WHAT TO SEE IN NAPLES
You cannot say that you have seen Naples if you have not crossed Spaccanapoli, the road that connects the Spanish with the Forcella districts. With its churches and palaces, it holds the history and culture of the city. The Royal Palace and the Basilica of San Francesco di Paola overlook Piazza del Plebiscito. Afterwards, also visit Sansevero Chapel and via San Gregorio Armeno, the National Archaeological Museum and the Cathedral of Naples, with the Chapel and the Treasure of San Gennaro. Finally, discover the Underground Naples and enter the tunnels that run beneath the city. Add the National Museum of Capodimonte and the Certosa di San Martino to your itinerary.
If you have time, also visit the Royal Palace of Portici. Among the places of interest outside the city are the archaeological excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the Phlegraean Fields and the coastal towns of Sorrento and Amalfi. Finally, take a tour of the neighboring islands, first of all Capri, Ischia and Procida.
If you say Naples you say pizza. Tradition has it that it is Margherita, but you try it in all its variations, includingf ried pizza and pizza e scarole. Fried foods are another cornerstone of Neapolitan cuisine. Mozzarella in a carriage, sciurilli (courgette flowers in batter), zeppole (fried dough) and panzerotti, pasta omelette and cuoppi di mare: there is something for everyone!
The list of first courses is long: paccheri with Neapolitan ragù, ziti alla genovese, lightning and thunder (pasta andchickpea), puttanesca pasta, pasta with potatoes and provola and spaghetti with clams. For those who don’t eat pasta, there is rice sartù (rice timbale) or potato gateau.
For second courses, choose between sausage and friarelli (turnip greens), stuffed aubergines boats, beans and mussels, peppered mussels and octopus alla Luciana.
Typical side dishes to accompany your main courses are zucchini alla scapece (courgette with garlic and mint) or melanzane a funghetto (aubergines mushroom-style).
And for dessert? You are spoiled for choice. From the famous babà to the struffoli (small dough balls, fried and then covered with honey), the sfogliatelle, the graffe (fried doughnut), up to the snowflakes (mouth watering pastry filled with cream), the caprese cake and the delizie al limone (mini sponge cakes filled and topped with a smooth lemon custard).
