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.

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

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
