You cannot miss this very very traditional place in the hearth of Napoli. In some days around 8 december it is so crowdy that you are not able to walk in the street. There are a lot of shops with the traditional napolitan hand crafted pastori and presepe (the nativity). You cannot mis it!! ****** Se siete a Napoli nel... More

This is great fun, magic,you name it. running between Spaccanapoli and Via Tribunali it's a treasure trove of Presepe - figures for Christmas cribs Neapolitan style. Everything from baby Jesus to pizza makers. Many are hand made, you can watch them,and the stables, being made in many of the little shops. A great souvenir, but watch out for the plasticy... More

Presepi everywhere as well as figurines, tiles, and mementos of Naples. However, make doubly sure prices are listed and that you have completed reconnaissance of the street before you purchase. Highly effective wrapping for your carry-on or hold luggage is included in the sale price. By the way, the street's namesake Church is well worth a visit and, of course,... More

In the heart of the historic centre, between some of Naples' many churches is this street of small shops, specialising in miniatures for the nativity scenes, which range from the hand-made to the mass produced. Now a street which caters more for the tourist, selling every type of souvenir, but you can still see and buy the work of master... More

The narrow street with shops of presepia is so interesting. You should find many beautiful art products especially angels. They are really so beautiful..

If you're into arts and traditional crafts, then this street is the place for you. We managed to get all our souvenirs and typical traditional crib from one of the best artisans and it surely was the best memento we managed to get home.

This was one of the highlights of our week in Naples, we both love Christmas cribs and had already seen some very fine examples in churches and museums. My husband was a bit cynical and said "it will all be made in China". However, we saw individual terracotta components fresh from their moulds waiting to be painted, and some of... More

Worth to pau a visit but be aware you may find not much more of hand made stuff a good 70% of the items on sale were looking a bit "made in China". So be careful.
