Journey into the center of the pizza universe with Daniel Young, author of Where To Eat Pizza, for the Naples & Caiazzo VIP Pizza Tour.
You’ll meet up with Daniel and the group in the historic center of Naples at the world-famous L’Antico Pizzeria Da Michele. We’ll talk, eat and live pizza with Alessandro Condurro, the great-grandson of Michele Condurro, who opened the family pizzeria in 1906.
Next, Attilio Bachetti, the pizzaiolo’s pizzaiolo, will prepare for us his signature calzone and stuffed-crust pizzas at Pizzeria Da Attilio.
From there we’ll travel by minibus to the hilltop village of Caiazzo, home to Pepe in Grani, the world’s greatest pizzeria. Master pizzaiolo Franco Pepe, our host in Caiazzo, will present a special tasting dinner featuring the 10 signature pizzas of his pizza life – and thereafter of your pizza life, too. Overnight you will recuperate from this demanding pizza marathon in a junior suite at the sumptuous and secluded Aquapetra Resort & Spa.
The next morning you’ll meet Mimmo La Vecchia, Franco’s mozzarella man, for a behind-the-scenes tour and tasting of his award-winning Mozzarella di Bufala at Caseificio Il Casolare.
With the tour finale, a pizza and wine tasting with the great Ciro Salvo at 50 Kalo in Naples, you’ll have made a huge dent in the 20 Pizzas to Eat Before You Die list. There’s no better way to experience the best pizza in the world than on the Naples & Caiazzo VIP Pizza Tour.
