Private Naples & Caserta

Starting bright and early, a private driver will pick you up at the cruise ship terminal in Naples or any other meeting point near the port that you arrange for your Naples day trip. A driver will chauffeur you and your companions from Naples to the Palace of Caserta in comfort in your own private sedan or van. It's a luxurious way to see this wonderful part of Italy.

Your full day tour starts in the capital of the Campania region, historic Naples. Tiny, narrow streets wind their way around the city, held in check by the long, straight Spaccanapoli that cuts its way through the center of the city. Following this main road you'll easily find many of the city's most beautiful attractions.

Take in the grandeure of the Piazza del Plebiscito, which is surrounded by the Royal Palace, home of the Bourbon Kings since the 17th Century. Nearby is the Church of San Francesco di Paola, a domed cathederal with a portico similar to the Pantheon in Rome.

The huge, imposing 13th century Castel Nuovo is another sight to behold, with its stately, stark medieval towers surrounding a marble triumphal arch that was added in 1443 to celebrate Alfonso of Aragon's entry to Naples.

Since you're in Naples, take the opportunity to enjoy the city's most famous dish, Neapolitan Pizza. You can find many delightful pizzerias in the city. Or if pizza's not your thing, ask your driver for suggestions on where to find any of Naples's other delicious treats.

After lunch, it is on to the Royal Palace of Caserta. The "Italian Versailles" was the largest palace built in all of Europe in the 18th Century. It's a baroque delight, built for royalty with its ornate frescos and reliefs, dramatic staircases, dancing fountains, and English gardens.

Lightweight summer clothing and light layers are recommended, with sweaters and jackets advised for evenings and cooler months. Some terrain in Italy is uneven, and archaeological sites can be challenging for those who are not surefooted, so keep that in mind when booking your tour. Vehicles are accessible for a collapsible wheelchair or walker.

Bookings for this tour are available from March through November, with each tour lasting nine hours. Private tours for small and large groups are both available, using either luxurious Mercedes sedans or Mercedes vans. Whether it's a family vacation or a large group, party, or wedding excursion, expert, local drivers will privately chauffeur you through Italy.

Please Note:This tour includes an English-speaking driver, fuel, highway toll fees, and parking fees, but it does not include entrance fees or tickets to local attractions, or private guides. Food and beverages are not included in the tour price, though there are times set aside for snack breaks and meals included in the day's schedule. Don't hesitate to ask your driver for suggestions on local restaurants and cafes that you may enjoy. At the end of the tour you will be returned to the cruise ship terminal in Naples.

Fabulous, exciting Naples
June 11, 2016
Fabio did a fab job running us through the Royal Palace at Caserta and Naples. He knew the routes and traffic well. People drive like lunatics in Naples..Also chose an over the top restaurant for lunch, The Reginella. No one spoke English there but that's ok... View over all of Naples, the Isle of Capri and Mt. Vesuvius. I would go back there if I ever return to Naples.
