There’s a lot to discover in the German capital aside from the Brandenburg Gate and the Berlin Wall. In the book “Secret Berlin” Thomas Jonglez presents around 200 sites that are even unknown to some Berliners.
Berlin, Germany’s capital, dates to the 13th century. Reminders of the city’s turbulent 20th-century history include its Holocaust memorial and the Berlin Wall’s graffitied remains. Divided during the Cold War, its 18th-century Brandenburg Gate has become a symbol of reunification. The city’s also known for its art scene and modern landmarks like the gold-colored, swoop-roofed Berliner Philharmonie, built in 1963.
Have you ever dreamed walking among the most important shop windows of the great Italian brands and finding yourself in a Medieval Castle in the middle of the sea? This can happen in Naples with THIS tour. We will start from Piazza dei Martiri, an elegant district of Naples surrounded by Rococò Palazzos and some in the Liberty style.
From here our walk, among anecdotes of architecture, history and archeology, will arrive at the foot of a medieval fortress: the “Castel dell’ovo” built in the 11th century. A Legend says that an alchemical “egg” is kept in its foundations, which explains the name, but the reality is that it was built on the ruins of a magnificent Roman villa overlooking the sea. In this tour I will then take you, to the feet of the Castle where among the bronze cannons, narrow prisons, you will admire the most beautiful view of the city seen from the sea.
