Eat like a king with the best pizza places in Naples, Italy - Image

This year, millions of travellers will take to the skies to explore the world on their summer vacation, and a lucky few will be heading to the city of Naples in Italy. Also known as Napoli, Naples is one of the most beautiful and culturally rich destinations in the country – and also home to some of the most delectable and delicious foods in the world. 

While the city boasts a number of culinary traditions, most visitors will likely be interested in one thing and one thing only - pizza. Neapolitan pizza typically features locally sourced ingredients like San Marzano tomatoes and mozzarella di bufala Campana, and offers a delicious spin on the familiar North American pizza most are likely used to. 

Unlike fast food pizza chains where guests can pick their preferred toppings individually, Italian pizzerias invite guests to choose from unique regional varieties like the Siciliana, Diavola, Salsicca e friarelli and the margherita. 

As far as where to get the best pies in town, Fodor's recommends Da Michele, a classic pizzeria with more than 130 years of history spent honing the recipes of both their marinara and margherita pizzas. Reviewers highlight the eatery's lively atmosphere and low prices as additional benefits to its delicious pizzas.
