"See Naples and then die", goes an old Italian adage, to say that, before leaving this world, one must have been to Naples at least once.
This phrase contains all the sense of what Naples means to Neapolitans and Italians: a unique city, which you must have seen at least once. Naples is unique in many ways: it is rich in history, art, tradition, and enchanting landscapes. Naples has the charm and modernity of the big cities, but it is at the same time popular and traditional; it is a city by the sea, but also a truly fascinating hilly area, it has majestic and evocative palaces, such as the Royal Palace or the San Carlo Theatre, but it is also full of truly enchanting working-class neighbourhoods. Naples is a city of contrasts: rich and poor, majestic, and humble, cultured, and popular. A large part of Italian literature, music and theatre was born here, as well as many artists, writers, musicians, and actors. Visiting this cosmopolitan, diverse, and picturesque city can be a unique experience.
But Naples' contradictions also include the traffic, which is not exactly trouble-free, especially for first-time visitors. That is why the best way to visit is with an organised tour such as the one organised by HABI. This is not just an ordinary tour, of course, but the possibility of reaching Naples from Rome in an amazingly comfortable car driven by a driver who will remain at your disposal for the entire time. Your driver will park in a convenient location from where you can easily reach the attractions of the historic centre. He will also be able to give you all the information you need to make the most of the four hours you will spend in this wonderful city. Depending on your interests, he will be able to direct you to the Capodimonte Museum or the Royal Palace or perhaps to visit underground Naples, a fascinating 'city under the city' made up of very ancient underground passages. You can visit the Chapel of San Severo, which houses the famous sculpture of the 'Veiled Christ'. Or you can simply stroll through the historical centre, one of the largest in the world, with its intricate streets, narrow alleys, and spacious boulevards. You can visit the Duomo, where the blood of San Gennaro is kept, or take a walk in the very elegant corner of Naples, the Lungomare Caracciolo (the seafront). In short, a city with a thousand faces, which you can visit in the best possible way thanks to the comfort provided by our HABI tour and the excellent local knowledge of the driver who will be at your disposal.
Do not forget the Neapolitan gastronomy either: in this city, pizza was born and still today the pizzerias in the centre offer the best quality in the world. But that is not all: Neapolitan cuisine and pastries are among the tastiest in Italy. If you decide to stop here to eat, your driver will be able to recommend quality locations where you will have an unforgettable gastronomic experience. Our HABI Naples discovery tour does not stop in Naples but continues to Pompeii.
Already in Naples you can see the silhouette of Vesuvius, the volcano that in 79 A.D. destroyed Pompeii, the advanced and elegant Roman city just a few kilometres from present-day Naples. It is a unique place in the world, an immense archaeological site where life stopped that night in 79 A.D., overwhelmed and buried under a pile of ash and lapilli. Walking through the well-preserved ruins of the city gives us a vivid picture of life in Pompeii two thousand years ago and is a totally unique opportunity. Our tour requires your driver to park in the immediate vicinity of the entrance to the archaeological site, where you can spend two hours. It will be two unforgettable hours! After filling your eyes with beauty and history, our tour comes to an end. You will depart for Rome in our comfortable car and reach the capital in approximately three hours. On the way, your driver will ensure a smooth and worry-free journey that will allow you to look back on the images and feelings that this incredibly special day has given you.
The tour includes fuel, motorway tolls and parking costs. The total duration of the tour is twelve hours, but it is possible to extend the stops in Naples or Pompeii at a cost of 45 euros per hour. Do not give up the chance to explore one of Italy's most fascinating territories in absolute comfort: choose HABI!
