A new window to see Naples from above
Imagine you can walk on top of Naples, on its most beautiful cathedral. A small door, a lift, and then you are on the rooftop. Now you can make it real, just wait until Christmas, in December this window will be open to the public.
From the highest point of the Cathedral of Naples, the most important church of the city and one of the most visited points of interest.
Walking on the Cathedral at 50 meters high to understand the beauty of Naples
Here's what has been achieved. Preparations are taking place, as you will be able to enter the cathedral and reach the top of it, at 160 feet. Then you can enjoy a breath-taking wiew, including the Vesuvius, of course, and then the Vomero hills, the Royal Palace of Capodimonte, the harbour and even the islands, Procida, Ischia, and Capri. Just turn around, walk and enjoy Naples at a new height!
Why is Naples in the World Heritage List by UNESCO? Take a look around and you have the answer. With this walk on the cathedral you can have a wonderful landscape, as if you were on a castle, but you see the beauty of Naples, with its narrow streets, its monuments. People go up and down trying to avoid the typical frenzy of a big city, while you relax on the top of the cathedral.
Walking in the sky of Naples: an old Neapolitan idea
The European Union has been pivotal in this by funding the projects for the historic centre of Naples, especially this one. The idea was already designed in late ‘60s, but according to the plan only by December people and tourists will be able to walk in the blue sky of Naples.
Now that you know with such an advance, you can make notes and add it to your to-do list next time (or first) time you come to Naples!
