Naples by Bike

Ride away into the heart of Naples on a bike and dive into the unique atmosphere this city provides. Explore the beautiful bay, art, history, and Neapolitan traditions with expert bike guides who will take you on a slow, eco-friendly tour through the most beautiful and unique alleys, squares, and breathtaking panoramic views from the old town to the bay.

This comfortable and easy bike guided tour will first take you to the famous shopping gallery, Galleria Umberto, considered a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. While there, make sure you take a close look at the architectural details. Riding along, make your way to the Piazza dei Martiri (Martyrs' Square) where you'll find yourself immersed in history. The famous monument overlooking the square and the lions surrounding it are guaranteed to take you on a symbolic adventure. Located one block away, is the beautiful promenade of Villa Comunale. Considered the most prominent park in Naples, it was built in the late 1700s for members of the royal family, but opened to the public on special holidays, and stretches 1 km through beautiful green areas.

As you continue exploring the views, your guide will take you to your next stop: The Cassa Armonica. This unique nineteenth-century structure, built-in 1877, consists of a circular platform and a two-toned glass dome, which serves to host musical concerts to many local artists. To end the ride through the promenade, you'll stop at the Rotonda Diaz.

Make your way back for a majestic panoramic view of the Castel dell'Ovo. Located on the Islet of Megaride, the Castel dell'Ovo is the oldest standing fort in Naples. While there, you'll ride across to the Borgo Marinari and stop for refreshments (at your own expense). Don't miss the spectacular views overlooking the harbor.

As you continue pedaling, you will arrive at the famous 19th Century Piazza del Plebiscito. Enclosed by the Royal Palace, the San Francesco di Paola church, and the Palazzo della Prefettura, this Piazza will take you back in time. To wrap up your tour, enjoy the ride to the famous opera house in Naples, the Teatro di San Carlo and to the Piazza Municipio where you'll be blown away by one of the main landmarks of the city, the Maschio Angioino, also known as the Castel Nuevo.

This bike tour includes a bike, the guide, and a helmet. The tour guarantees the participants safety by providing the route via the pedestrian and cycle paths. Sign up today for an unforgettable part of your day in Naples!

Good intro tour
November 07, 2019
The tour leader was very pleasant and enjoyable to interact with. He made a point to speak to points of interest along the ride, and the bikes were well suited to the ride. At tour end he indulged our request for a recommendation for lunch (pizza), and we thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant. The business was not strictly a bike tour firm. We found the cycling a good way to take in Napoli for the first time. Our group size was 3 riders and the leader.
