Hubby and I had a Friday night tour with Marcello as part of our trip to Naples. This was by far one of the highlights of our trip. Not only did we get to try some of Naple's best food and drink, we also had a delightful time with our tour guide. Marcello was so knowledgeable about Naple's history and culture, and he was friendly, funny, and welcoming. We enjoyed meeting his friends and family at the last stop and learning all about Neopolitan traditions and language. As you can see, this was so much more than a food tour, and I wouldn't hesitate to go again if I had the chance! Grazie mille, Marcello!

Brandon K

Our guide, Aldo was excellent. His passion for both food and the city of Naples was obvious. He had everything coordinated perfectly, so we were able to walk into each location and get served effortlessly and he found spots that we absolutely could not have found ourselves. He educated us on the history of the city as we walked through and served us both the best Sfogliatelle we had in the city and the best eggplant I've had anywhere. After the tour concluded, he was happy to provide additional recommendations within the city of for the other stops on our trip. The ones we were able to try were all delicious. I was very happy to take this tour early in my visit and I only wish I could go back and eat more!

Gary C

The Napoli Food Tour with Aldo was a highlight of our 19 day vacation. Best food tour we’ve experienced. Stops for coffee, pasta omelette and pizza were woven seamlessly into our walk. Aldo didn’t partake in coffee, pastries or the omelette - we found out why. He was holding back. The award winning pizza was the best ever and don’t get too full prior to lunch like we did! Thank you Aldo and all the best to you, your wife and daughter!

Katy W

Aldo was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor! He adapted the tour to our needs, as we had two young boys with us, and WOW was it hot!! I would recommend him, and these tours, too anyone wanting to learn a little more about the food and its history in the city.

Shahdad Mohseyni

One of the best food experiences going. The guides are locals, knowledgeable of the history and trying to support local business who build the community up. The end of the tour is a magical experience with amazing views of Naples and a funny and heart warming sing along. Don’t be fooled about what you heard about Naples. These guys are doing what they can to change stereotypes and give you an amazing experience.

Amy Rood

Food, love, wine, and Napoli! 🇮🇹❤️ We only had a short visit in Naples, but this tour absolutely made it. Aldo is passionate about food and this region, and you can't resist joining in on the enthusiasm. We loved eating and drinking our way through the city, but more than anything, we loved the people.

Gail Mills

My daughter and I had our tour yesterday with Marcello and we could not have been more satisfied. Our group was small and personal and he felt more like a friend than guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and his passion for his city was very apparent. He was able to answer all our questions and the food was delish! We only had one full day in Naples and it gave us a real taste of Naples. Thank you Marcello!😊

Katy Wessel

Aldo was a fantastic, flexible, funny guide. This was our second Eating Europe tour (first was in Rome) and both were excellent. I would highly recommend these tours in whatever city they're available in. The guides, like Aldo, give some history of the liston as well as its relation to its cuisine.

Amy Keelty

We had a great time in Naples! The hosts were so knowledgeable and relatable, very easy conversation and they both had diverse experiences to share for anyone traveling. The stops were well spaced on timing, and provided nice range of tastes/flavors. We got our steps in, but needed when eating 😊 Trying to find 1 favorite stop but there were many.....the olives, parm, salami and wine were delicious. Making my own pizza was entertaining and tasted amazing! The rooftop view made me want to move to Italy! Great 4 hours, book it!

Alyson Jones

What an amazing time we had on this walking food tour! If I could give it a 6 out of 5 (or a 11 out of 10) I would. Marcello was the best guide ever! He was warm, fun and knowledgeable. I feel we got to know about the real Naples. I also feel we made a friend. The rooftop experience was spectacular. I cannot say enough good things about this tour. Don’t miss it! Highly enjoyed…and highly recommended.

Zoé D

Aldo was absolutely wonderful, and knowledgeable beyond compare - whether it’s about the food or the history of Naples, Italy - he covers all the bases and beyond to give you an immersive experience that leaves you with the feeling of having a met a great friend, as well as incredible food experiences you wouldn’t try anywhere else in Italy. We absolutely loved it and it was worth every penny. We couldn’t recommend this more! Grazie mille Aldo!!!

Max M

Would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Naples!! We learnt so much about this fascinating city while eating delicious Neapolitan food. The sfogliatella was amazing and we liked the spaghetti omelette so much we are going to attempt to make it back home! Our guide Aldo was super knowledgeable, friendly and fun. A real food lover with a great passion for Naples. He continued to offer tips and advice throughout our time in Naples. Always quick to help. Nothing was too much trouble. A real star. 🤩

Emily Kostadinoski

Our guide was so passionate and knowledgeable, this was much more than just a gastronomic delight. He combined the history of the city with the most authentic dishes, altogether making this an unforgettable experience. Pizza was the best I have ever eaten, period. Would never ever have eaten deep-fried pasta -but you must - it's great. Highly recommended.

