Did you know Naples is home of the pizza? Wherever you are in the city, you are not too far from an oven, crackling wood and an amazing aroma of freshly baked pizza. The city takes this food SO seriously that in 2004, the ministry of agriculture issued regulations outlining how a real Neapolitan pizza should be made! Now those are some SERIOUS pizza lovers! See our list below for the yummies places to grab a pie (as well as some other dishes to fancy) as you stroll this amazing city and take in all it has to offer.
