    It’s a big Square
    Really big piazza located just of the Main Street in Naples. Square is huge probably largest square in Naples, royal palace and church also surround the square. Think it also the main meeting point for a lot of rally’s and protest. In my few days in Naples several protests in the square.

    Peaceful piazza outside palace
    The small square outside the palazzo reale. Just a short walk from the waterfront is this little square. In the morning it was very peaceful and quiet hardly anyone around so we could wonder at our leisure and take photos.

    Grand Historic Piazza!
    This large piazza shows many historical buildings from the 1800's when the Kingdom of Naples was one of the most important places in Europe. You don't really need to go inside the Royal Palace or the Basilica di San Francesco to experience the grandeur of the square. We walked down Via Toledo to arrive there, and also walked through the Spanish Quarter, the Galleria Umberto, and passed by the San Carlo Theatre and the Castle and the seaport when we visited the piazza. We went there on a Sunday morning and it was very clean without many crowds.

Naples' grandest piazza is the city's main gathering spot, playground and central focal point. The enormous open space is a sunny spot in the heart of Naples, known for its tight, narrow streets and population density. Unfortunately it was manically full of students protesting again the war whilst my family and I where there.

There had been an outdoor concert in the square at the beginning of my stay, but the infrastructure was removed to reveal the true scale and magnificence of this the Piazza. It was like stepping back into Ancient Rome.
The Piazza is opposite the Royal Palace so you can combine two attractions at the same time. It wasn't that busy and I went during lunch time.

The place is crowdy and of course for a reason. It’s very nice but at the time we were there half of the square was under reconstruction so that’s why it didn’t get 5 points. In overall it’s definately worth a visit, not only because it’s beautiful but also because it’s near other amazing sights

A very touristy thing to do. Plenty of other attractions nearby (walking distance).

Dropby a nearby famous and historic cafe, Grand Cafe Gambrinus, for snack and drinks. Celebrities do pop in sometimes.

Lots of people come here to sit and relax. We did this almost every single day of our trip. Was close to the center of Naples. We would get gelato or other food and come here to sit down. It's opposite the royal palace so you can watch that and take pictures. Be careful of sellers in the middle of the piazza, some aren't too friendly.

The square is huge, bookended by the Royal Palace at one side and the Church of San Francesco di Paola at the opposite side...........and that's it!
It is barren - no seats, no trees, no fountains, nothing. Cafes and seats are away from the square, so there's no way you can sit there to relax or people watch.

Stopped off at this square during our walk from Toledo down to the port. Beautiful church on one side and the old palace with the statues of the old rulers on the other.

School parties obviously making the most of all interest and entertainment available which was great to see.

The church is definitely worth a look. Reminded us of a smaller Vatican from outside and reminiscent of the Patheon in Rome inside.

Definately worth a look.
