We had a lot of fun walking the Spaccanapoli section of Naples. Exploring all of the little side streets and alley ways was enjoyable. While I never felt unsafe whatsoever I would just make sure to keep an eye on your wallet and valuables, just to be safe like you would in any other city. If you are in Naples... More

Not the best of looking establishments and the seating is quite cramped outside, but the food makes up for it. Pizza is a must in Italy and i'd check this place out to get one!

If you spend just a day in napoli, do not miss this street (with a series of names) dividing the old city, but also connecting the garibaldi train station on the east, to funiculare de montesanto on the west. Stop in a few churches, see the locals, enjoy the ice cream at gay odin, step a few streets away to... More

While staying in Sorrento we had a day trip to Naples. I was so excited. We got the Circumvesuviana train there. 1 hour 15 minutes of sweaty hell. Do not trust the timetables too. But I digress. So pleased to get there. Stepped out of the station and decided to walk straight ahead down what seemed a main street -... More

You would be fool to miss this maze of age-old alleys and all that is to see around them - sone of the best churches, most of the best pizzerias. In some level there is something tragic about this area, you can see and smell the poverty, and there is very little romance in that. But this is still a... More

We spent a few hours in Naples on an afternoon in June, and walking along the Spaccanapoli was the highlight. It was a great place to wander along, look up the little side streets, and watch locals go about their business. There are plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants, and many of the big attractions in Naples are nearby.

This was a cute street. And thank goodness they have it because if I got lost or needed food I could come back to this street and find my starting point. Lots going on and crazy how small the streets are and cars still drive down them even when filled with people!
