Culinary Walking Tour of Naples

Discover the culinary delights of Napoli with Kristin Melia, founder of Sauced & Found and author of the Napuleats column for Napoli Unplugged. Begin your walking tour with a famous nocciolato caffé at the historic il Vero Bar del Professore. Wander down the bustling Via Toledo sampling fried pizza at Zia Esterina Sorbillo. Pass through the vibrant Pignasecca Market, stopping for a cuppetiello of fried fish at the Pescheria Azzurra. Finally make your way up by funicular to the hilltop neighborhood of Vomero, also known as ‘broccoli hill’ by the locals. In Vomero, you will tour the ancient Antignano Market tasting farm fresh fruits along the way. You will also stop for a wine tasting at a local enoteca. The tour ends with an authentic Neapolitan lunch at Kristin’s Favorite Trattoria Malinconico.

Come hungry and experience Napoli as the locals do.

Culinary Tour of Amalfi Coast 

The Amalfi Coast may be most famous for its stunning beauty, but it also just as spectacular for its food. Tour the coast by private coach with Kristin Melia stopping along the way to sample local delights including Fiori di Latte Cheese, Sorrentine Tomatoes, Colatura of Alici, Granita and Limoncello. Kristin will explain the rich gastronomic history of this storied stretch of coastline while you eat and drink to your heart’s content. The tour concludes with a full Italian lunch in a private villa overlooking the coast.

Wine Tours

From Falanghina to Fiano, Aglianico to Piedirosso, the ancient Greeks brought their grapes to the region’s rich volcanic soil nearly 3,000 years ago. Tour the vineyards of the region with MassimoFlorio, sommelier and President of the Regione Campania Wine Association.
