Used to live here for one year. It is an amazing neighborhood. In fact people are nice and helpful, inside quartiere spagnoli you can find a lot of cheap and tasty restaurants or cafes ( like Nenello). Don't be afraid to visit it and sightsee, Napolitani won't bite;). Avoid during evenings though...

It is not a place for sensitive tourists, but if you really want to feel Naples it is a MUST SEE district. Narrow streets, lots of locals, small shops and crazy scooter drivers. And I did not get it dangerous at night as many people claims.

Be careful that you don't get hit by a scooter - if you survive, you can enjoy the "real" Naples with a reasonably priced lunch or dinner. Within a few streets of the Via Toledo are a number of fine trattatoria. I loved several of them (see other reviews). The rest looks like the lower east side of New York... More

I must admit to being a bit apprehensive at first after reading a lot online about this place. But I have to say this was probable one of the ONLY places in Naples where I DIDN'T feel like I was about to be mugged! Yes, it's a bit grimy and the alleyways feel a bit dodgy but we ended up... More

Quartiere Spagnoli is most colorful and full of life. I recommend walking down from upper streets towards busy shopping streets below the quartiere. That way you will also see the beautiful Vesuvio from different angles between the high buildings. We did it at daytime walking down from Monte Santo. A lot of people sitting outside of their houses and ready... More

An old neighbourhoud with narrow paved hilly streets.Laundry on ropes laid between old buildings not in their best shape. Despite their bad reputation we haven't any problems to walk there,indeed,on daytime.

The Spanish Quarter of Naples, a historic city district and without doubt are still synonymous with violence, but I do not think so as it was described. Sure you hear stories of people robbed or violence, but I think this happens in every major city of the world. As in any particular place so it is always better to go... More

If you head off the path of trendy Via Toledo you will step into the heady, boisterous, street theater of the Spanish Quarter. Narrow streets teeming with locals going about their everyday lives. I saw a pet dog being lowered down in a basket from a third story apartment. And every where peoples washing hangs down from balconies almost like... More

Very lively and authentic neighbourhood for a stroll during the day (I would avoid the backstreets in the evening). Real people live and work here and it's a busy and bustling area to explore. Watch baskets being dropped down to collect shopping and other items. It was Interesting to discover that the washing hanging in the streets isn't hurriedly taken... More
