The street that feels like 25th December all year round. Via San Gregorio Armeno is laden with workshops either side selling nativity scenes and all things hand made. Some great sights to see, plenty of souvenirs to buy and photos to be taken.

Coming in by bus, this street was a bit challenging to find, but I was determined Christmas Alley as it is known to locals, was worth every wrong turn. Such a quirky street filled with absolutely everything Christmas, from nativity scenes to absolutely any decoration...More

We were staying on ‘Christmas Alley’ and walked down it a number of times. It’s full of interesting little shops and is worth a visit.

You have to walk on it to get to San Gregorio Armeno Cathedral, and it is an interesting way to get from Via San Biagio Dei Librai to Via dei Tribunali

The street is lined with small shops and they may be closed on Sundays and holidays. I would suggest emailing your hotel and inquiring there.
