Gastronomic Tour of Naples

Summary

Walk around the historic streets of Naples, sampling the most exquisite delicacies the region has to offer.

Traditional Neapolitan cooking is very rich and complex. It has many simple but complete foods, such as pizza, as well as elaborate and tasty dishes.

The tour starts with the visit of the vibrant Monumental area of Naples and with the tasting of a typical strong and creamy coffee in the Gambrinus Bar, a historical coffeehouse.

Walking along the crowded and cheerful Toledo street you’ll see the colourful pastry shops and it is here that you will taste the babà rum, a light, golden, brioche-like sweet bread that is generously soaked in rum syrup. You will also sample a traditional sfogliatella, a shell-shaped pastry. Sfogliatella means small, thin leaf/layer, as the pastry’s texture resembles stacked leaves.

After this first experience of the Neapolitan specialities you’ll reach the historical centre of the city, the beating heart of Naples where you’ll taste the best pizza you have ever had. The traditional local Pizzerias use wood burning brick ovens that make the pizza unique. Furthermore you’ll see how pizza makers prepare the famous disc to stuff with mozzarella cheese, tomatoes and basil.
