If you are in the market for Christmas decorations of all sorts as well as Crèche's, this is the place to go. The wares are handmade on the spot by local artisans. It's a narrow street, may be 75 to 100 yards long and very crowded as are all streets in Naples. We bought two very nice angels.

a place not to be missed for those who want to visit the "heart" of the city of Naples, the road is just as it is marked on the guides, full of local people and life, mixed with the faces of curious tourists: visit it!

If you are fascinated from the traditions related to Christmas, you have to visit this site just before Christmas. In the true core of the historical downtown (few meter under your feet there are the excavations of the Roman layer of the city, and some meter more deep there are the excavations of Greek layer!), in a very short and...

You will be amazed by that place. You've never seen so many people in a so narrow street! If you decide to come during Xmas Holidays...it's at your own risk ;) people everywhere. It's a "must do" when you're in Naples. What will you see? Many Nativity scenes, Pulcinella and some other character from the Neapolitan Folklore. In my personal... More

A short, narrow alley absolutely jam-packed with nativity scenes, figurines and models. A colourful and animated stroll through a cobbled alley with lots of character. Well worth visiting!

After reading many of the previous reviews I put a visit to Naples San gregorio Armeno on our "must do" list. Our guide tried to warn us that many shops would be closed since it wasn't near the Christmas season but we had no idea that meant almost all of them! Of the remaining open shops only one displayed original... More

The privately owned little chapel of Sanservero is a cornucopia of treasures. However,a lesser well known church of San Gregrio Armeno,provides an oasis of cool silence from the constant hubbub outside in the streets of the same name,where for generations Neapolitans have manufactured xmas mangers. This church was founded as a convent for the wayward daughters of the nobility,and is... More

For those who have never been to Naples can not even imagine what you are missing out, only this attraction that this small district located in the heart of Naples is the thing for which it is worth coming here. Among the small alleys and narrow streets are the famous shops where craftsmen build 365 days a year the famous... More

An amazing narrow street that connects two of Naples most amazing streets, Via dei Tribunali and Via San Biagio dei Librai. The street is lined with shops selling amazing nativity scenes. As well as all manner of kitsch ornaments, figurines and artworks.

It should not be considered as an exibition rather than a valuable Christmas craftmanship market. The area is quite small, the alleys are narrow and can easily become overcrowded, but it's worth a visit without any doubt. Some pieces are really outstanding.
