Take a trip back in time to old Napoli…

Naples is the most superstitious city in Italy with its fables, legends and ghost stories. Join us as we explore undiscovered corners of the city that most tourists don’t see. You’ll wander up and down the cobbled streets of the old Spanish Quarter and other local neighbourhoods, enjoying food once prepared for kings and noble families, but still enjoyed by the locals today!

Our food tour takes you away from the tourist traps to areas unseen by most travellers. Not only will you try real Neapolitan pizza, you’ll taste local specialties such as deep-fried pasta and the flakey pastry sfogliatella. Our tour also includes a stop at the city’s largest open-air food market, where you’ll have your fill of the tastiest street food.

Escape the crowds and join us for an unforgettable day of eating, drinking and socialising!

Please note: tour stops, tastings and number of tastings are likely to change slightly to reflect seasonal produce, vendor opening hours and availability.

Soak up the sights, sounds and culture as you wander through the Pignasecca Food Market.

You can't leave Naples without having a traditional Neapolitan pizza, of course!

We enjoyed our mini food tour of central Naples. This gave a great snapshot of Napoli, the people and the food they love. Food was tasty and the guide informative. Do at beginning of your stay if you can.

An amazing tour when you have a broad view of Napolitan gastronomy. I’lll never forget the tastes here because Naples is much more than “the land where the pizza Margherita was invented”. Aldo also is a great and funny guide that made our visit much more interesting!

- Patacosta (TripAdvisor Review)

This is a great tour. Francesco was a great guide – knowledgeable and friendly and very helpful with recommendations at the end of the tour. He really gave us a great flavor of the city, both food-wise and culturally!

What a great experience! Had the good fortune of having not one, but two fantastic guides, Leandra and the main man, Francesco. Thanks to this tour, I not only learned and tasted amazing Neapolitan cuisine (yumm does not even begin to describe the food), but also about the city, its history, and the warmth and hospitality that Napoli has to offer.
