Spaccanapoli is a must see when visiting Naples at Christmas time. People come from all over to see the artisanal nativity scenes made by the locals. It is one of the most colorful spots in Naples. The only downside is that the overcrowded, narrow streets make it a paradise for pickpockets.

We were wandering through the busy narrow streets of the area which are in themselves worth seeing just to witness how the locals live, shop and interact.Although hard to say which part of Napoli this is, you can walk any street of the historic centre just to see lots of interesting and historic buildings.

This street is very long and divide the old Naples into two parts. The street starts almost to the rail station with the Duchesca market and crosses the neighborhood of Forcella and many others. This street, always busy, is almost all pedestrian, so that can be enjoyed by walking. On this street there are many shops which sell typical sweets... More

Napoli's historic center is huge and full of places to visit! Suggest the santa chiara and gesú nuovo churches. Furthermore passing through san gregorio armeno is mandatory. It also the road of the pizzerias so definitely to be visited.

You can feel the vibe and see the layers and stages this ancient city has been created in. Here you have really used the old to build the new and not make everything from scratch. Go for for a walk here and drop in to churches, trattorias, cafes and crazy shops.

with all the charm this walk will give you ... just know most of the good shopping is not here ... this is good to see and feel some the energy of Naples and the interaction of the locals ... especially in the fish shops .... and traditional artisan shops. I think it is a must do for Naples ...... More
