10 Best Cooking Classes in Naples, Italy by an Italian [2024]

Planning to join some cooking classes in Naples to learn the craft of Italian cuisine? I totally support that idea! Check out the best classes in the city, handpicked by an Italian

Naples, the birthplace of pizza, is a foodie’s paradise. From the delicious, carb-loaded dishes like pasta and pizza, to the sweet and tangy desserts like tiramisu and limoncello, Naples offers a variety of mouth-watering delights for every palate. 

I’m getting hungry just typing this! I was born and raised in Bologna, just a few hours north of Naples, yet the cuisine in Italy is very regional.

Our traditional dishes in Bologna are different than in Naples, so every time I visit Naples I make it a point to eat as much as possible. But if you want to fully immerse yourself in the local cuisine, then why not take a cooking class?
