Every city has an esoteric side, and Naples is no exception! This 4-hour private and enlightening tour will take you through ancient Naples and a world created by popular culture, not by ignorance, as many would believe. A walk along the alleyways will bring you to merchants selling the popular curniciello, or Italian Horn. With origins to 3,500 B.C. this coveted amulet is worn as protection against the evil eye and to welcome virility and fertility. Learn how to tap into its special power as you purchase one for a family member or friend.

While in the city you will also be introduced to O Munaciello and A Bella 'Mbriana, two wandering spirits visiting the city's palaces and homes for centuries, as well as other figures that will share the rich history of Naples.

Head to the Church of San Gregorio Armeno and enter the Cloister of San Gregorio Armeno to understand why the sacred and profane are mixed here. This is the place where Santa Patrizia performs the miracle of the liquefaction of his blood yearly. Over at the Cathedral of Naples, you will find the blood ampule of San Gennero, the patron saint of Naples, that has reportedly liquified during a special ceremony each year since 1389. This saint is the world's richest thanks to the princes, popes, and commoners who have donated treasures to him over the centuries.
