Neapolitans are walkers and the Spaccanapoli is a place to get to know them. It's a collection of specialty shops mixed with touristy-type shops, churches, street vendors and laundry strung on balconies that taken together give you a personal experience of the vibrant warmth of the city. Shop owners are proud of their goods and are happy to give you... More

We traveled the length of the Spaccanapoli after hearing all of the warnings about crime etc. Just leave your preconceptions behind along with your expensive cameras etc and just enjoy this absolutely buzzing area. We never felt threatened or in any danger at any point and were welcomed with a smile and great service everywhere we stopped. If you are... More

The Spaccanapoli is the main walking street in the Centro Storico of Naples. It's a fabulous walking street, taking you past churches, food stands, shops and restaurants. You can walk into various Naples neighborhoods and see the real Naples off of Spaccanapoli. I loved walking this day and night and seeing Naples unfold in front of me.

When I walk in these area, beside the tourist I can see the normal people living here and giving to this place the great warm of the people of Napoli. Remember to walk always without jewels and expensive watches just to avoid bad experience. Otherwise the place is safe and enjoyable.

While in beautiful Napoli, you need to visit this area in the middle of Napoli. Long, narrow streets filled with Neapolitan character, beautiful people and loud, loud Italians! While roaming through these filled and chaotic streets, I imagined my Great grandparents walking through the same streets so many years ago... You'll hear yelling, people arguing and many, many shops! Get... More

It's so funny to see some bad reviews. Naples is old school Italy folks. That's part of the beauty of this places, untouched to some extent, and still in it's authentic form. This neighborhood is great for walking around and just feeling like you are walking through a gem part of the city. Great shops, places to grab something to... More

The Main Street through the old quarter. A few pretty churches, otherwise cheap cafes and shops selling junk. If you want to visit Naples don't spend more than a day here, and a couple of hours on Spaccanapoli is enough.

I had an image of a wide, more modern street, so I was very surprised to find a narrow, utterly charming (or not, depending on your view) street. Ok, basically tourist shops on all sides, interrupted by some sights (mostly churches). But take a leisurely stroll from Via Toledo to at least the Duomo, or all the way to the... More

Spaccanapoli is in old Greek Road that use to split Naples in half. Obviously the city is much bigger today. It is best viewed from above at Saint Elmo's castle. The very beginning of Spaccanapoli by Montesanto train station is probably the most authentic part where real Italians are milling about and shopping at the live fish markets and some... More
