After 8 years of coming to Naples, it was time to learn the history of this spot of paradise. No better way then taking the Naples Historical Society 2 1/2 hour walking tour of Olde Naples and Naplest oldest home, Palm Cottage. The docent, Nancy Webster, really made Olde Naples -with its cottages, architecture and stories supplimented with photographs a wonderful experience and just plain FUN!

Lovely old Naples "cottage". Fun to see the old photos and furnishings. Knowledgeable docent increased my understanding of Old Naples and it's beginnings greatly. The garden was restful and Palm Cottage is only down the street from the Naples Pier.

Tours are avaliable for a small fee which is well worth it. Many antique pieces and wonderfully restored home. This is the oldest home in Naples and is near the Naples Pier. The garden in the back of the house are beatiful make sure to check it out after your tour.

It is when you learn that this house was only built in 1895 and that it is the oldest house in Naples that you realise just how recent the history of Naples is. However it is an interesting history and none more so than this house. Our tour guide was clear and enthusiastic and brought the rooms to life. If you are staying in Naples then this place is well worth a visit.
