It was lovely to wander around through the narrow old streets, sometimes blowing away by a scooter, enjoying to see the people and hearing the merchandisers, now about the small shops, visiting old beautiful churches...

Honestly I thaught that Naples was different, more like Rome, but it seems that the goverment has not been really interested in keeping the city in good shape. It was more dirty than latin american cityes and full of bad graffitti comments. This was the part of th city that still could captivate the visitor. It is full of life,... More

The Spaccanapoli is mostly a shopping street, but try to look beyond. This is a place filled with a mixture of tourists and true Napolitans. They love to help you experience the city. Try a Sfogliatelle (local sweet pastry) or the smorfya (local 'lottery game'), or just walk and enjoy the hustle and bustle.

We really enjoyed Naples and had no problems during our visit despite all the warnings. As you wander there are surprises at many stops along the way. It is clear that this city has a wonderful history. It is the the cleanest place but is certainly worth a visit.

An amazing place, so different from our American reality, in a moment it seemed to me to review all the historical pictures of the old Naples.

We spent the morning wandering along here, stopping off for drinks and ice creams and just sitting watching the action. There's interest everywhere and my camera never stopped clicking. Lots of strange shops and wonderful buildings and towers. We loved Naples and can't understand why it gets such a bad press.

With just one afternoon to explore Naples, this gave us a brief look into life in this teeming, gritty city. Our walk down this long, narrow ancient street immediately took us away from the noisy traffic and into the oldest part of the city. We passed markets, gelato shops, miniature collector stores, churches and women lowering their blue plastic buckets... More

Hard to say since it was raining that day but not much to see other than a historic street in Naples.

Carafa, Forino, Caracciolo and so many others, make this tiny street one of the finest of its kind in whole Europe.
