Take a walk in the bustling heart of Naples through alleys full of history and culture and discover one of the most authentic markets in the city.

Walk with a true Neapolitan among the stalls of seasonal fruits and fresh veggies at the Pignasecca market, the oldest street market in Naples. Enjoy a multicultural experience where Mediterranean languages and traditions get mixed. Get hypnotized by the chants of the fishmongers offering the best catch of the day such as mussels, clams, and anchovies, and meet vendors looking for the best customers of the day. Don't worry, the guide will teach you how to move around the market in search of good bargains.

Travel through the smells of the best street food and treat yourself with fried pizza on the go. Visit a temple for cheese lovers and meet his majesty the buffalo mozzarella.
Get ready for glimpses of Neapolitan life, between the aroma of coffee and the sizzle of meat sauce that comes out of the typical homes. Among its narrow alleys, you will see laundry hanging out to dry in the sun, the shutters of the stores full of murals, the inhabitants looking out from balconies ready to welcome you into their homes.

The Spanish Quarters are the beating heart of the city and discovering them with a local is a true experience. Listen to the stories and secrets of what has been a mysterious neighborhood for years. Spot street art such as Maradona's mural, and discover the most modern interactive work of Bosoletti. You'll find dozens of votive urbane shrines with floral decorations, historic stores such as pastry shops and semi-hidden restaurants, and the new craft realities of young people reinventing almost forgotten professions.
Drink a Neapolitan espresso and do not skip Toledo, the most stunning metro station in the world.
