Stop At: Piazza Bellini, Naples Italy
The square is typically one of the meeting places for many intellectuals to discuss art, history and philosophy because it is surrounded by numerous universities and close to the Academy of Fine Arts and the Conservatory of San Pietro a Majella.
The square is surrounded by monumental palaces from the 16th and 17th centuries that constitute important imprints of Neapolitan Renaissance and Baroque art , such as Palazzo Castriota Scanderbeg or Palazzo Firrao . On the south side it overlooks the complex of Sant'Antonio delle Monache in Port'Alba , today the library of the "Lettere e filosofia" faculty, while on the opposite side there is the De Rossi palace of Castelpetroso (also called Palazzo Mastellone).
The west side is dominated by what was once the palace of the Princes of Conca, built in the late 15th century and which still shows some original architectural features on the façade.
Finally, in the western boundary there are some remains of the walls of the Greek Neapolis , discovered in part in 1954 and later in 1984 .
The square is a crossroads of three important streets in the historic center, via Port'Alba (behind the ancient honorary gate of the city), via san Sebastiano (known as the way of music as there are numerous musical instrument shops on site) and via Santa Maria di Costantinopoli (the street that leads to the national archaeological museum ).
Duration: 2 hours
