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 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
