Day 7

Yesterday evening we had a family gathering, which was lovely and special event. Then, in true southern Italian style, after 10 o’clock at night, it was time for a snack.

Not a piece of Cadbury’s chocolate, oh no, not here. Neapolitans with good taste, go to Ciro’s patisserie, (which by the way is open 24/7, even Christmas Day!)

Ciro has two patisserie shops in Napoli, one in Vomero and the other in Mergellina. I have even included a picture of his cake box to show you he has been going since 1952, with his slogan- I make you happy- and he certainly does.

Inside the boxes were cornetti, filled with chocolate, or vanilla or tasty pistachio cream.

However, I ate a delicious graffe, which was the best I had ever tasted in my life!!! Truly!!! It was warm, light and very tasty. I insist that you definitely have one if you ever visit Napoli 😋
