Lonely Planet review
Pozzuoli's atmospheric fish market is just the spot for an appetising morning stroll. Good weather brings in the best catches, with local staples including pesce azzurro (mackeral), pesce bandiera (sailfish), seppie (squid), polipi (octopus), alici (anchovies) and gamberoni (giant prawns). The second of the two aisles is a mouth-watering spectacle of robust salami and salsiccie (sausages), plump cheeses, local fruits and vegetables, and crunchy casareccio (home-style) bread.
Peckish? Stock up for an impromptu picnic on nearby Monte Nuovo . The market is an easy 300m walk northwest of the ancient market ruins of the Tempio di Serapide .
