Itinerary Details

Operated by: Food Tours of Naples

Be welcomed by your guide at the exit of the metro station MATER DEI and enter the heart of the Sanita’ district. Only few steps away from the historical centre, this area of Naples is less crowded, but still interesting. Settled at the Vomero hill slopes, it was first supposed to be a residential area for the aristocracy, it has then become a popular district, inhabited by locals. One of the pearls of the Sanita’ is the famous Cimitero delle Fontanelle, the tunnel that collects skulls and bones, and that gave birth to the Capuzzelle superstition. From the Sanita’ you can easily reach the historical centre, but first stop at Poppella’s to have a fiocco di neve – a small, sweet bun with an incredible, creamy filling!

Move ahead to the heart of Naples, and listen to the history and legends of the city, enter the churches, admire the lava and tufo stones of the buildings facades, and be ready to try some of the traditional dishes of the Neapolitan tradition: buffalo mozzarella, ragu’, pasta e patate con la provola (pasta with potatoes and provola cheese), limoncello and more. You will walk on the main streets of the core of Naples - via dei tribunal and Spaccanapoli – passing by the highlight of the historical centre: the Holy Stone church, San Gregorio Armeno, piazzetta Nilo, San Domenico Maggiore, piazza del Gesu’ Nuovo – facing two of the oldest and most important churches of Naples: Santa Chiara in old, Italian Gothic style, and Gesu’ Nuovo, whose black, diamond shaped façade legend will intrigue you.

Exit the historical centre and turn on via Toledo, the commercial street, full of shops and lights, that will lead you to piazza del Plebiscito, around which the Royal Palace and the Basilica di San Francesco di Paola raise. Stop at the Caffe’ Gambrinus to enjoy a coffee and let the pastry window amaze you.
