Stroll down the endless street, with a myriad of shops on both sides and absorb the vibrating heart of the city. The shops are ready for christmas, full of artifacts and presents, just adding to the festive atmosphere.

This is Thee Real Napoli, Real Italia! You get to view the many shops, vendors and street food on the original Greek settlement. Wonderful people. Don't believe all you've heard about crime; it's very safe during the day. Be "street smart" as in any large city. Enjoy the sights, people and food. You can't help but talk (just a little... More

Take the Metro Line 1 to Dante, as you exist the station face the piazza and walk left through the Porta Alba ancient city gate and you're in this stunning labyrinth of history and real life going on. The first street on your right after you walk through the gateway is full of musical instrument stores and you can hear... More

This is the street that divides Naples in half. I lived in this fantastic city for 3 years back in the early nineties...and what a clean-up the city (and the bureau of tourism!) have done to make it not only cleaner, and more attractive, but a most pleasant experience!! Just walking along between the shops and shopkeepers is an experience... More

I would say you can't visit this city without walking spaccanapoli at least once. It is THE street for a good slice of local culture!

In this street you find everything what Napels can offer you. Very small street where cars and vespa are trying to drive you off the street. Loads of very small tipical shops. A lot of christmas shops with christmas decoration. You want to know everything about Napolitan culture ? Walk through this street 😃

An absolute hub of activity, going past or near a number of important sights but also lined with cheap ugly trinket shops and packed with people. Conditions are ripe for pickpocketing. In the right frame of mind it could be fun, but if you're tired and it's hot out, it's miserable.

Walk the whole length of this marvelous street if you want to see Naples at its earthiest and best. All human life is here, and some wonderful food too.

What makes Napoli so special for travelers is that they cannot overwhelm a city of this size and scale. Chaos theory got its first application here. Napoli works, and Spaccanapoli is a microcosm as to why. You just have to watch. Pick a spot along the way, get out of the way, and let life go by for a period... More

Something that has to be experienced, it doesn't matter if it's raining, just wrap up and use your 'brolly'.... shops of all kinds, churches, museums... eateries... cafes...shops selling traditional pizza and 'pizza fritta' the fried pizza folded over with ricotta cheese filling... ice-creams... everything you could dream of, including the best pastries ever ! Just visit and enjoy !
