Trianon Pizza, Naples, 2018

One does not visit Naples without having pizza (or espresso). Fortunately, we have our favorite pizzeria in Naples, Trianon. It is one of the two classic pizzerias in the city.

It's still all about the crust, the freshness of the ingredients, the atmosphere, etc. Plus, as #2, we think they try harder. Our past visit--with few changes--is at

those who prefer the quiet open spaces; we had spent all
our energy at the museum; and eating pizza

They're working on it...oh, I had my espresso at the metro station; even in a
metro station cafe, Naples espresso tops all others; I'm now a Kimbo fan....