Auður Ösp

It's well organised tour, the tour guide is great and really knew what he was talking about. He showed so much interest in us and our experience. He gave us so good tips about what and where to taste the best things. The guide, Aldo, really made this trip and we tried things we wouldn’t have chosen our self. I give him 12 out of 10.

Emma K

Only had one day in Naples but god I wish we had more. This tour was so good and we got to try some delicious food and learn about the history of the food culture in Napoli. The walking aspect wasn’t too intense as most of the places were situated quite close together. We did the rooftop tour and it was so worthwhile, only had 1 other person in our tour group it truly felt like a private tour, would definitely recommend and can’t wait to come back to Napoli again!!!

Naples City Guide

Traditions are still everything in Naples. The city prides itself on San Marzano tomatoes, which are grown nearby and are considered by many to be the best in the world, as well as the finest Lacryma Christi vines, ripened by stroking sea winds and the sun beating down on Vesuvius. The region produces the creamiest buffalo mozzarella in the world and grows its own indigenous broccoli, called friarelli. Cultivation methods are written into law to regulate producers, making it impossible to cut corners on quality. This abundance of produce then finds its way from fertile volcanic soil into the neighborhood markets, and locals take it home and cook it with care according to ancient recipes.

By publishing the stories of our local heroes, visiting them on culinary tours, or directly fundraising for them when they are in need, we attempt to honor their work and their essential role in maintaining the fabric of the city. Our purpose is twofold. Yes, we want to get travelers to some good places to eat. But we also want to make sure that some of these spots and the artisans making food there find a new audience and get the recognition and support they deserve. They are holding back the tide of globalized sameness, which is not easy work – even if it’s done unknowingly. But we believe that every meal counts and, with the help of our audience, they will add up. We are committed to their perseverance and hope that our modest efforts encourage them to keep at it. Our work is also guided by a belief in: Honest Tourism: The places where we eat and craftsmen that we feature on our culinary tours are all selected with this purpose in mind. We’d never accept a free lunch or consider a discount for our tour groups, because that would contradict our central goal, to support them. Nor do our guides receive any commissions from shopkeepers. Honest Journalism: The same principal is applied to the publishing of stories. There are no sponsored posts or even advertising on CB. The writers and photographers are paid fairly for their work on stories that we all believe in.

The cities we are drawn to all have a culinary tradition of untold richness as well as a certain tension, be it political instability, the tug between East and West, the clash between modern and ancient identities, migration, rapid gentrification, bankruptcy, or a post-colonial hangover. Our decision to get started in a city is always the result of a trip filled with many meals where we are given in intimate view of that tension, right there on the table. By getting lost in this warren of independent food purveyors struggling to preserve or adapt tradition in fast-paced urban life, we start to discover the deep complexity and true flavor of the city. At present, you’ll find our regular dispatches from Athens, Barcelona, Istanbul, Lisbon, Los Angeles, Marseille, Mexico City, Naples, Porto, Queens (NY), Shanghai, Tbilisi and Tokyo.

  • Reducing group size: Our small group tours just got smaller. During the initial reopening period, tours will be private at no additional charge. That means that the tour will only be you, your travel companions and your Culinary Backstreets guide.
  • Disinfection: Our guides carry hand sanitizer and provide it to guests frequently while also encouraging them to wash hands whenever a sink is available. Our guides also carry disinfecting wipes to clean surfaces during the tour or trip.
  • Maintaining social distancing requirements: Our guides maintain social distancing during tours and trips, according to regulations issued by local health authorities.
  • Wearing masks: Our guides and guests wear masks wherever required by local regulations. We request that guests come to the tour with their own mask, although our guides will provide masks to those who do not have one.
  • Visiting restaurants safely: Our tours and trips only visit restaurants and shops that are adhering to official safety standards and regulations and, where applicable, have been certified as such. We also avoid visiting restaurants during peak times so that they are less crowded and in order to not displace hungry locals. In restaurants and shops, our guides make sure that guests adhere to the establishments’ social distancing rules and ascertain whether the rules are being followed by other diners.
  • Tasting food safely: Our guides make sure that food is sampled and distributed safely and according to local health regulations.
  • Vaccinated guides: Most Culinary Backstreets guides have been vaccinated, and the few remaining are testing themselves regularly while they wait for the jab.


