“Atmospheric”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Love the narrow streets and the atmosphere - a taste of the real Naples. Just watch out for the beggars - you can't go far without having some sort or receptacle (tea strainer, plastic cup etc etc_ shoved in your face.

“very atmospheric”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Wow - just like I imagined from old movies. Naples is scruffy, hot, noisy, and pretty rough and ready but has an amazing feel about it. Loved wandering through the back streets.

“Something and nothing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Although it's a quaint road, it was nothing particularly exciting, but that may have been down to the fact that a massive proportion of Naples was closed for August due to holidays!

This area of Naples was bustling with activity and is definitely worth a visit if you want to get a real taste of the city and its people.
