Naples has a side that few visitors get to see. Tom Downey and Neil Gower's graphic novella takes you on a hunt for one of its treasures–the perfect slice of pizza–and on a delectable tour of other insider spots. 
The uniqueness of Neapolitan pizza comes from its ingredients—tomatoes grown in the volcanic soil of Vesuvius, cheese made locally and served as soon as it's ready, crust formed from a storied starter. Most bars in Naples are really cafĂ©s, which is too bad because it means there are fewer places to sample the memorable wines of Campania. 
Perched between Naples and Ischia, Procida is utterly different from its popular neighbors in the Bay of Naples. Even in high season, it manages to maintain a local feel. During off-peak times, you may be the only non-native wandering among the tightly packed pastel buildings in the port of Corricella, a stunning little Mediterranean harbor.
