This is a splendid large square that invites you to wander, sit and perhaps visit the churches that dominate its sides. Lovely buildings.

A great area to sit and watch the world go by. We used this as our meeting point as the monument in the middle is very recognizable. From here, you can branch off in multiple directions.

Nice little square with pretty good atmosphere. Defo worth a quick sit down and coffee just to rest up a bit.

Was buzzing with activity, lots of restaurants, bars & souvenir shops nearby. This was in the afternoon, so should be more lively in the evening.

With it’s Church, Spire, Restaurants and proximity to the University district, this is understandably a busy and vibrant part of the City. The Spire is of particular interest as it is the only one of the Three Spires in Naples that can truly claim to...More
