Apartment for rent from € 150/day in NaplesName/Address: EXCLUS APT IN ARISTOCRATIC XVI BLDG
There lived, in the 18th century, the Great Saint, Alfonso de Liguori (August 1st on the calendar), Doctor of the Church and Founder of the Congregation of the Very Holy Redemptor, and in that area he started his apostolate.
The apartment, composed by two double-bedrooms (king-size and queen-size beds), dining room, living room, bathroom, fully furnished kitchen and huge panoramic terrace (90 mq - 1,000 sf), is in an area very well linked to everywhere (2 subways, 5 bus-lines and taxi rank) and offers many touristic attractions (Greek Hipogea of 4th century B.C.; Sacrarium of Fontanelle; Saint Gaudioso and Saint Gennaro's Catacombs; and many aristocratic palaces and important churches).
In five minutes walk, you can reach Naples' Cathedral, with the priceless Saint Gennaro's treasure; and the National Museum of Archeology, with the finest pieces of Pompei and the wonderful Farnese's Collection.
By appointment only, it's possible to visit the Prince's apartment, composed by several reception rooms, a huge ballroom with 18th century frescoes on the ceiling and a splendid 18th century chandelier, a very important library with 16th - 17th - 18th century books, in which rooms the princely family regularly organizes cultural events as concerts, theater exhibitions and debates.
On these occasions, and especially by night, some ghosts belonging to the family have appeared and seemed to enjoy very much to be in company.

Review from David Gepner (Munich, Germany)
Gianfrancesco's apartment is really as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. When we got to Napoli, we met up with his mother Paola, who gave us the key and showed us around. She is extremely friendly and helpful and provided us with invaluable assistance throughout of stay, making sure we got the most out of our trip, and Gianfrancesco was always available by phone, in case we had a problem. Our apartment, together with hers, occupies the entire third floor of a huge, family-owned, aristocratic building, right in the center of Napoli. The palace itself is very old, with very high ceilings (some frescoed) and huge windows. Our quarters were six rooms (including two bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom, which is accessed through one of the bedrooms) plus an enormous terrace which overlooks a marketplace district below, where seemingly all the locals went for their daily shopping. Needless to say, the food was sublime, with cheap quality groceries available in the shops on the street below and incredible restaurants scattered throughout the city. The city itself is extremely vibrant and full of history, and the surrounding countryside is some of the most gorgeous I've even seen (especially the Amalfi coast) . All in all we couldn't have asked for a better or more memorable experience, courtesy of Gianfrancesco and Paola. We will certainly be back!
