Tour description provided by Viator

Eat your way around Naples on a day trip from Rome, and learn all about the ingredients from the city and the surrounding Campania region! With a local guide, chow down on treats such as Neapolitan espresso, pizza and pastries, and visit locally loved coffee houses as well as some of the must-see attractions. Wander around Naples fish market, pass craftsmen making nativity scenes at San Gregorio Armeno, and admire views as fabulous as the food from the top of the Naples funicular.

Start your day with a pickup from your central Rome hotel or alternatively, meet your guide in the center of town. Then, sit back and relax as you travel south to the Campania region while listening to your guide talk to you about the food in Italy’s sunny south. Birthplace of pizza and home to (arguably) the world’s best buffalo mozzarella, Campania is a culinary hotspot and its some of its most tantalizing treats can be found in its capital: Naples.

After roughly 2.5 hours on the road, arrive in the coastal city and hop out of your coach for a Neapolitan espresso to perk you up after your journey. As you sip on the strong and bitter brew, learn about the history of the humble espresso and the coffee-drinking etiquette in Naples.

Feeling revived, immerse yourself in the colorful chaos of Naples' fish market where the catches of the day are touted to many a passer-by. Browse stalls heaving with glistening shellfish and soak up the atmosphere, the air dense with bartering between locals and the market’s rubber-booted vendors. Pass through the stalls and wander to San Gregorio Armeno, a street known as ‘Christmas alley,’ where local craftsmen make nativity scenes. Shops with twinkling Christmas lights are open all year round, and you’ll have chance to browse their wares as you walk.

Stop for a sample of pizza fritta (fried pizza) – a popular Neapolitan street snack – and then take the Naples funicular up to the vantage point of Vomero. Enjoy another pizza at the top while admiring views over the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius in the distance.

Head back into town for your final food stop at Gambrinus, a legendary local coffee house, to try their prized sfogliatella and babà(two types of pastries), and then finish your tour of Naples with a walk around Piazza del Plebiscito and the Galleria Umberto I shopping arcade.

Return to your coach and relax on the journey back to Rome, finishing your day with a drop-off in town.
