Naples cuisine offers one of the best food varieties in all of Italy. You can search for the best specialties by yourself using google or food blogs. However, do you really want to waste your time in front of the screen typing “best street food in Naples” or “best pizza in Naples” and so on? I don’t think you want that! You can find many of the places where we go on your own, but it will probably take you a few days to get to them.
Our food tours will allow you to get the best that the Neapolitan cuisine offers in only three hours. The three hours will fly away so quickly between tasting: frittatine (Neapolitan pasta fritters), fried pizza, panzerotti and a fried “cuoppo” (a paper cone filled with fried food). Our street food tour Naples must be considered a walk with a local friend who will select the best food of the day.
During our excursion, we are not only going to find the right food places for you, but we will introduce you to the vendors, tell their stories, and share other curiosities about the Neapolitan city’s street life. You can learn about the history of pizza on the web, or you can do it listening to us as you sip a glass of good wine.
What will I see during the Naples street food tour?
Our street food tour in Naples is different from other tour companies’ offers. We won’t walk you around the touristy city center or to the same places you would find on your own. We don’t do this because we want to be cool. Instead, we design tours based on our local guides’ tastes and preferences. We find the Quartieri Spagnoli as the best location for a food experience in this amazing city.
The Quartieri Spagnoli doesn’t have the best reputation within the city. It’s the central residential district where Neapolitans. Is it elegant? Nope, it is not. It’s just the way this city is behind the touristy curtains. The vibes of Quartieri Spagnoli are unique, it’s noisy and lively, just like the south of Italy is.
But of course, we run food tours. Our Naples food tour walks travelers around the Quartieri Spagnoli because this area is full of secret gems when it comes to food! Mamas frying pizzas, butchers who serve old-style dishes, family-run vendors frying vegs and carbs. It’s a pure celebration of Italian taste or the way we say the “Unfiltered Taste of Naples.”
The Quartieri Spagnoli area includes the food market of la Pignasecca. A food market tour of this city with a local guide is essential to learn about local cuisine, its related history, and traditions.
Another highlight of our Napoli food and market tour is the so-called “sanctuary of Maradona.” Yes, Neapolitans made this up! You will visit this incredible place with your local guide. You will take a seat and sip a beer as you talk about the intimate street culture of Naples.
