Keep talking. How great would it be to go with a group of pizza freaks and foodies in general?!

There is a place in Vico Equense, on the Amalfi coast that they call "the university of Pizza" they have three large wood fired ovens and you buy your pizza by the metre.ie. I'll have 60 cm of whatever. They prepare their pizzas on long wooden peels with the bases in long oval shapes. Vico is less expensive that many of the other more touristy places nearby like Sorrento and Positano.

Make sure you do go to Naples hold onto your belonging, dress like a pauper and enjoy the best pizzas in the world in a great city.
I loved it,lined up for a Margherita at what was supposedly the place where it all started.They give you a ticket and you wait in the street with a crowd waiting to be called in.
You share a table with a random Neapolitan family and have a choice of Margherita or Marinara a beer a coke or water.
It was fantastic

I've spent a lot of time in Italy, mostly in Liguria around La Spezia. It's a beautiful area - the Italian Riveira. Great seafood (all food really). It's much more relaxing than the big cities or tourist areas. They usually serve pizza accompanied with farinata - a pancake made of chick pea flour. Try it. Panigacci is also a local favorite - wood oven cooked flat bread served with stracchino cheese, salami, prosciuto cotto and crudo, and sopressata. Wonderful meal and something (along with farinata) I will make if I ever build my WFO.

There's great hiking in the area - the most famous being around Le Cinque Terre, but that's also touristy. Do the hikes between the five towns, but don't stay in the towns. Other great villages in the area are Lerici or Portovenere.

Other than Le Cinque Terre and Portofino (not worth the visit IMO) this is an area often overlooked by foreign tourists.
