PIAZZA DEL PLEBISCITO
Piazza del Plebiscito is the largest square in Naples and one of the largest in Italy. It is located between Borgo Santa Lucia and Piazza Trieste e Trento. In the square we can admire the Royal Palace, built in 1600. In front of the Palace, we can visit the church of San Francesco di Paola, commissioned by the Bourbons: the church was completed in 1846, reflects the neoclassical taste of the time and resembles the central part to the Pantheon and in the colonnade to the basilica of San Pietro.
BASILICA OF SAN LORENZO MAGGIORE
The basilica of San Lorenzo Maggiore is one of the most interesting examples of stratification starting from the Greco-Roman era. In fact, over the centuries the church has undergone numerous changes: the first plant was built by the Franciscans around the end of the thirteenth century, in place of an early Christian basilica. The basilica, as we know it, has a French Gothic style with a single central nave, a beautiful apse and 23 side chapels.
The Floridiana villa, located in the Vomero district, is among the green lungs of Naples. The park is ideal for a stopover: there are numerous green spaces, refreshment points and a breathtaking viewpoint, from which you can admire the sea and the Chiaia district from above. But the Floridiana is not just a park: inside there is the Duca di Martina Museum, which includes one of the largest Italian collections of decorative arts.
SAN GREGORIO ARMENO
San Gregorio Armeno is the most characteristic street in the historic center of Naples. It can be said with certainty that it is the most famous street in the world for the presence of artisans who make shepherds for the nativity scene. Whether it’s summer or winter, there is always a Christmas air. It is said that the crib art of San Gregorio Armeno has remote origins: in fact, in the classical era there stood a temple to Ceres, to which citizens offered small terracotta statuettes as ex-votos, manufactured in nearby shops. Come on, what are you waiting for to go?
The botanical garden is the most important in Italy for the extension and the number of species present. Currently the garden is organized according to an ecological criterion with different areas. We can find the beach, the Mediterranean scrub, a rocky area and a desert area. The Botanical Garden is waiting to be discovered and it’s free!
Castel dell’Ovo is located on the islet of Megaride, in the middle of the sea. The castle is very impressive and enjoys a beautiful view! You absolutely cannot miss it! The area is called Borgo Marinari and is a tourist area. For this reason the few commercial activities are mostly bars and restaurants, but there is no shortage of shops and workshops for boating.
