Description

Explore New York’s Greenwich Village on a unique walking tour that combines a little history, some local color, and a lot of pizza! From coal-fired brick ovens to corner slice shops, the tour tracks the evolution of pizza as you stroll through one of the city’s most iconic neighborhoods. You’ll explore the evolution of pizza from southern Italy to its cheesy transformation in America’s industrial cities. Greenwich Village is the most pizza-diverse neighborhood in New York, and the area was once a thriving Little Italy. As you walk - and your guide fills you up with pizza knowledge - you'll stop at 3 pizzerias, each specializing in a different stage of the Italian tomato pie's development. Spend time with the owners and pizzaioli (pizza makers) to learn some of the tricks of the trade. Beyond learning about ancient pizza toppings and dough stretching techniques, compare the baking patterns of 3 different pizza ovens. By the end of the tour you’ll have a deep understanding of pizza’s origin, as well as its evolution into a worldwide phenomenon.
