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

Strolling along small streets is a cheap way to see what living in Naples is like. 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 willalso see the beautiful Vesuvio from different angles between the high buildings. Do it at daytime, narrow streets... 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

Some people will tell you to avoid this neigbourhood but you haven't seen Naples if you haven't seen the Quartiere Spagnoli (Spanish Neighbourbood). It's a poor area, so maybe it's best to avoid it at night and it's dirty but so is the rest of Naples these days. The streets are narrow and the drying linen keeps the sun from... More

If you want to see Naples as you picture in your mind from all the movies about Naples then this is the area to visit. The streets are narrow, the motorini are noisy, the vendors are loud but this is where you see the real Naples. This is where you can buy some fruit from a vendor who only speaks... More
