Living under the shadow of the volcano can’t fail to leave its mark on the people – and their cuisine. The pizza known throughout the world was invented in Naples. “Espresso Sospeso” is a tradition here, and only here. And you can enjoy volcanic wines with flamboyant names such as Lacryma Christi – the tears of Our Lord. The food is as individual as the Napolitanians themselves, so it’s well worth getting to know both of them better: With Food Hopping, you’ll discover the essence of Napolitanian taste and experience unique extras!
