Oldest street in the world!!!

This is the oldest street in the world; in that it fully preserves the original layout the Romans created over 2000 years ago. It is perfectly aligned along the East-West axis, so... read more

This is the oldest street in the world; in that it fully preserves the original layout the Romans created over 2000 years ago. It is perfectly aligned along the East-West axis, so that all around the year you can see the sun get up at one tip of the alley and go down at the opposite tip of this 2-mile-long... More

Great place to just walk, watch and be surrounded by the Neapolitan atmosphere with its little alley ways and treasures. There are little shops and great eateries. Of course, some places are just turist traps so you just have to be a little careful, but I immensely enjoyed walking here and listening to the street musicians.

Spectacular view of a well known street that splits the city of Napoli in half. Full of all kinds of stores offering a wide variety of interesting things. Restaurants and caffes are a must stop.

Some good sights to see and some lovely little eateries and cafes to be found. Tourist style shops. Can get very busy at times. Worth it just for a look round.

This is stereotypically Napoli, but also Italy. When you're in the city, you have to go here and just watch.

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!
