Very characteristic.

In my opinion is one of the best places and ways to understand Naples a bit better. You will see the real soul of the Neapolitan people. A bit loud but with a big heart

This is the heart of Napoli. If you are in the mood to shop, come here. Need a place to meet friends, come here. Need a landing spot to launch your Napoli sightseeing, start here. You truly see Italian life here. Everything is close, the plazas, the mall, the quaint little streets that sell all the famous christmas stuff, pasta... More

I think that if you do not walk those two narrow streets of Naples you have miss the soul of the city. Full of people, small shops with traditional and other objects, small pizzerias, churches, really worth to spend some time to explore them.

If you are agoraphobic abstain. A side of Naples that must be seen to make your trip a complete one. Go and see the Caravaggio it is another must.

This is an interesting area to visit but if you wander a little off the beaten track (which is very easy to do), you can enter into some very unsavoury areas. Be aware and alert.

walked through this area many times as we roamed in naples. I loved naples and the many interesting sights and historic buildings. always a lot of people in this area. we stayed by the water and had to go through this area to do most of our sight seeing.

If you go to Naples, I guess you have to go down this street at least once, since it's probably the most famous street in Naples. But it is really just a bunch of average shops and restaurants, nothing special. I'm glad I did it once, but if I went back to Naples I wouldn't be interested in doing it... More

I had read all the negative reviews of Naples, do yourself a favor and take a city tour with a private guide (see my other reviews). It completely changed my view of the city and I learned so much about this fascinating place. This area is the original area of Naples. Busy but take a stroll among all the shops,... More

We spent beautiful days in Naples, it was so fun to visit the city. This beautiful street is very folkloristic and crowded (sometimes too much), Spacanapoli is the heart of the city.
