This church contains the relics of the Saint who brought Christianity to Armenia, which was the first stage to officially make Christianity its religion. But if you ask many people in Napoli, they can't tell you why the church is called Gregoro Armeno. Most Sundays its only open until 12 but the last weekend of December before Christmas they're open... More

First be aware that under this listing people are commenting on the church and the street lined with shops selling presepe (nativity items). These should be two separate listings. We went here on the 14th with a group from our village. The crowds were unbearable. We were packed in like sardines and several times the flow stopped as no one... More

It's the heart of the downtown... full of life, colours, people on the move. I really loved it! I visited it during my day in Naples wit Napolinvespa Tour. Naples is an amazing city!

The views out of the window onto the Centro Storico compete with Caravaggio for your attention. Walk around!

Always love going for a stroll here. In particular are the christmas cribs and all the various shops. It is like taking step back in time... If you see it, stop by Gay-Odin for some delicious chocolates!

This convent is not usually open to the public and so, when my cousin told me that many places normally closed to the public were being opened just for this month, I jumped at the opportunity. This convent is in the heart of Naples, just off via San Biagio ai Librai not far from San Domenico Maggiore. It dates back... More

This church is incredible. The organs are not to be missed. Watch out for the nuns. It is a little hard to find but worth it. The street is a fun festival of shops.

My wife is a Christmas nut. This street/area was on her not-to-be-missed list for our recent Naples visit. A little schlocky (no surprise) but very interesting nonetheless. Came away with a moderately priced nativity scene that made my wife happy - so who can complain? Not a religious artifacts street like those near the Vatican, and not quite as touristy... More
