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

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!
