The area offers any number of family-owned, friendly pizzerias to satisfy not just the hunger for excellent pizza but also a desire to get a true taste of the neighborhood and area. Head over to Pizzeria Vomero and settle in for some hot and fresh pizza that’s truly top-notch. The guide will make recommendations where to have lunch.

Villa Floridiana/Castle of St. Elmo: Ferdinand IV’s wedding gift to the duchess of Florida, Villa Floridiana is a beautiful open public park. After Ferdinand’s purchase of the mansion, the gardens were planted in their current manner and offer a wonderful environment for walking and enjoying the outdoors. The actual villa, built in the early 1800s in a neoclassical style, is used now by the Martina National Museum of Ceramics, and houses a variety of porcelain and majolica works. A medieval fortress with an extensive political history dating all the way back to 1275, the Castle of St. Elmo has gone through years of change, including years of destruction, reconstruction and the addition of new parts. The foundation of the castle is built on volcanic rock, and for years was used as a symbol of political oppression, a prison. However, now the multi-purpose, structurally sound castle stands as a landmark attraction and is definitely worth a visit.
