I’ve only been to Naples once and guess what for? Pizza. Yup, that’s right!
Naples is known for having some of the best traditional pizza in the world so I had to go see for myself. I hopped on the train and went for just the day. It was a gloomy rainy day when I went back in 2012 so I didn’t explore much of the city center. Instead I went straight to L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele where the famous scene of Julia Roberts in Eat, Pray, Love was filmed!
There’s something truly special about a simple pizza made right. Fresh tomato sauce made from San Marzano tomatoes, soft and chewy crust, oozing mozzarella cheese, and fragrant green basil makes this pizza superb. I savored every second of eating this pizza and still have dreams of it! My mouth is actually watering as I type now!
So was my day trip worth the hassle? Absolutely. I cannot wait to go back to Naples again to eat this pizza (8.5/10) and try other Neapolitan specialties.
