The bond between Diego Armando Maradona and Naples is indissoluble and this walking tour will take you to discover the places that marked the 'Pibe de Oro' stay in the city.
Your journey on the traces left by Maradona in Naples can only begin with a visit to the museum of Naples football history. The place boasts a private collection of original jerseys and soccer memorabilia that trace, with expert care, over 80 years of the city's soccer history. Then, head to the former San Paolo Stadium, which hosted the exploits of the Argentine champion for many years and turned into Diego Armando Maradona Stadium after his death. You'll admire the stadium from outside while your guide will tell you more about its importance.
Continue visiting Posillipo, the neighborhood that hosted the real home of the 'Pibe de Oro', and the Tranchese house where the champion lived for 7 years. You will see the balcony overlooking the Gulf where Maradona, already famous, used to dribble with oranges. Discover the most photographed murals in Italy made by famous street artists and dedicated to Maradona. The photographed works are the pilgrimage destination of every soccer fan visiting Naples.
Walk along the picturesque Spaccanapoli, where other tributes to the champion can be found. The most surprising of these places is the bar where a small altar dedicated to the player has been set; it includes unique photographs and even a lock of his hair. Here you'll stop to have a good Neapolitan coffee before reaching San Gregorio Armeno. This famous street is known for its nativity scenes and Maradona doesn't miss among the figurines of the Neapolitan crib. Get the chance to buy one as a beautiful memory of this experience.
