FITNESS / PRACTICALITIES

This tour has a full and comprehensive itinerary, making the most of our stay in Naples, so a good level of fitness and stamina is required. Many visits will be made on foot and some by public transport, and participants should expect to spend a significant amount of time walking. Most of the city of Naples is on flat ground but the group will be required to climb up steps occasionally, and to traverse potentially uneven ground and cobbles. There will also be a significant amount of time spent standing in galleries and at historical sites.
