Stop At: Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli, Piazza Museo Nazionale 19, 80135, Naples Italy

With an extensive collection of artefacts from Pompeii and Herculaneum, Naples National Archaeological Museum (MANN) is one of the oldest and most important of its kind in the world. The National Archaeological Museum plays an important role in the archaeological heritage of Naples and Italy as a whole, and its diverse exhibitions are full of fascinating artefacts, making it an entertaining visit for most travelers to the city.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Spaccanapoli, Via Benedetto Croce, Naples Italy

Straight, narrow and packed with charm, Spaccanapoli is one of Naples’ main thoroughfares, defying the labyrinthine lanes of the rest of the historic center.

Spaccanapoli dividing Naples

Translated literally, Spaccanapoli means “Naples splitter”, as the long, straight thoroughfare seems to divide the historic center of the city in two. In reality, it’s a nickname given to a sequence of streets that cut straight through the winding streets of the old town: Via Benedetto Croce, Via San Biagio dei Librai and Via Vicaria Vecchia.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Via dei Tribunali, Decumano Maggiore, 80138 – 80139, Naples Italy

Via dei Tribunali was the main decumanus, or east-west street, of ancient Greek and Roman Naples, and it remains one of the city’s most important avenues. Running parallel to the equally famous Spaccanapoli, the Via dei Tribunali dates back to the Ancient Greek and Roman city of Neapolis.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Via San Gregorio Armeno, 83018, Naples Italy

When Christmas comes, the streets are full of lights and the shops are decorated for this occasion. In the heart of Naples, in the historical center, there is one street that is more beautiful and shinier than the others during Christmas time. It’s via San Gregorio Armeno, which is also known as the street of cribs (via dei presepi).

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Duomo di Napoli, Via Duomo 149, 80138, Naples Italy

Built between 1299 and 1314, the Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary, also called the Duomo, is Naples’ main church and home to important artistic, cultural and historic heritage. Probably the most unusual item in the Duomo is the vial of the blood of Saint Januarius (San Gennaro in Italian), to whom the cathedral is also dedicated. Believe it or not, the saint’s blood is said to turn from solid to liquid during certain festivities … you can judge that for yourself!

Duration: 20 minutes
