We loved shopping along this busy, crowded street. We actually purchased our own presepi to take home. We purchased a smaller one than I would have liked because of the long journey home, but the art work is marvelous and i love the fact that this skill has been passed down for centuries. Very much a treasure!

The tradition of making Crib at his best. An unique place in the heart of Naples. Difficult to walk in the weekends and during holidays.

During Christmas time Naples is crowded, but you have to visit Via San Gregorio Armeno. Artisans produce and sell here nativity scenes and all the pieces required. Personally I suggest to visit it in the morning, when there is less people and you have time to select, choose, look or just take picture. With small children and stollers, early morning... More

A narrow street full of shops and small workshops selling handmade nativity scenes and items for the festive season. Some workshops allow you in to see how the items are made.

The tradition of Christmas nativity scenes admirably handcrafted is concentrated at its best in this short and narrow street joining "Spaccanapoli" with the church of San Gregorio Armeno located at the end of the short rise encompassing the homonymous street. Although very crowded due to the day we choose for going there, it is a rewarding visit

The free tour that you get when you stay at hostel of the sun brought us over there. It was nice to see but if you aren't looking to go for a specific reason, you won't miss anything.

The scenario is great, and you can find millions of cribs... just don't go during Christmas time, as it is literally impossible to walk... too much people!! November is much better!!!

My husband and I went in October to Sorrento and took the train to Naples. Christmas Alley was beautiful. With all the Nativities and statues. Although I wouldn't want Donald Trump in my Nativity scene. There was so much to see and the Christmas decorations were fantastic. Well worth a visit.
