Naples Food Tour
Pizza Making Class
Can I participate food tours if I have food allergies or other dietary restrictions?
Yes. If you have any specific allergies/intolerances please indicate these in the Notes section when you're booking and your guide will do his or her best to accommodate. Vegetarian, gluten-free, and nut-free diets can certainly be accommodated, although the shops we visit do use wheat flour and nuts in the kitchen for other items. If you are booking privately, we can customize a route that will avoid such items, something that we cannot fully do on our small group walks.
Does the pizza making workshop follow the process from A to Z?
As pizza dough takes hours to prepare and to let it rise and everything, we do not prepare our own dough. However, the guide and pizzaiolo will talk through the steps on how it's made, then clients stretch the dough and add toppings.
Although this isn't a full sit-down meal, between the tastings and pizza, clients usually are well-sated by the end of the experience and do not need to make lunch or dinner reservations for afterwards.
Is this tour wheelchair accessible?
Some of the shops we visit are small and many will have a step up to access them. The general route may include small streets with narrow sidewalks. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding accessibility. We are also happy to design a private, customized tour for visitors with mobility concerns.
Tours operate rain or shine, but in the case of inclement weather, your guide will modify the tour so more time is spent indoors. It never hurts to have an umbrella on hand.
