Halloween 2017 in Naples

Italy has a long tradition of celebrating Halloween and All Saints’ Day and Halloween 2017 in Naples is set to be one of the best celebrations yet.

While known for its history and intriguing archaeological attractions, Naples has a mysterious side and several parts of the city are said to be haunted. If you are visiting Naples during the Halloween 2017 celebrations then we highly recommend enjoying one of the upcoming city events, including the suggestive city ghost tour, which begins at sunset in Piazza Luigi Miraglia, near the Pontano Chapel. It takes you to the Tribunals, passing through the Church of the Souls at the Purgatorio, where it is said young ladies once prayed to Princess Lucia in order to find love. The Naples ghost tour then continues to Piazza San Domenico Maggiore, where locals have reported hearing the squeak of Prince San Severo’s carriage, who is said to haunt the area. Some have even reported seeing the hooded figures of Maria d'Avalos and her lover Fabrizio Carafa in the square!
