Nilo and Bacco
An exquisite wine tasting tour that takes place near the ancient Greek walls of Neapolis.
The tour starts from the San Carlo theater - the older opera theater in Europe - opened by the king Charles the 1st of Bourbon in 1737. Here we can admire the royal palace where several dynasties lived since 16th century and the core of the city, the historical Piazza del Plebiscito where a plebiscite ended the bourbon reign.
The old Spanish Toledo street with its noble buildings, once core of the Spanish quarter, nowadays is a main shopping street in the centre; we will admire it before cutting through Spaccanapoli, the original plan of the ancient Greek “Neapolis”.
We will visit Piazza del Gesù square, where the esoteric mysteries laying on the church ashlar wall meet the dark shadow of death behind the obelisk in the twelfth hour of the day. Here where the gothic church of Santa Chiara - house of D'Anjou and Bourbon dynasties - meets the glamour of the 60s on the balcony of Palazzo Pandola where film Matrimonio all'Italiana has been played.
San Domenico Maggiore square is the Sansevero's family square. Their ancient buildings surround it, and the presence of the mysterious prince Raimondo Di Sangro is still living through legends. We will admire San Domenico church where spoils of Aragon kings are, and go to the artist exposure Alessandro Kokocinsky called ‘la voce del pensiero’ (voices of thought) playing up to June 26th.
Tasting of region potential top-quality wines in a typical wine bar concludes our tour, just few meters from the precious conservatory of San Pietro a Majella.
