Naples

Think of Naples as the bad boy of Italian cities. With the grit of an ancient port town, a smoking volcano keeping watch, and shadowy tales of Camorra mafioso lurking in the age-stained backstreets, it’s hardly your typical sun, sand, and sea vacation spot. Only, Naples is gorgeous, set on a wide bay that sparkles sky blue, between handsome hills dashed with tomato farms. And it’s got a secret weapon up its sleeve. No, not knuckle dusters. Pizza. This is the home of the dish. The legendary L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele is the place to try it: totally simple, with passata, buffalo mozzarella, basil, and chewy dough. Be ready to queue for a table.

  • 41 of the Best Things to Do in Italy

    Oh, Italy— you boot-shaped beauty, you. With your pizza-spinning chefs, OTT hand gestures, truffle-scented tagliatelle and creamy gelato, there’s really nowhere else that can match. From north to south, you range from ice-capped Dolomites covered in snow to wave-lapped pebble coves baked in 80-degree sun. And between the two…well…let’s just say it’s a panini sandwich […]
