This little street is full of artisan shops selling Christmas decorations, miniature models of old life in Napoli, miniatures of famous people (look out for Luis Suarez biting someone!) and other hand made products. Reasonable prices.

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
