About
The tradition of representing the Holy Family as true art lives on in this narrow street, which is crowded on both sides with hundreds of artisan workshops with colorful displays of Nativity scenes.

I'd heard about this street and went especially to see it. It did not disappoint, but I was very suprised at how narrow it is and how crowded. Most of the time we were like sardines. The shops are full of wonderful nativitities and all the separate ornaments that allow people to build their own. Nativities with moving parts are very popular and there was a huge variety ranging from about 25 euros well into the hundreds. The seperate ornaments start at about 4 euros for the really tiny ones. If you plan to build your own nativity, take plenty of cash as the variey of ornaments is massive and you won't be able to stop at just the main ones. The street is quite long so if you want to have a really good look in all or most of the shops, you need at least an hour or more, especially if it's really crowded.

Fabulous and famous street in Naples. It's quite a walk from the cruise port but well worth visiting. Gorgeous atmospheric streets. There are many traders here selling lots of statues and Christmas decorations.

Very characteristic street in the historical part of Naples. You can walk it down and admire the artisans’ work - from the nativity figurines and scenes to tambourines. It’s a very alive street. You can buy nice handmade souvenirs here. It’s also full of history and particular vibe.

Been on my bucket list for ages. Decided to go in Oct as it’s quieter. It was truly a great experience. One must go with the idea of looking at the artisanal work done by the store owners. There is plenty of the same thing but it’s the work that goes into making these pieces that makes the visit worthwhile. The purpose of going is to buy LOCAL MADE IN ITALT and not cheap imports. I will definitely go again to expand my collection. I was intrigued. A must for any lover of “Christmas Magic”. Would I go in the middle of summer, November or December? No the road is too small and it would be extremely crowded. October was magnificent

This street is a must visit when in the city. The atmosphere is beautiful and we would have loved to see this street during the Christmas season.

The shops are very similar, shrouded in good luck symbols such as the corniciello and Pulcinella. In addition to this there are many Christmas decorations and sculptures.

If you are looking for any kind of souvenir to symbolize your trip to Napoli you will find it here.

We took some time to find this place towards the end of our sightseeing day, which made it quite a long day. Worth the diversion though, it was great to see all the shops and the different presepi models for nativity scenes ( much more than a nativity scene really more of a tableau with the whole town around the stable and manger that we're more familiar with.

People here really go for it with their decorations. Many of the churches have these permanently on display but local people have these as part of Christmas decorations.  The scale is often huge several metres high, although many are made for travelling, quite small under glass domes.

There are two or three streets around this area that specialise in presepi and also have many little bars and restaurants. Makes for an interesting evening before your apperitivo.

In March there were not many people walking this street or crowds as far as tourists.Still the shops had their nativities and figurines displayed but without too much of the Christmas feel to it in this time of the year.. Interesting to walk through!

I love passing through this long and very busy street. It’s so particular! You may see lots of handmade items for sale- from magnets and souvenirs to tambourines and, of course, for what it’s most famous- nativity scenes. If you want to feel the heart of Naples, you must come here!

This church contains the relics of the Saint who brought Christianity to Armenia, which was the first stage to officially make Christianity its religion. But if you ask many people in Napoli, they can't tell you why the church is called Gregoro Armeno. Most Sundays its only open until 12 but the last weekend of December before Christmas they're open from 2-4. Is also spectacularly beautiful. The frescoes on the curdling are gorgeous as is the central garden full of orange and lemon trees even in winter. You can get limoncello made by the nuns there, which goes to support the work of the church in housing orphans and feeding the hungry. Highly recommended
