Get ready for an epic pedaling journey around Naples, as you embark on a guided bicycle tour to discover the city?s art, history and Neapolitan culture. After a short walk through the bustling city center, you?ll meet an expert rider guide and hop on your bicycle. Here?s where the real adventure begins: travel on two wheels along dedicated bike paths and regular city streets, relishing an up-close view of the Gulf of Naples and notable landmarks along the way. You?ll encounter a bevy of sights during your ride: the small fishing village of Borgo Marinari, where sirens seduced Ulysses; Piazza del Plebiscito, Naples? most famous square; the renowned San Carlo Opera House, the world?s oldest continuously active public opera venue; the Church of St. Francis, with its grand portico and stately dome; and imposing Castel Nuovo, a medieval 12th-century fortress. Along the waterfront, behold the Castle of the Egg, a 12th-century seaside fortification built by the Normans and named after a story which, according to legend, tells of the Roman poet Virgil planting a magical egg into the castle?s foundation. Enjoy a stop for refreshments during the trip to rejuvenate your energy before heading back to port.
