Meet the guide and set off to discover the most emblematic places of the most iconic and well-loved football player of all time, Diego Armando Maradona. Our expert guide will explain to you why he is so well-loved in Naples.
Maradona gave Naples football the most successful period in their history during his time there from 1984 to 1991.
The greatest demonstration of love and respect of the city towards the Argentine champion were thousands of mourners, minutes after the news of the footballer’s death was announced, taking to the streets to commemorate their adopted king of Naples.
Maradona’s life was mired in scandal, but this only made his fans adore him more, his rebelliousness and vulnerability evidence of the human beneath the star football player. In Naples, he was venerated like a demigod, comparable only to the city’s patron saint, San Gennaro.
