The tradition of representing the Holy Family as true art lives on in this narrow street, which is crowded on both sides with hundreds of artisan workshops with colorful displays of Nativity scenes.

When you want to do for holiday decor in Italy, this is where you go. Little booths and tents are set up displaying one of a kind pieces of art. The city is know for the nativity scenes called presepe. In Naples, a family buys a scene void of characters and builds on it over the years. The truly fancy... More

this is a very characteristic part of Naples where you get to know the real people and way of living and eating. This road has the most famous crib artisans and is also famous for the figures reproducing showbiz people. In Christmas time it gets really stucked, you better go there early morning to avoid being trapped in the middle... More

It might be nice to stroll around thenarrow streets of Naples but this place is so crowded that you cannot even enjoy it! cribs are very nice and unique but it was so crowded that we couldn't even stop and take a look properly!

First I have seen the picture of this place on a magnet and ask the hotel staff about it then found the place. So many things to look for and I loved it.

This is one of most popular area of Naples.. However the main attraction is the market where typical religious miniatures are sold.. It is a perfect area also for eating so I highly recommend to have a walk in the area and then maybe enjoy some street food around..

Via San Gregorio Armeno is famous for its Christmas street market, that takes place every year in the Christmas period, but also in other moments of the year, where you could admire and buy typical objects, ceramical figures, traditional statues of the nativity scene, realized by Neapolitan artisans and appreciated in all the world. Unfortunately, you have to be, sometimes,... More

This little street is known as Christmas alley. All year, you can buy nativity scenes and not like any you have ever seen. Some are traditional but most are not. A nativity built to look like the ruins of Pompeii? Then you can select from thousands of people to display in your scene, from Mary and Joseph to the Pope... More

Worthy of a visit during the festive season. Via San Gregorio Armeno, a narrow cobbled street, free from traffic, is lined on both sides with small shops that spill their wares out onto the street. A vast arrangement of cribs and mangers, all hand made, by generations of traditional artizans. There are also large choices of hand made tambourines depicting... More
