Hello! I am Emanuele and I was born and live in Naples, I am deeply in love with the whole gulf of which I consider myself a child, I love to get in touch with the contrasting and fragmented realities that characterize the Neapolitan area and in particular my beloved city, just as I love very much travel and discover cultures and customs different from mine. I have been working in tourism and public relations for 10 years, and I have always felt the need to deviate from the way of doing mass tourism, preferring a vision more oriented towards "travelers" rather than "tourists", putting in contact the people with the different colors of local realities and listen to the thousand voices and the thousand stories they tell. I am not a formal guide but rather I consider myself a cultural mediator between the traveler and the world I know, in order to help him feel part of the reality that surrounds him so that he can touch it with his hand, and experience it, rather than looking at it from the outside as in a shop window. I also believe that this is the best way to make everyone's experience more informal, spontaneous and genuine. So what are you waiting for? Are you coming for a friendly walk with me?

Tour description

The area of the Quartieri Spagnoli today remains one of the most authentic in Naples, with its characteristic alleys, street art and the locals, will involve you in a whirlwind of emotions and sensations as only this city can do.

In our walk I will show you the references to characters who have made the history of the city told through local street art, such as Maradona and Totò, I will show you the protagonist places of the stories of the "Quartieri", such as the entrances to the underground tunnels and the historic churches.

We will also get to know the local people, now more and more curious about visitors, observing the particular way of living and listening to some history of the place, between cultural associations and squatted churches, local artisans, tailors and shoemakers who continue to make their jobs in the old way, carrying on centuries of Neapolitan traditions and culture, or simple passers-by with the desire to chat or tell some story.

The Spanish Quarters are rich in life and folklore, they smell of the sea and Vesuvius, and visiting them can be something very distant culturally, but it is also a unique experience for those who want to know one of the most authentic and particular realities of Naples!

Fantástico! La mejor manera de conocer el barrio español de la mano de un autóctono. Sin su guía, serían edificios sin alma, con él las calles son personas e historias...
