Traveling Back in Time with Freselle

Naples |
By  and
Naples -- On our Naples walk, we stop at one of the city’s storied “water banks” for a taste of the Neapolitan gazosa, a relatively simple concoction made of lemon juice, bicarbonate and sulfur water. The digestive power of this drink is extraordinary – it’s perfect if you went overboard with pasta or pizza (or both), or woke up with a killer hangover.
