inhabitants! Congratulations, highly recommended!

Great experience, we would not have known anything about the places we visited, if we hadn't done the tour we probably would not have known we could go in them.

Great sights with a friendly knowledgeable guide. An interesting tour of the city with lots to see.

Marco was friendly, informative, helpful, considerate and made it so pleasant.
