“An adventure in survival and discovery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

This was the obvious street to hit first since we staying in the Hotel Piazza Bellini and it was a street we visited a few times in our short stay in Naples. It has some great restaurants, some nice, small speciality shops (butchers, fishmongers, etc) and lots small cafes and takeaway shops. It is also a main artery through the old town and the side streets branching off it lead to many nice building and places to see and areas to 'discover'. You could spend a couple of days just wandering about this whole area finding new places to eat, drink, relax, shop and take photos of - all the while coming back to this street to get your bearings (and back to the hotel in our case).

There's plenty to see if you like people-watching, as the whole area is very shady and dodgy and there's what appears to be 'underworld activity' on every corner and outside every shop and it's like a scene from an old 70s movie most of the time. In fact, it's better than half the crap we get on TV here so relax and enjoy.

It's also quite narrow and motorbikes/scooters go flying along it with reckless abandon, but then again so do the cars at times, so be careful out there and walk like the locals.

“Thanks to our taxi driver, we discovered this wonderful street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Despite previous visits to Naples, this is a street we never found, but our very helpful taxi driver showed us, principally as he recommended visiting ‘underground Naples’ which you access from this street. One warning, if you are in the least claustrophobic, don’t go in! The first stairs are fine, but very soon you are faced with a VERY narrow long stone corridor which you have to go through. At this point we turned back, it really was very claustrophobic. We were treated with great politeness and understanding, and half of our entry fee (which was only Euros 10 each, including a guide) was refunded. This is a visit that is obviously fascinating, but be aware of those corridors. Sort of wish we had got up the courage to g on, but ‘base feelings’ got the better of us. Console yourself with a Pizza a couple of doors down, people queue just to buy one, they must be good.

“For pizza fans”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2011

Another narrow street in the old part of Napoli.A lot of pizzerias(Sorbillo,Di Matteo,Pizzaiolo del Presidente,etc).
Interesting to see:Napoli Sotterranea(Napoli Undergrounds) and a part of an ancient roman amphitheater in Piazza San Gaetano.The visit costs about 10 euros and it takes about 90 minutes.Very interesting,but a little tiring as long as there are a lot of stairs.But it worths a visit.

“The heart of the pizza making...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2010

Via tribunali is the central road of the historic canter parallel to the Spaccanapoli road, full of vibrant life sounds and smells from it's famous pizzerias. Wherever you go the pizza is marvelous and cheap (from 2,50 to 5,50 euro). Apart from it there are also some great church that worth a visit: S. Lorenzo Maggiore (Gothic), S. Paolo Magiiore (built over an ancient Greek temple), S. Maria del Purgatorio d' arco, Gerolamini and Pio Monte della Misericordia (with a famous painting by Caravaggio). One of the crossing roads is the via S. Gregorio Armeno with the navity scenes craftworks. This is what I liked most!
