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.

Nativities like you've never encountered before, towering creations including, columns, caves, water wheels. Small moving shops with moving figures putting pizza in ovens, winching bread basket out of the reach of a goat and other village life enactments. Make your own nativity scene, buying all the necessary characters and additional ones. Has to be seen to be believed!

While you walk down the street, actually a rather narrow one, you have the displays of figurines on both sides. Italians use the presepe, a Christmas tradition mainly in the south of the country, and the ability of the artisans who produce constantly oies also in the translation of real life into thes small pieces of art.

One of the wonders of Naples! Full on assessories for the nativity (or crib, if you prefer to call it so). Some handcrafted, others factory made... For all types of wallets! Amazing displays around Christmas time, however beware, from the end of November until Christmas the crowds are terrible (not to mention pickpockets too).

Walking around the street of San Gregorio Armeno it's like breathing the real culture of Naples: the cribs on sale all year around, little masterpieces, miniature sculptures of famous caracters, just a great place to stroll around in Naples

I live in Naples, and whenever friends or family come to visit me, I always take them for a stroll up this street. Here you can see an array of miniatures--tiny people, animals, objects, houses, etc.--used to make up presepi, the traditional Neapolitan nativity scenes. The street is lined with shops and workshops that display their products on shelves that... More

If you want to see the heart and soul of Naples, this would be a good place to start. From here, you can wander around for hours. So much to see and take in. But make sure you have a map, as it can be easy to get lost.

An old church situated on a homonym street,a narrow cobbled street, full of cheap handmade souvenirs sellers.The area is very picturesque but crowded and looking a little unsafe in the evening.

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. Often Naples is referred to as grubby, but the over... More
