Italy’s third-largest municipality is not just home to the fallen city of Pompeii and the city’s resident volcano: Mount Vesuvius. It’s also not just home to the grand cathedral of Duomo di Napoli and the city’s patron saint: Saint Januarius. It’s even not just home to the primeval castle of Castel Nuovo and the city’s first king: Charles 1.
Ladies and gentlemen, here’s a short list on what to look forward in Naples:
Believe it or not, pizza has been around for centuries. One early pizza recipe known to man is the Neapolitan pizza or pizza Napoletana, which is topped with San Marzano tomatoes and Mozzarella Campana cheese. And yes, you guessed it – it was first made in Naples. Other variants of this special kind of pizza include the Pizza Marinara, which is made of tomatoes, garlic slices, and oregano leaves; and the Pizza Margherita, which is made of Parmesan cheese, olive oil, and basil leaves.
Wine is another thing to look forward in Naples due to its glasses being exclusively offered with pairings such as cheese and other gourmet dishes. Even more so, wine tours in Naples consist of two parts: seeing how wine is truly made and experiencing what wine is truly made of. Some of the best vineyards to go for in Naples include the Cantina del Vesuvio in Trecase and the Cantine degli Astroni in Napoli, both of which also offer restaurant services.
Whether you’re up for a new kind of pizza or even just for anything like the Chateau de Beaucastel Wine, Naples has it all.
