Trip Overview
Overview

Nestled between Mount Vesuvius and the sparkling blue waters of the Mediterranean, Naples is a city of vivid beauty, intense street life, and world-famous cuisine, home to both the world’s original pizza and oldest opera house. On our culinary adventure in and around this fascinating metropolis, developed in partnership with Culinary Backstreets, we’ll be exploring various layers of cuisine and culture, using the city’s famous cooking as a window into daily life. We’ll meet artisans who keep the city fed, sample from producers of speciality products such as buffalo mozzarella, and visit vineyards and farms with the volcanic soil of Vesuvius beneath our feet. We’ll explore hidden workshops tucked into the dark alleys of the city, where a cadre of old masters practice obsolete trades like umbrella repair and sign painting. Along the way we’ll also dive deep into the spiritual side of the city, including venturing into an underground ossuary and visiting a streetside savant who’ll help interpret our dreams. And, of course, most importantly, we’ll experience the singular miracle of Neapolitan pizza.

Our partner, Culinary BackstreetsIn order to create and curate this unique experience, we’ve partnered closely with Culinary Backstreets, a global guide to local eats that publishes restaurant reviews and features on local culinary culture. They bring these stories to life on culinary tours and special events, offered in 12 cities around the world, and have extensive international experience with all things gastronomical.
