UNESCO World Heritage-listed Naples
Napoli is Caravaggio in city form – exuberant and earthy, a full-blooded hit of urban squalor and majestic grandeur, served up with unmatchable Italian passione and a voracious appetite for life. The humble pizza makes sense here: part refined art, part meal-in-a-hurry. A raft of fine pizzerias line up for attention amidst the bustle of Piazza Luigi Miraglia. Look out for the tell-tale sign outside stating they serve ‘la vera pizza napoletana’ – not just an idle boast, but a badge of honour restaurants must earn by serving up the staple in time-honoured fashion: a hand-tossed soft base, wood-baked with real mozzarella, sea salt and extra virgin olive oil.
