Full description

Avoid the tourist spots and delight in a personally-curated tasting menu to entice the senses with your Neapolitan foodie guide, Davide. He has a background in agronomy and gastronomy and will lead you through the city’s Slow Food scene where you can eat like the local foodies do. 

Start your tasting journey at the Neoclassical-style square, Piazza Dante. Try a selection of traditional snacks cooked and served in various ways: think eggplant, artichoke, zucchini, and more. Head to the historical Pignasecca Market and experience the bustling Mediterranean market culture.

Fulfill that cheese craving with tastings of Mozzarella di Bufala and Fior di Latte. Try fried pizza and different kinds of traditional pizza. Walk past the fruit shops and bakeries on Spaccanapoli Street and learn about how the Neopolitan culture has changed since WWII. 

While your Pasta Ragù is cooking, explore the Piazza San Domenico Maggiore with its churches and confectioneries. Savor some local sweets such as Sfogliatella or Babà.

It was a beautiful gastronomic experience and not only ... Davide while walking along the streets in the heart of Naples gives you lots of information and cheers you up with lots of curiosities: all seasoned with healthy Neapolitan good humor. Davide is very competent and the tour is proof of this: during the almost three hours spent together we were able to appreciate the perfect combination of English professionalism and composed cheerfulness. In addition, the tastings that are made during the tour are of good quality. Recommended tour

Truly a different, special tour. A cultural journey through the gastronomic history of Naples and the opportunity to try typical Italian food from a not-so-commercial point of view. Davide does it great, not only because of his knowledge of Neapolitan history and culture, but also because of the philosophy of life that he transmits. I did not know the Slow Food movement and I was pleasantly surprised. Totally recommended experience if you visit Naples. Thank you Davide, it has been a pleasure.

Do you want to know how to eat real street food in Naples? Trust Davide and his Slowfood tour. Almost three hours around places mostly unknown to tourists, off the main roads, tasting the real pizza, the buffalo mozzarella DOP and the typical cheeses, tasting the fried street food, the Neapolitan ragù, passing through the hot taralli and ending with classic desserts. All filled with the sympathy of Davide, who tells you 100 anecdotes and acts as Cicero's for Spacca Napoli and its surroundings. An evening flown in the company of a few friends but which will be part of the memories of a nice holiday. Highly recommended !!!
