Just a small street in the ancient part of Naples, this is a must not just for shopping but for window shopping and people watching. The shops mainly sell hand-painted terracotta figures with the emphasis on Nativity scenes. We bought the individual pieces that will go perfectly with our Christmas village. All sizes are available and can be bought individually... More

This road is one of the most characteristic in the city. In the middle of the historic centre it shows how neapolitans are attached to their tradition and folkrore. In here loads of shops can be found selling characters for the typical christmas crib, lucky charms (in the shape of red horns) and other typical products.

Nothing like home made shops that take pride in their craftsman shop. If you celebrate Christmas you must come here. Purchased a Neapolitan presepio and it will be great doe your holiday!

It is a short street with mainly nativity scenes shops. You can also see them being made. Just to look at them is really interesting - some of the figures are even moving, they are showing the everyday life.Especially for kids it is a really nice place. The minus is that they do not often accept the credit cards and... More

Strange narrow street with many typical nativity maquettes named presepi, but also small statues of personalities which you can buy at a great price.

If you want to see the real, beating heart of Naples you should visit this incredible street. It's famous worldwide because of its gorgeous "presepi" and it's even more beautiful on Christmas. You can't leave Naples without paying a visit to it!

You can't leave Naples if you have not walked the street of Centro Storico. This is one of the main but small street full of things to see: churches, stores and people.

A beautiful street nestled in the heart of the historical center. Picturesque hops with some of the most beautiful handicraft in the city. The shops have similar items but they all have something unique or the way they set their shops is different. You can walk slowly and enjoy the sounds of people, commerce and the odd artist playing music.... More

This is an area with several story buildings with laundry hanging down. This is very classic. There are numerous shops selling the very unique hand made decorations. And, there are a lot of cafes and places to get their local deserts.
