When I visited this street, I expected to find the typical Neapolitan nativity scene. It was a total disappointment. I didn't believe one second that the figurines/statues sold here where made by the Neapolitan artisans, especially when the vendors seemed almost all originary from Pakistan/India. It felt more like a turist trap. There were some funny statuettes, but it is... More

Irresistible Christmas decorations in every shop. It was a hot day in August when we visited but I still had to buy several tree decorations for Christmas. i loved the model houses and nativity scenes but our baggage allowance could not accommodate them. Well worth a trip to see.

An amazing street full of vendors with amazing craftmanship skills. The wife and kids enjoyed it so much we had to make a few visits there over our 3 week stay.

One of the most famous and beloved attractions both for tourists and natives. If you plan to go there for Christmas, avoid doing that after December the 8th, because it gets so packet that you can't almost walk along this narrow alley. Es una de las mas amadas atracciones de los turistas y napolitanos. Pero si planean ir por las... More

I do rather enjoy miniatures and model villages and such. A nice little stroll down this street is worthwhile to see the handicrafts. Make sure you pop in the shops and check out all different figurines. If you've got some free time take a wander this way.

I always make a point of getting here during visits to Naples. It is wonderful to see this kind of art still being produced by local craftspeople.

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!

Can get a little crowded and touristy, but still worth a visit to get a sense of historic Napoli and the culture of the city.
