The dark force of the Aston Martin Vanquish Carbon Edition, a confident and sophisticated grand tourer, is the perfect companion to perform the macabre Napolitan ritual of adopting a skull. Legend has it that if a person visiting the city’s underground tombs cares for the skull and bones of an unknown dead by bringing it gifts, clothes, pillows or flowers, the souls belonging to the skulls are supposed to protect and grant favours to their caretakers.
Napolitans take their pizza making seriously, so much so that the department of agriculture has outlined regulations on how the real Neapolitan pizza should be made. Take part of this serious industry and drive your Aston Martin V12 Vantage, the most ferocious Aston Martin ever produced, on a quest to find the best pizza in town. Truth be told, wherever you are in the city, you’re never far from an oven, the sound of crackling wood and the delicious smell of freshly baked pizza.
Stroll along the seafront promenade from Santa Lucia to Mergellina while you slurp away some gelato available in a bewildering array of flavours. Keep an eye for clusters of padlocks attached to poles, painted with the names or initials of couples that want to ‘lock-in’ their true love.
From historic prevalence, traditional pizza and gelato, to intriguing rituals, discover it all onboard an Aston Martin car hire in Naples.
