When the moon hits your eyes like a big pizza pie… that’s NAPLES! Founded 2,800 years ago as a Greek colony called “Parthenope,” Naples is the third largest city in Italy and its historic city center was named World Heritage Site by the UNESCO and is the largest of all Europe!
Enjoy a walk in the alleys of this cozy and welcoming town and taste authentic pizza! The original recipe, in all its variants, is cooked by a pizza chef or a “pizzaiolo”, and it is wood-fired baked in a stone oven. Did you know that pizza Margherita includes the Italian flag in the colors: green basil, white mozzarella, and red tomato sauce? Learn the history of the recipe of the most famous pizza in the world as you taste it: Margherita pizza was named after the Queen of Savoy’s visit to the city in 1889.
For Neapolitan, pizza is not only the most famous food in the world; it is an art; it was also recently awarded by UNESCO’s as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity!
