Explore the undiscovered side of Naples most tourists don’t venture out to see. Wander up and down the cobble-stoned streets of the Spanish Quarter and other local neighborhoods with us. Naples is the most superstitious city of Italy with its fables, legends and ghost stories. Enjoy the food that was once prepared by the poor people for the kings and noble families and is still eaten today by everyone!

Our food tour takes you away from the tourist traps to areas unseen by most travelers. Explore and get to know this city through its amazing food and drinks. Not only will you try traditional Neapolitan pizza, you’ll also try some local specialties such as deep fried pasta and the flakey pastry ‘sfogliatella’!

Additionally, you’ll be introduced to the most popular open air food market and learn about the history of an architectural landmark. Get away from the crowds and join us for an unforgettable day of eating, drinking, making new friends, and – above all – having fun!

Todd (Tripadvisor Review)

An evening of great food and drink with Zahra and Josh, both of whom are personable, fun, and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend if you want to eat at some eclectic places that are out of the way and delicious. But the guides made the evening.
