Freshly Caught, Fried Seafood

You'll first head over to the famous fish market where you'll see the catches of the day right from the bay. Enjoy the cuocco fritto, or fried cone, a mouthwatering sampling of fried shrimp, calamari, and swordfish.

Pizza Fritta: The Neapolitan Street Staple

Pizza is the pride of Naples, but there is more than just a traditional margherita pizza to enjoy here. Your guide will introduce you to the Naples pizza fritta. Similar to a small calzone, this fried delight filled with San Marzano tomatoes and fresh mozzarella is the perfect street food to power you through your stroll through the market.

Locally Cured Meats and Cheeses

After wandering the streets and learning about Naples' food culture, your guide will bring the group to a tasty stop for something a bit lighter: A local antipasto plate. Enjoy traditional salami, ricotta from the nearby mountains, fresh buffalo mozzarella, fior di latte (flower of the milk) mozzarella, and tasty taralli (like a breadstick cracker).

Try the Tripe

From there, your taste buds will next enjoy a street food favorite from across the Italian peninsula. From Naples to Florence, the competition for the best tripe sandwich is a source of pride. Taste the slow-cooked, tender meat paired with lemon for a wonderful local panino (sandwich).

Your Choice of a Delicious Pastry

After a mix of savory delights, it's time for dessert. Take in the wonderful baked aroma at an amazing bakery. Pick your favorite dessert from cannoli, baba, sfogliatelle, and others. Your guide is sure to share which is their favorite treat!

Espresso and Limoncello

The tour ends the way all Italian meals should—with an espresso and a limoncello. Enjoy your coffee with a locally produced limoncello from the famous giant lemons found in Sorrento and along the Amalfi Coast. Buon appetito! Finally, your guide will share with you the Neapolitan tradition of donating coffee to the less fortunate. It's a practice known as "caffe sospeso" and is a great way to finish off your Naples food tour.