  • Going local: Our food tours and culinary trips continue to feature independent, family-run businesses and spotlight local products and small producers.
  • Respecting local needs: Since new regulations require restaurants to limit their seating, we will make sure that our tours and trips don’t displace local patrons.
  • Honoring tradition: We continue to honor the traditions of the communities we work with by promoting their cultural and culinary heritage.
  • Preserving community memory: By telling the stories of the unsung culinary heroes of these communities, we continue to help preserve community memory and keep the unique spirit of neighborhoods and their local businesses alive.
  • Expressing appreciation: Human contact with the local community is one of the joys of our tours and trips and the reason many of us travel. Despite the requirements of social distancing, we continue to safely express our appreciation of all the culinary masters we meet along the way.
  • Supporting independent businesses: Small, independent businesses are what make our cities and their culinary landscape so spectacular. These businesses — from neighborhood bodega in Barcelona to grill joints in Tokyo — are highly vulnerable these days and it is particularly challenging for them to adapt to the new conditions. Our support, now more than ever, is particularly important.
  • Reducing ground transportation: Conscious of the carbon footprint of our tours and trips, we are redoubling our effort to keep our tours and trips, as much as possible, on foot.
  • Reducing single-use plastic: We are working to reduce single-use plastics on all of our tours and trips, most significantly water bottles. We encourage guests to bring their own water bottle which we can refill throughout the day. We’re also persuading restaurants to offer filtered water as an alternative to plastic bottles.

Book with Confidence

  • Culinary Tours: 100% refund if cancelled up to 7 days prior to the tour date.
  • Multi-Day Trips: 100% refund if cancelled up to 90 days prior to the trip date.
  • In addition to the policies above, late cancellations will be given a 100% credit for future Culinary Backstreets activities.

Our Backstreets Envoys, Always Searching for the Next Hidden Gem

Amedeo, Naples Bureau Chief 

After 25 years in a career in communications, Amedeo finally succumbed to his true calling, dedicating his life to the study of a phenomenon that he calls “Neapolitan way of living”. The city’s unique cuisine, music, literature and local dialect are all a part of his ongoing research and the subject of lectures he gives at a local university. He is the author of several books about Naples, including Mangia Napoli, the definitive guide to eating in Naples and operates a publishing house called, Cultura Nova. His passion for Naples is best experienced walking with him in the backstreets, where he knows everyone by name and, most importantly, where to find the very best bites of the city.

Chiara, Naples Walk Leader

Sicily-born Chiara moved to Naples in order to attend the Oriental Languages University and fell hard for the unique city. As a professional guide, Chiara finds her work to be the perfect expression of all her interests such as art, archeology, history, culture, food, communication; in one word, her passion for her city.

Debora is a professional guide, and a proud Neapolitan. From the ancient alleys of Pompeii to the backstreets of Centro Storico, she feels right at home. Growing up just outside the old city walls means she knows the fishmonger and taralli baker on a first-name basis and she has strong opinions on who makes the best sfogliatelle in town. As a culinary guide, she sees herself as a bridge between visitors to the city and the culture-bearers of Neapolitan gastronomic heritage, hard at work in the kitchens around the city.

Francesca Russo is first and foremost a “Napoletana verace”, a true blue citizen of Naples, and her love of the city is infectious. For more than a decade she has been sharing her favorite parts of Naples as a professional guide. From the grand palaces to the humble backstreet trattoria, she’s always on the hunt for people and places that express the true identity of the city. She drives a vintage Fiat Uno, loves scuba diving and cycling. She makes a divine Neapolitan ragu.

Gianni, Naples Photographer 

Gianni Cipriano is a Sicilian-born independent photographer based in Napoli, Italy. His work focuses on contemporary social, political and economic issues. Gianni regularly works for The New York Times and has been documenting the ongoing upheaval in Italian politics for L’Espresso weekly magazine since 2013. His editorial work has also appeared in Time, Wired, The Wall Street Journal, Le Monde Magazine, The Guardian Weekend Magazine, among others. He graduated from the Documentary Photography and Photojournalism Program at the International Center of Photography in New York in 2008. He has received recognition and awards from POYI (Picture of the Year International), American Photography, New York Photo Awards, International Photography Awards and the the Ian Parry Scholarship. Gianni’s work has been showcased in group exhibitions in venues such as the Rencontres d’Arles, FOLI Lima Biennale of Photography, MOPLA, Lumix Festival for Young Photojournalism and at the MAXXI museum in Rome.

