Museums and churches packed with world-class art, magnificent palazzi and piazze, a panoramic view of the Mediterraneo: Naples has much to offer. Delicious food and drink are just as much part of the attraction. Welcome to the birthplace of the pizza Margherita. You will also find outstanding coffee, handmade chocolate and delectable ice cream. Below you will find three finger-licking good destinations.
The residents of Naples are not particularly known for their fondness of rules. Except when it comes to food; then everything is done by the book. Take for example the preparation of a real Neapolitan pizza. The recipe must be followed religiously, down to the kneading of the dough, the shape, the temperature and the baking time. When your piping hot pizza Margherita or marinara comes out of the wood burning oven, the pizza police will check if its perfect crispy bottom passes muster. Anywhere you see ‘vera pizza napoletana’ on a sign, menu or placemat, you can be reassured of the quality.
