Naples Food Walking Tour
As you wander, hear stories about Naples' history and its renowned cuisine, and look out for local landmarks including the grand Teatro di San Carlo, Europe’s longest running opera house. Make your first stop in a cafe opposite the opera, where you'll take part in a Neapolitan morning tradition and drink a short and strong Italian espresso.
Move on to the expansive Piazza del Plebiscito and cast your eyes upon the collection of impressive monuments that surround it, including the striking and enormous façade of the Royal Palace of Naples. Enter the nearby Galleria Umberto I, a stunning 19th-century shopping mall with a beautiful glass roof and mosaic floor. While in here, munch on a sweet treat — a fresh and hot sfogliatella pastry made with delicious layers of soft, flaky dough.
Wipe away any remaining crumbs and continue on to a nearby food market. Be introduced to an array of local specialties and browse the fresh produce at the greengrocer and fish stands. Taste another street food snack, which changes depending on season and availability, but may include 'o pére e ‘o musso (cold meat with salt and lemon) or a pizzette (small pizza).
After leaving the market, cut down Spaccanapoli, a straight narrow street that bisects Naples Old Town. The tour ends at the centrally-located Piazza Dante. Before you part ways with your guide, take recommendations on the best pizzerias and restaurants, where you can indulge in even more delicious Neapolitan cuisine.

This tour is awesome! We were lucky enough to be the only 2 on the tour this day! Silvia our guide was absolutely fantastic. She is a true Neapolitan who loves her city and knows the history and food culture so well. Every food vendor was excited to see her. The food was incredible and we skipped dinner that evening- pastry, fried pizza, buffalo mozzarella, fried fish, hazelnut espresso and gelato....it was all incredible. But really-- a tour guide makes the tour and Silvia was the best! Even the tour company was great to work with after a mix up over which language we wanted the tour in-- Silvia does tours in both English and French so confirm which group you are with-- it didn't matter for us since we were the only ones on the tour but the company was gracious and called to confirm everything the evening before. Thank you Silvia for an unforgettable experience.
We loved it. We had the best time with Giuseppe. The food stops were excellent. Giuseppe was very informative and fun.
What a great way to see Naples and sample a wide variety of foods and drink. Can't say enough about our guide Sylvia who really made this a special tour. Both her knowledge of the history as we walked around the city as well as her selection of samples from special coffee and pastry to fresh sea food at the market were outstanding. I don't think we could have asked for more. Also, she provided us with some incredible recommendations for dinner which turned out to be the best we had in a city that is full of great food. Top marks
Everything was delicious, and Silvia is an excellent guide! This tour is highly recommended for those who enjoy walking and tasting delicious foods while learning about a city.
My only complaint was there was too much food! Everything from the professor's coffee to offal I would never have tried otherwise to calzones to delicately fried bites of fish to gelato was perfect. I highly recommend the tour to anyone who would like to try anything and everything while learning the history of how these peasant foods developed to much of the comfort foods we eat today. Try it , you'll like it. No actually you'll love it. A great way to spend an afternoon in exploring Naples that left us wanting more.
Outstanding!!! Our guide was 5 star! She was so informative and accommodating. Excellent English. Would highly recommend this if you would like to see some of the off the beaten track areas of Naples. Food was excellent.
My husband, mother-in-law, and I took this tour recently and enjoyed it very much. Our cruise ship docked in Naples for the day and we were seeking something different than the planned excursions our cruise offered us. This definitely fit the bill! Our tour guide Giuseppe was very informative, friendly and fun to walk and talk with while we ate our way through town. As Americans, we felt very comfortable and would recommend this to others. Just as a warning, we got very full and couldn't finish everything offered to us. So, pace yourself. :
