The splendid ‘twin’ of the Galleria monumentale in Milan, it was built in the 19th century in Art Nouveau style, with iron and glass works and a polychrome marble floor. We invite you to discover the different views from the four entrances. Two curiosities: its dimensions are slightly smaller than the Milanese model (175 metres in length against 196) but its dome is higher (57 metres, 10 more than the Milanese model). Another curiosity about the Galleria: for fifty years it was home to the ‘sciuscià’ (Neapolitanisation of the American ‘shoeshine’), the shoeshine boys of the city of Naples as told by post-war cinema.

In the church you can admire one of the finest examples of Neapolitan Baroque, with its furnishings and marble. A special feature of the church is the presence of a bomb miraculously unexploded during the Second World War and now on public display.

“…There is nothing in all Europe, which I do not say approaches this theatre, but gives the faintest idea of it. The eyes are dazzled, the soul ravished…’ (Stendhal, 1817). This gives an idea of the majesty of the opera house par excellence, one of the oldest closed opera houses in Europe and the world still active, founded in 1737, and the largest Italian-style theatre on the peninsula. Given its size, structure and antiquity, it was a model for subsequent theatres in Europe. Simply unique, a must-see.

The imposing Piazza del Pleibiscito is one of the many symbols of Naples and one of the largest in Italy. You can’t help but sweep your gaze from the Royal Palace to the colonnade of the Church of San Francesco di Paola, to the top of its dome. Pushing the view a little further upwards, you will see the Vomero hill, recognisable by the Castel Sant’Elmo and the Certosa di San Martino. Adjacent to the square, the ‘artichoke fountain’ and the Chiesa degli Artisti in Piazza Trieste e Trento, overlooking the National Library and the San Carlo Theatre. In short… you will already feel at home!

Furnished in Art Nouveau style, its interior features late 19th-century stuccoes, statues and paintings by Neapolitan artists; browse through the rooms to admire the furnishings and delightful glass chandeliers. At the Gran Caffè Gambrinus, the practice of ‘suspended coffee’ was born in the second half of the 19th century, which consists of leaving a paid coffee for poor people who cannot buy it and treat themselves to the pleasure of a coffee.

Underground Naples is the hidden part of Naples that we can all see and is one of the top 10 things to see in the city. Today, many underground tourist routes have been recovered, from the Bourbon Tunnel to the Miglio Sacro and the Catacombs of San Gennaro. Greek and Roman stratification is visible in some of the churches on Via dei Tribunali, and each descent into the bowels of Naples is as fascinating as its part in sunlight. We suggest the ‘classic’, with access from Piazza San Gaetano in Via dei Tribunali.

This hidden gem in the heart of Naples is one of the most evocative places in the city. This church, now deconsecrated, is adjacent to the family palace of the Prince of Sansevero, the patron and creator of the chapel’s 18th-century artistic apparatus. There are three masterpieces of sculpture in the chapel that are well worth a visit, including the ‘Veiled Christ’ by Giuseppe Sanmartino, as well as numerous other works of fine or unusual workmanship, such as the ‘anatomical machines’, two totally deconstructed bodies where the entire circulatory system can be observed in great detail.

In San Gregorio Armeno, it is Christmas all year round, even when it is hot and Christmas is far away, you will always find the masters at work constructing the typical cribs and shepherds in terracotta, with attention to every detail, artfully painted and dressed in hand-sewn garments. Walking through these narrow streets, discovering the poetry of the terracotta faces and being able to talk to these artisans is a journey into the tradition of Naples and the proverbial kindness of the Neapolitans, a praise of slowness and the pleasure of socialising.
