This was so pleasant. Lots of places to socialize and enjoy a great meal. It’s a wonderful walk thru the area. Lots of beautiful flowers and architecture. We regret we ate before we went to this historic part of town.

Beautiful home. Our docent was amazing in his knowledge of the history of the home and of the town of Naples. The photos in the home also help paint the history of the town.

Lovely house with very interesting features, including a prohibition table. Tour guide gave lots of information about the early days of Naples and how it developed in a very entertaining way. The garden is beautiful and very restful. Well worth a visit.
