Since we were only in Naples for the day, I wanted to make sure we got the feel for the city and got to see as much as possible. Walking down this street really took care of that for us.

A very atmospheric area at the heart of old Napoli with numerous old, majestic buildings and churches, and a variety of bars and eateries. Particularly well worth visiting the Santa Chiara church and cloister.

This narrow crowded,hot,dusty dirty and smelly at times street splits Naples and provides a real sense of the town. People live and work here all the time, it never shuts.

Fun area, Lots to do and see. Stopped for pizza and beer. But hold on to your wallet and your phone! Guy tried to grab mine, and when I confronted him, he just smiled and walked quickly away. Careful!
