Approximately 3 Hours
Bring your appetite and your curiosity for this unforgettable culinary tour of one of the world's most foodie-friendly cities. Even in this dedicated, food-loving nation, no city is more famous for its cuisine than Naples. This is where pizza was invented, and coffee was perfected. Many of the other iconic Italian dishes that America loves started out right here in Naples too. You'll discover some of the city's most distinctive eateries, learn about the local culture, and take in some historic sites along the way on this "multi-tasking" tour that is, in fact, a multi-sensory immersion gourmet experience.
Follow your guide on foot between best-kept-secret gourmet hubs, handily walking off each tasting before succumbing to the temptation of the next one. Where you stop will depend on the day and the season.
You may visit Scaturchio Opera Cafe, kicking off your foodie adventure with a crash course in Italian coffee. This café claims to make Naples', and indeed perhaps Italy's, best espresso.
Exquisite, mouthwatering pastries still warm from the oven are on offer at Sfogliatella Mary -- some handmade love for your sweet tooth. Pizzeria ‘Ntretella serves heaven by the slice and may actually be the pinnacle source of the world's favorite pie. At Il Pizzicagnolo, you’ll experience local shop life and their prized mozzarella. Not far away, a line of hungry (and choosy) locals outside tells you that you've found the legendary Passione di Sofi and just when you thought you'd been there and done that, you bite into a fried pasta… Wander back to your transportation and return to the pier in Naples.
