An amazing place full of life & lots of beautiful churches. It is the start of a long street that takes you back in time- to see how was life 200 years ago albeit, without the smells. Must see.

When you are in Naples this is the stroll you must take. I think that taking a walk along this vibrant, colorful, populous street makes you understand better the soul of this gorgeous city. Literally translated “spaccanapoli” means that it cuts Naples in two. It’s...More

The narrow and crowded streets of this old part of Naples is worth squeezing through just for the feel of it all and the vibe but watch your pockets. Lots of shops and churches cheek by jowl, the churches often in states of disrepair.

Spaccanapoli is a main street in the historic centre of Napoli. It's just fun to walk along the crowded lane and observe the street life (the same can be said of much of Napoli): the vespas (motor bikes), the street vendors, the lovers, the tourists,...More

Do not take a tour! Just go, walk, enjoy! Big groups don’t work on this mostly pedestrian area. We felt safe & had a taste of real Southern Italy life. Lots of beautiful churches, cafes, gelato! Go for it!!!!

You can park everywhere you find but you need to pay per hour . In my opinion use the metro that they have Is easier.

We were there rather late, several evenings, and many shops were still open. Different shops close at different times, but restaurants, bars, dessert bakeries, etc. were open late. Hope this helps.
