Many people know about Naples' exceptional beauties, its culture and precious artworks, but not everyone knows that Naples is also the kingdom of pizza!
A story tells that in 1889, when pizza had not yet become a popular dish and was usually eaten only by poor people, the Neapolitan owner of a tavern, Raffaele Esposito, honored the Queen Margherita of Savoy with a pizza garnished with tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and basil, to represent the colors of the Italian flag. This delicious experiment gave birth to the legendary Pizza Margherita.
This 3-hour private guided tour is a multi-sensory experience merging local history and flavors. As you walk through the picturesque, narrow lanes of the historic center, admiring its glorious monuments and architecture, you will relive the chronicle of pizza, from the tale of its creation to its worldwide success.

Pastecresciute, frittatine and battilocchio, typical Neapolitan fried snacks, and pizza will be served along the way. Take this tour and you will fall in love with Naples at the first bite!