Giuseppe, Naples Correspondent

100% Neapolitan in the heart, blood and soul, Giuseppe – or, as everyone calls him, Peppe – worked his way around the world with a number of jobs. During the years he developed a passion for travel and food writing and has now found his true calling: educating the world on everything there’s to know about pizza, his favorite food. He has spent the last 10 years spreading the pizza gospel by any possible means: through his blog, writing articles for magazines, setting up events, hosting a podcast, publishing a newsletter and in any other way. When he’s in Naples (or even traveling), you’ll most likely find him sitting in a pizzeria.

Luciana, Naples Correspondent Born and raised in Naples, Luciana has been working as a journalist and food critic for more than 15 years, contributing to Italian and foreign guides and magazines such as Gambero Rosso, Identità Golose, Reporter Gourmet, Italy Magazine, Great Italian Chefs and Eater. She is currently senior editor at Food & Wine Italia and is co-founder and editor at A professional olive oil taster, she loves to trek around the Italian hills and mountains, travel all over the world and taste everything but snails.

Sara, Naples Photographer 

Sara graduated with full marks and honor in Architecture in 2013 at the University Federico II in Naples, Italy, with a thesis on the temporary reuse of abandoned spaces in the historical center of Naples and a mapping of its architectural objects. After her graduation she studied photography and worked as an assistant for a documentary photographer for one year. In 2014 she won a scholarship for a PhD in Urban Design at the University Federico II. Her research interests lie in the strategies for temporary reuse of abandoned space, visual representation of territories and the stories that live within.

Sonia, Naples Walk Leader Born and raised in Naples, Sonia studied art history, archaeology and Oriental languages before working for years as a schoolteacher. Eventually, her true passion- frescoed churches, incredibly rich archaeological sites, the cuisine and street life of Naples- led her out of the classroom and into the streets. Now, as a professional guide, Sonia gets to spend all of her time with her beloved subjects. Sonia is eager to challenge contemporary stereotypes of Naples by showing off the city’s classical beauty, hospitality and unique cuisine .

Stefania, Naples Walk Leader Naples native Stefania is truly in love with her hometown. Living in the buzzing heart of the city and working as a professional guide, her daily life is infused with the art, culture and gastronomy which make the city so special. But her favorite aspect of Neopolitan life is experiencing the city’s living culture: talking to the producers whose hands make mozzarella, pick tomatoes, knead pizza dough and sharing that connection with visitors to the city.

CB’s work was started in 2009 by Ansel Mullins and Yigal Schleifer as a humble food blog called Istanbul Eats. The following year we published a book of our reviews, now in its fifth edition. That year we also launched our first culinary walk in Istanbul, a route we are still using today. In 2012, we realized that what we built in Istanbul was needed in other cities we knew and loved. We started CB that year with Athens, Barcelona, Mexico City and Shanghai as pioneering members of our network. In 2013, we added Rio and also launched our iPhone application in Istanbul. In 2015, Tokyo and Tbilisi came into the fold. That year we published mini-guides to Barcelona and Athens and also launched an iPhone application in those cities. Our Eatinerary service, which provides travelers with tailor-made culinary travel itineraries, was also launched in 2015. In 2016, Lisbon – the latest city to kindle our curiosity – joined the CB network. In 2017 we added Naples and Queens, NY – two places with very compelling stories to tell – to our roster and also published full-size eating guides to Athens and Barcelona. In 2018, Porto joined the list of cities we cover.

Visual Dispatches from the Frontlines of Local Eating


Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.

Where is Naples?

Naples is a city in the Campania region in the south of Italy. Located in the center of the Mediterranean, it has been influenced by every corner of this sea: language, art, culture and, of course, gastronomy. Naples is the third-largest city in Italy in terms of population, after Milan and Rome, and is the cultural capital of southern Italy.

What are the best things to do in Naples?

A city founded by the Greeks, which then became Roman, Naples has more than 3,000 years of history and culture to explore. The ancient city center is entirely protected by UNESCO, and here it is possible to feast on the best pizza in the world – in the city where pizza was born. There are historic monuments, art galleries and architectural works to visit, as well as the seaside. Just half an hour by train is the most-visited archaeological site in the world, the lost city of Pompeii.

When is the best time of year to visit Naples?

The best time of year to visit Naples is from April to June and from September to October. The temperature is almost always mild, and even in winter it is often possible to eat outside. In April, there are Easter celebrations with a lot of different foods on offer. May is a month of culture, with many cultural heritage sites open into the evening. December is particularly festive, with Nativity scenes and Christmas sweets all over the city. August is hot and the city is quiet, with many businesses closed.

What is the weather like in Naples?
