Ancient and modern, old and new, coexist harmoniously, offering visitors a unique cultural experience.

Naples is famous for having invented pizza, which is perhaps the most consumed delicacy in the world. If you come to this city and don’t eat “real pizza”, then you can’t say you know Naples. But there is more. The entire region has a rich cuisine dating from the Greco-Roman period, and which is full of local produce, from vegetables to fish and seafood. Try the timballo and sartù di riso, without forgetting the Italian pasta that the best seafood enriches so magnificently.
