Taralli e Birra

Not really a place, but every chalet from Mergellina and the whole Lungomare of Napoli.
With the help of a modern expression, one can say that Taralli e Birra is the Neapolitan version of happy hour, in the sense of really happy moment! The Tarallo "sugna e pepe" is one of the symbols of Naples, but little known to tourists. The characteristic kiosks serve them warm and fragrant, accompanied by an ice cold beer. The combination is perfect.
Neapolitans often take this joy, as an aperitif, after a walk, or at the end of a night partying. Last but not least: it is almost mandatory to stop in front of Taralli e Birra on the coast, and enjoy it for the most beautiful bay in the world.
