What You'll Do

Discover the more unusual Neapolitan street food the city has to offer, known only to the locals, on a feast of discovery around this fascinating, buzzing city.

The tour begins at Alberto Squillace’s bottega. Alberto, a 5th generation glove maker, still using the same traditional 25 steps to meticulously craft each glove, just as his forefathers did, will provide you with a warm welcome to the tour in the shape of a Neapolitan breakfast.

This uniquely Neapolitan breakfast will consist of coffee and sfogliatella, a type of pastry only really found in this region of Southern Italy.

After a taste of Naples’ morning culture, we’ll head up to San Martino castle via funicolare, and a few stairs. Here, you’ll learn about a snippet of history that occurred within this huge, imposing walls, that squat impressively at the summit of Vomero hill.

This is a story forgotten, or yet unknown, to many, including the local population, for reasons that may become clear as the tale unfolds.

From there, you’ll head down the steep, winding staircases of Pedamentina, until you reach the bustling food market of Pignasecca. Amongst this heady mix of scents and sounds, we’ll try some Neapolitan street food.

From wallet pizzas, ragù sauce and meatballs to the classic Neapolitan coffee (which has surprising origins), you’ll get to enjoy some seriously tasty street food in the authentic setting of one of Naples’ oldest markets.
