There is more to Naples that we were able to experience in our short stay (don’t miss the Veiled Christ sculpture, remarkable) but I did manage to go on a foodie tour (of course) and had a bit of an insider look at the Naple’s food scene that I am happy to share it with you.
I booked a tour with Food Tours of Naples. It being off season we ended up having a private tour with the lovely Napolitana guide Susy. We met her in the morning at the landmark Storico Gran Caffe Gambrinus. This is no ordinary cafe. A belle epoque palazzo like place, located in Piazza Plebiscito, was founded in 1860 and over the centuries served the likes of Oscar Wilde, Giovanni Agnelli and visiting royalty. The grand rooms feature soaring ceiling, broad arches, crystal chandeliers and gold motifs and serve as a backdrop to some of the best coffees and pastries in Naples.
