It¬†ends with pedalling under the stars on Sunday.

On Saturday 13th, and every Saturday in September and October, there will be special “guided tours” for children (‘Un Tesoro d’Oltremare‘), in the form of treasure hunts for clues, around the Mostra d’Oltremare.

On Sunday 14th, and every Sunday in September and October, you can take an evening guided tour, ‘LA MOSTRA SI MOSTRA‘,¬†around the spectacular public park of the Mostra d’Oltremare. ¬†A¬†fascinating journey amongst history, modern architecture, splendid specimens of exotic and mediterranean flora, fountains and water features, culminating in¬†the¬†impressive display¬†of water, music, lights and colours of the Esedra Fountain.

If you are interested in contemporary dance, but based on the traditional Tarantella, then on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th September there is ‘SanTarantella‘ dance show at the Teatro Stabile d’Innovazione.

Last, but by no means least, the Campagna Amica Coldiretti Markets return on Saturday 13th September in Piazza S. Di Giacomo in Posillipo and on Sunday 14th September in Viale Campi Flegrei and Piazza Immacolata.  The farmers markets are a chance to buy local products and healthy and affordable food with low environmental impact.

Of course there are more events currently on around Naples, details of which you can find on our events pages.

Have a fantastic weekend, and¬†good luck to those of you starting back at school. ūüôā
