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.

You cannot visit Naples without taking a stroll along this street, stretching from Via Duomo to Via Toledo. Report of thieves and pickpockets seem exaggerated as we had no concerns at all. Using common sense to keep valuables out of site and cash in a money belt, you will have peace of mind, but there was no threat in our... More

If you like to watch people, wander streets, see an endless variety of items for sale, snack on pastries, gelato, pizza, and even fries now, you'll like spaccanapoli. Cutting straight through Naples makes it a good way to get to other places in the city.

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.
