[VIRTUAL] Still Traveling: Neglected Napoli

Date: June 7, 2021Time: 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

Let us Zoom you to Naples, Italy to meet with our local, professional guide on interesting “trips" in this gem of a misunderstood city.

Grab a cappuccino and let Trip Leader James Sokol zoom you away on four virtual “trips” to the capital of the province of Campania and the third-largest city in Italy.

Napoli (re: Naples) has been overlooked by many visitors for years. Some thought it was dangerous, others heard it was uninteresting. Today, it is neither! Naples is a vibrant city, steeped in history and traditions.

Meet our fantastic, professional, local guide and go on four "trips" to uncover and discover the treasures of this neglected southern Italian gem!

Our "Trips" Include:

  • Overview & Landscapes (June 7): Meet our delightful guide and join her to learn about the origins of the city, which are wrapped up in legends. Get an overview of the various districts in the area and admire its most famous landscapes.
  • The Beating Heart of Naples (June 14): Dive into the heart of the city and "stroll" in this ancient city, where its tidy Greco-Roman street plan is still perfectly in place. Visit highlights of the city, including its imposing cathedral, home of the famous miracle of San Gennaro. Hear about the city's Jewish history.
  • Invitation to Court (June 21): The stars of today's trip are the elegant castles & royal palaces in which kings and queens lived until 1861 when Italy was unified.
  • Street Food Specialties (June 28): Forget Stanley Tucci's visit! Hit the streets with our local guide - a native of Napoli - who not only discusses local culinary specialties, but also shows where to find the best pizza, mozzarella, sfogliatella (a gorgeous local pastry!), and gelato. She'll even share some of her special recipes!
