Pizza is a beloved food worldwide, but Naples is its birthplace. To eat pizza in Naples is to eat it for the first time, really. The dough, the mozzarella, the sauce – it’s all made in a tradition stretching back centuries and it makes an experience which is unique to Naples.
Beyond what’s on the menu, Mount Vesuvius is one of the main draws for the area; it’s the volcano which destroyed Pompeii, creating the famous ruins which are now frequented by thousands of travellers every year.
Below ground, the Catacombs of San Gennaro can be found and explored. Restored and made available to tourists, the catacombs’ history stretches back to the 3rd century. It’s truly a humbling site to explore.
By the water, the Castel dell’Ovo can be found and toured. A castle set right on the seaside, this marvellous structure was once a royal residence and can now be explored by all.
