It is where all the best church's are. Including the chapel that houses the veiled Christ. And the cathedral. Great bars.

In this part of the city, you can feel, taste and smell the real Napoli. The surroundings might seem a little forgotten in terms of municipal services yet the shops and their keepers are more welcoming and sincere than in any other part of the city, as far as I experienced. Just spare an hour or so for strolling around... More

It is not unique as the idea, but it has the most unique charm especially during the evening. We walked almost daily for more than a week between smells and crowd and almost build one into another buildings, yet it is a unique experience if you are interested to understand Naples.

Small streets with high buildings around. Almost impossible to see the sun. Traditional christmass figurines, Pizza, noise, traffic confusion. The atmosfair of this area is unique. You can feel the character and the energy of the area in your skin. Beware for pick pockets

This is a very charming part of old Naples. It's a little touristy but its still lots of fun to walk around the charming shops selling food and little figurines. If you're in Naples it would be a shame to miss this neighborhood, especially as there are many old churches and piazzas.

Not to be missed in Naples. Interesting little shops. From handmade pasta to perfume. Shopowners not willing to accept American money, though

This was on my to do list absed on what I had read so much about it on tripadvisor. Sadly I could see nothing that would want me to to do it twice. Yes there are historic churches and many alleys and piazza but sadly some of the inhabitants give it an unfriendly feel.

Long narrow street, teeming with life and opening onto small piazzas, it cuts old Naples in half and is home to many of the must see churches and attractions in the city.
