Spaccanapoli

Spaccanapoli, with its perfect linearity, runs through the city of Naples from north to south. Called "Lower Decumanus", it is a main road of Naples’ old town centre and is one of the city’s most important streets. The decumanus is divided into three sections: the first section starts from Piazza del Gesù Nuovo and continues along the current Via Benedetto Croce, passing through Piazza San Domenico Maggiore, Piazza Nilo and largo Corpo di Napoli. The central section is via San Biagio dei Librai and via Giudecca Vecchia, a part of Forcella, after crossing the intersection with via Duomo, is the final stretch of the decumanus.

San Gregorio Armeno

Via San Gregorio Armeno is the street in Naples’ old town centre, renowned worldwide for its artisan Nativity scene workshops. Neapolitan Nativity scenes date back to the late 18th century and are gathered together in this narrow street, which is basically where artisan workshops display their figures for the nativity scenes, both traditional and original ones, and now do so all year round.

New Castle - Angevin Keep

The construction of the Angevin Keep started in 1279, during the reign of Charles I of Anjou, on designs by the French architect Pierre de Chaule. Due to its strategic position, the new castle was not just a royal residence but also a fortress. Since the very start it has been known as “New Castle”, to distinguish it from the older castles of Ovo and Capuano. During the reign of Robert of Anjou, the Castle became a hub of culture and hosted artists, doctors and scholars, including Giotto, Petrarch and Boccaccio.

Castle of the Egg

The castle you see today is the result of 1,000 years of military occupation, going back to the Norman period. The Aragonese gave the fortress its current form in the 16th century: before then, it housed a monastic community. Its name originates from an ancient legend, according to which the Latin poet Virgil hid an egg in the building’s dungeons that kept the entire fortress standing. Had the egg broken, not only would the castle have collapsed, but a series of disasters would have destroyed the city of Naples.

Capodimonte Museum

The construction of the Royal Palace of Capodimonte started in 1738, in the area adjacent to the Forest of the same name, where in 1734 Charles VII, king of Naples and Sicily, decided to establish a large game reserve and a Court residence, in a fine location that offered a sweeping view of the bay and the city below. The main exhibits of the Capodimonte museum include the Farnese collections, which feature some of the biggest names of Italian and international art (among whom Raphael, Titian, Parmigianino, Bruegel the Elder, El Greco), and the Bourbon collection. The Museum extends over three floors: the first floor houses, other than the historic Apartment, the rich Farnese collection; the Neapolitan gallery is located on the second floor; the third floor showcases the collection of 19th-century and contemporary art.

Royal Palace

The works for the construction of the Royal Palace began in the 17th century, under the reign of the Spanish viceroys, on designs by the Neapolitan architect Domenico Fontana. The majority of the palace was completed in two years, although a certain number of features (e.g. the staircase) were added 50 years later. The Bourbon kings extended the building to the east in the mid-18th century, adding niches to the facade. The interior of the palace took on its current Neoclassical form under the French rule in the early 19th century; the hanging gardens and the statues of the kings of Naples were added later that century. The Royal Palace also houses the National Library with its vast reading rooms and collections of manuscripts and musty books, some of which date back to the 5th century.

MANN - National Archaeological Museum of Naples

The National Archaeological Museum of Naples boasts the richest and most precious collection of archaeological artworks and artefacts in Italy and is considered one of the most important archaeological museums in the world, if not the most important with regard to the history of the Roman era. The museum is made up of three main sections: the Farnese collection (consisting of finds from Rome and its neighbouring areas), the Pompeii collections (with finds from the area of the Vesuvius, mainly part of the Bourbon collections), and the Egyptian collection, which is the second most important in Italy after the collection of the Egyptian Museum of Turin. These and other sectors of the museum consist of private collections, such as the Borgia, Santangelo, Stevens and Spinelli collections.

Catacombs of San Gaudioso

Under the Basilica of Santa Maria della Sanità, the core of the district with the same name, lies what was the second most important early Christian cemetery in the city. Connected with the hill of Capodimonte in Roman times and used as water cisterns, these labyrinthine catacombs started being used as burial grounds from the 5th century onwards. In 452, the burial of San Gaudioso – a North African bishop and hermit – turned the site into an important sanctuary.

Underground Naples

For many years, Naples’ deep underground was the source of the tufa used to build the city, thus creating underground recesses, caves and galleries that tell a story that runs parallel to that of overground Naples. In the underground city people lived a different life, taking advantage of its recesses in a thousand ways, also using it as invaluable shelter during the bombings of the Second World War.
