If you thought you knew pizza, think again. Naples is home to so many original varieties that you’ll have a hard time choosing your option. Then pass to the savory ‘pagnutiello’, a symphony of fried seafood known as a ‘cuoppo’, or ‘cup’, due to the paper cone it's served in, or the ‘cuppetiello’, another succulent version that'll make your mouth water.
If you have a sweet tooth, then you’re definitely in the right place, too! Naples is home to some of the best and most famous pastries in the world with such delicious creations as scrumptious ‘sfogliatelle’, rich ‘Baba’ soaked in rum or the epicurean ‘zeppole’, filled with custard, jelly or cream. Your journey will take you through narrow, picturesque alleys as they open onto elegant piazzas. Pass from Piazza del Gesù, with the splendid Spanish-style Baroque Church of Gesù Nuovo and incredibly sculpted monument dedicated to the Holy Virgin. Visit the ancient heart of the city along Spaccanapoli, one of its oldest streets, dividing it in half. See San Gregorio Armeno, famous for its Christmas market and where the most beautiful nativity scene figures you have ever seen are sold year-round by sculptors that rival Michelangelo and Bernini. You will also pass the Naples Cathedral, Then it’s on to other scenic streets, like Via dei Tribunali and finally onto Piazza Dante, the city’s former market square, where your tour will end and it will be easy to catch a taxi or the metro back to your hotel.
