Naples tourist information
Naples has one of the greatest density of cultural resources and monuments that include 2800 years of history (castles, fountains, churches, ancient architecture, etc.): the most prominent forms of architecture in Naples are from the Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque periods. The historic centre of Naples is typically the most fruitful for architecture and is in fact listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. A striking feature of Naples is the fact that it has 448 historical churches, making it one of the most Catholic cities in the world.
The Pizza is the most popular creation of all Neapolitan cuisine, and certainly the best known. Its roots are much older than the tomato that tops it, and is probably one of the oldest foods. An early type of pizza was present in the Roman age; it was a sort of wheat bun. But the pizza, as we know it today, (with the tomato sauce) is about two hundred years old. It soon became very popular among the people as well as barons or princes: it was largely present in the Bourbon court. King Ferdinand I experienced cooking pizza in Capodimonte's porcelain ovens. After Italian unification, the new kings were also attracted by this southern food. The pizzaiolo Raffaele Esposito created in 1889, in honor to queen Margherita of Savoy, a patriotic pizza, where the colors of the Italian flag were represented by the mozzarella (white), tomato (red) and basil (green). This pizza is called, since then the pizza Margherita. Pizza has a great taste, is cheap and is nutritious, so it had very quickly a great success. Sometimes pizza is also made on home's ovens, but the real Neapolitan pizza must be cooked in wood-fired oven, hand-made by an able pizziaiolo who makes the dough disk thinner in the center and thicker in the outer part; the ingredients and olive oil are rapidly spread on the disk, and with a quick movement the pizza is put on the shovel, then slid in the oven where it is turned around a few times for the best and uniform cooking.
