Naples Culinary Tour
Join a Neapolitan food expert on an adventure through the heart of one of the world's oldest cities whose traditions and heritage are best understood when all of your senses are engaged! From the port of Naples meet your expert, local guide directly at the pier. From there, you will set out for a walking tour of this bustling metropolis while uncovering the gastronomic culture of Naples through its history, anecdotes and legends.
Learn the intricacies of the Neapolitan coffee rituals with a bracing cup of espresso. Discover the rich architecture hidden above the narrow, winding streets of this ancient city as you stroll through the Spanish Quarter and the beautiful cloister garden of Santa Chiara. Along the way, you will stop and taste several of Naples; most well-loved specialties such as sfogliatella, "wallet pizza", cuopo fritto, the true rum baba, as well as local beer and wine.
For a truly unique, in-depth look at this historical town, you will also pay a visit to Naples underground. Descent the lively streets almost 40 meters and travel 2,400 years into the past to the very heart of Naples - the place from which the city was born. This now underground "museum" holds a labyrinth of channels which were used for centuries as water reservoirs. Later, during WWII, they were cleared of water and transformed into air-raid shelters. See the progression of time as your guide directs you through this intriguing network below the urban streets.
At the end of your walking tour you will be free to continue exploring Naples on your own or follow your guide back to the pier. Total walking distance in Naples is about 3 miles with several stops along the way.
