Dive into the lively spirit of Naples with our extensive street and food tour, taking you through the fascinating Rione Sanità district and other remarkable parts of the city.

Your adventure starts at the bustling Marketplace of Vergini, setting the tone for our culinary journey. Our first stop is the family-run Antica Enoteca Sepe in the heart of Naples. Although traditionally a beloved wine shop, our focus remains on the rich local culture.

Next, admire the architectural beauty of The Palazzo dello Spagnolo from the outside, as we explore its fascinating history and significance.

Indulge in the creamy delight of Mozzarella di Bufala Campana at La Piccola Italia. This cheese, made from water buffalo milk, is a true testament to Neapolitan artisanal craftsmanship and holds a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) status.

Strolling through Via Montesilvano, we will see the characteristic "bassi" houses and Totò's birthplace, appreciating the charm and legacy of this iconic Neapolitan figure. We then stop at Tarallificio Esposito to sample the beloved taralli, traditional Italian snacks crafted from authentic recipes with locally sourced ingredients.

At Piazza Sanità, marvel at striking murals and take a brief visit inside the Basilica Santa Maria della Sanità. Those interested can also explore the ancient San Gaudioso catacombs, dating back to the 5th century.

Our journey continues with an outside visit to Palazzo San Felice, followed by a delightful stop at Pizzeria Concettina ai Tre Santi to taste the famous fried pizza, or "pizza fritta." This street food staple, with its crispy exterior and flavorful fillings, epitomizes the essence of Neapolitan cuisine.

The tour concludes at Pasticceria Poppella, a historic bakery founded in 1920. Here, you can indulge in traditional pastries, including their renowned Fiocco di Neve, a soft bun filled with creamy ricotta that draws long lines of eager locals.

Join us for an unforgettable Naples Food Tour, where each bite and step bring you closer to understanding why Naples is hailed as one of the world's food capitals.
