Guided Tour The Origins Of Naples, From Castel Dell'ovo To The Maschio Angioino

The "Origins" itineraries offer the opportunity to show you and discover  the most fascinating places of Naples history: an over two thousand years story that begins with the legend of a mermaid, Parthenope, who abandoned herself into the waves to ship where  Castel dell'Ovo rises.

The castle is also known for keeping the egg (uovo in Italian) that, thanks to the wizard Virgilius, decides about the destiny of the city.

From the seafront we will move to visit one of the symbol of Naples: the New Castle, wellknown under the name of Maschio Angioino, a wonderful Castle that overview the Gulf and then we will go on having a look to the San Carlo Theatre, the most ancient theatre of Europe and finish the first part of our tour in Plebiscito’s square, where the Royal palace is located and we could admire the statues of the most important king of Naples telling about their stories.
