The city of Naples is the birthplace of most of the food that made Italy renowned worldwide, such as Babà, Sfogliatelle, Spaghetti and Pizza Margherita, and this is only a small portion of them! The city itself is big enough to feel lost if you choose to visit it on your own, and it is also not a typical touristic city. Most of its wonders are hidden, and you ought to know where to go to experience the best, through hundreds of narrow, picturesque streets.
Thanks to the expertise of our guides, you could walk through the stunning streets of the city centre admiring monuments and artworks, while being able to stop at any time by one of the many pizzaiolos that we will find on our path. You could taste the typical Zucchini Flowers before visiting Spaccanapoli, or see Piazza del Gesù soon after you tried the real Eggplant Parmigiana!
Me and my husband stayed in Naples two days and from there we visited Pompeii and Amalfi. However, the food tour in Naples was my favorite experience in the area. Lots of great food and wine, thank you guys for making our holidays memorable. Elizabeth M., Scranton, USA
