Meet your guide for a 2.5-hour art and architecture tour in Gesù Nuovo square, right in front of the Church of Gesù Nuovo in central Naples. This tour visiting three of the city's most magnificent churches departs at 10am or 3pm.First stop is the Church of Gesù Nuovo, originally a palace built in 1470 but sold a century later to the Jesuits who converted it into a church. Inside, you will see rich Renaissance and Baroque style, including work from artists such as Francesco Solimena. After a short walk, explore the church of Santa Chiara, the largest Gothic church in Naples, that dates back to the early 14th century. After a stroll down Naples' lively central boulevard, Spaccanapoli, you will arrive on San Domenico Maggiore square, home to a 13th century church of the same name. Your guide will explain the building's fascinating history and lead the way into the beautiful sacristy, home to 45 sepulchers. After this art and architecture walk, the tour finishes with a tasty tradition of Naples: pizza. "Pizza a portafoglio", a folded tomato pizza, is a popular street food in the city.
