Pasta in Naples, Italy
1 of 12
Food historians still debate whether Marco Polo introduced pasta to Italy by importing it from China in the 13th century, or whether the Etruscans had already embraced it long beforehand. But it’s generally agreed that by the 18th century Naples had turned the mixing of flour and water into a bona fide industry and was the world’s pasta capital. As an encore, Naples also arranged a blind date between pasta and squashed tomatoes, and romance blossomed. So the next time you’re wandering the crumbling streets of Naples’ historic center, make a beeline for the nearest trattoria and tuck into some authentic pasta napolitana.
