After you visited this beautiful church, try to visit the monastery, where nuns still live, and are in charge of children from poor or imprisoned parents. You may get a tour, with insight of the superior church, the garden, the story of this monastery

We love this, Naples is a real city, where people live and work and shop, this area is alive, it isn't to everyone's taste, it has not been sanitised for tourists, but it is full of everything, fish markets, cheap souvenirs, decaying palazzo's and ancient monuments, that go barely mentioned.

This street is always full of life, it is a great place to see real Napoliten people. And the cheapest touristic souvenir place at the center. By the way be careful about pickpocketing in this area.

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

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!
