5) The quality of the Mediterranean ingredients

Naples overlooks the Mediterranean Sea, so it has a high quality and fresh variety of products. For example, the tomato, (typical ingredient of the Campania region) is also known as “the red gold of the Campania region) and its most famous type is the so called San Marzano. Furthermore, we have the olive oil, fishes, cheeses (mozzarella and caciocavallo type, among many) and many other products.
