Duration: 3 Hours and 15 minutes
The Holy Mile (the Miglio Sacro) is a sacred, one-mile long itinerary, from the tomb of St. Gennaro to his Treasure. This journey of discovery was reopened in 2006 for Naples and Neapolitans, as well as for visitors and tourists from all around the world.
The tour explores Rione Sanità, a district once inhabited by numerous peoples and cultures, from African to Chinese. When crossing the neighborhood today, the mixture of sounds, colours, and faces confirms that diversity is still at home here. The streets preserve memories of coaches with Popes, kings, and cardinals, from more prosperous times. The churches, more than mere prodigious galleries for worship, provide a place of rest, peace and desire for a better life.
To “experience” the Holy Mile means to support the revival of Rione Sanità by affirming its long history and inner chaotic beauty.
Guided Tour is available in Italian language every Sunday at 09:30 a.m.
