Project Description

Seeking the Greek-roman roots of the city.

Initially we follow the promenade of Naples, touching the magical original nucleus of the city, Castel dell’ Ovo, its underlying village “Borgo Marinari”, heading east on Via Caracciolo.Then we ride along the stately Piazza del Plebiscito and the Royal Palace, the commercial and bustling street Via Toledo, Piazza Carità and Piazza del Gesù.Here starts the ancient Greek hearth of Naples, with its Decumani – the main parallel roads of the Greek city Neapolis, crossing dozens of “vicoli”, the narrow tiny streets of the historical city centre. We ride the lower Decumano heading up to the central (called “Maggiore”), Via dei Tribunali and Anticaglia. Extension: from Piazza del Plebiscito with a short climb we go on the top of Mount Echia, the first mainland site of Greek settlers. A beautiful view on Castel dell’Ovo and the Gulf of Naples enlighten your tour.
