    Enjoy an enlightening tour of Naples by visiting Spaccanapoli, the street that divides the city, and by savoring folded pizza, a classic Neapolitan treat.


    After departing from the pier, you will begin a panoramic drive around Naples, taking in the views from locales such as Posillipo Hill in one of the city’s most affluent areas. Along the way, you will pass the imposing Castle Nuovo.


    While parts of it date to the 13th century, it is still known as the new castle to distinguish it from the famed Egg Castle, which began as a 1st-century Roman villa. Castle Nuovo’s five towers make it one of Naples’ most recognizable landmarks. You will also see the Egg Castle, which holds a commanding position on the sea.


    In time, you will reach Spaccanapoli, a long street whose name means “Naples splitter,” a reference to it seeming to divide the city in two. Here, you will visit the Jesuit church Gesú Nuovo and the Church of Santa Chiara, which was founded in 1310 and features an austere Provencal-Gothic style. Much of Santa Chiara had to be rebuilt after World War II.


    For an even more authentic glimpse into daily life, you will walk through the narrow streets of Old Town, which UNESCO has declared a Cultural Heritage site. As you will discover, there is no better setting to eat portafoglio or folded pizza, as the dish was invented in Naples. A cup of fresh espresso at a nearby café standing at the counter as Neapolitan does will top off the experience.

    Admire the most breathtaking views of Naples from high above the city in historical San Martino, from which you will descend on foot and by funicular.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a picturesque drive to Vomero, one of the more prosperous and fashionable districts of Naples. From this elevated plateau, you will enjoy sweeping views of the city that only improve as you hike up to San Martino.


    The highest point in Vomero, San Martino exudes a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere. You might think of it as an oasis from the urban sprawl below. During free time, you will enjoy spectacular views of its star-shaped fortress Castel Sant’Elmo and the former 14th-century Carthusian monastery that now houses the esteemed National Museum of San Martino.


    More fabulous vistas await you while walking downhill along the Pedamentina, a set of several hundred steps dating to the 1500s. Although outdoor staircases and steps are abundant in hilly Naples, few compare to the Pedamentina for being scenic.


    In time, you will reach Corso Vitttorio Emanuele, a charming street where you will hop aboard a funicular and continue your descent. While riding the funicular, you will be treated to even more magnificent views of Naples and its crescent-shaped bay


    You will disembark in Piazza Augusteo, where you will have the option of returning to the cruise ship with the guide or remaining in Naples and returning later on your own.

    Take a trip back in time as you visit the well preserved ruins of Pompeii and enjoy the flavors of Sorrento.

    Become immersed in the world of pasta through a behind-the-scenes tour of one of Italy’s oldest pasta factories, followed by a delightful pasta lunch. The venue for this enlightening experience will be Gragnano, an ancient city where durum wheat and semolina have been cultivated for thousands of years. It also has the ideal climate for air-drying pasta, a practice that is still observed to ensure quality. As you will learn while browsing an ancient mill and museum, pasta-making is a complex process that can’t be rushed. In fact, to achieve its Protected Designation of Origin status, Gragnano pasta must dry gradually for as many as four days and be extruded through a bronze die that imparts a rough texture that helps the pasta sauce cling to the noodle. The results are well worth the effort as you will discover while savoring a lunch of Gragnano pasta and locally made accompaniments.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Learn more than you ever imagined about pasta in Gragnano, a city synonymous with it.
    • See how Gragnano pasta must be made to retain a Protected Designation of Origin status.
    • Savor lunch that includes a Gragnano pasta dish and other Italian specialties.


    HELPFUL HINTS
    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing.
    • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.

    After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a leisurely drive along the Bay of Naples and on to Sorrento, a city of Renaissance palazzi and charming pedestrian lanes. A meandering walk will take you to a woodworking studio, where craftsmen will likely demonstrate the art of intarsia or wood inlay, which has long been associated with Sorrento. Free time follows, during which you might browse the museums and boutiques. Ceramic tableware, casual fashions and intarsia jewelry boxes are among the most popular items.


    Then, it’s on to Pompeii, a Roman town forever known for the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius that buried it under ash and pumice in 79 A.D. After free time to explore on your own and perhaps watch artisans create cameos, you will tour the ruins. The excavations have unearthed a snapshot of life here nearly 2,000 year ago. Buildings are largely intact, frescoes adorn the villas and everyday objects are scattered about, just as they were when the volcano erupted. Expect to see ancient baths, temples and residences with intricate mosaic floors. It’s an eye-opening look into ancient life, one you will remember long after returning to Naples.
