Was not sure what to expect. Bit disappointed. Just loads of shops selling figurines. Bit tacky. Maybe because it's the end of season

One street full on nativity decorations. It was a really weird street, as the decorations are very different to English stuff, but this made it really interesting! Don't need more than an hour here. No cost, unless you want to buy something. Would be a nightmare to park here, park elsewhere and walk.

Of all the Christmas markets in Italy, the one that you should not miss is the one on the Via San Gregorio Armeno in Naples with its endless shops dedicated to the Christmas Nativity tradition. These shops can be visited year round and tourists can enjoy a magical Christmas atmosphere when they please. Most of the artisan workshops are always... More

This is a small street full of shops selling more or less the same things and that is little figures for nativity scenes, mostly religious of course but some a little more irreverent ;-) Many also have mechanical moving parts. However, my one gripe is what the heck do Venetian masks have to do with Napoli?!

If you're a fan of artisans and traditional crafts, then this is a must go....you'll find yourself amazed with the various artisans and their work of arts, sometimes even doing it there and then. We managed to get all our souvenirs and typical presepio from there...one of the best memento we managed to get home. They may be expensive, but... More

In quite narrow street called the Via San Gregorio Armeno, in so called Naples's historic city, have installed the nativity scene makers. Here, along this rather short alley we've seen a lot of shops with the nativity figurines, the Christmas cribs and other various handicrafts. Not only Jesus and Madonna figurines are present in this street but also can be... More

Really typical alley (Christmas Alley) filled with shop with souvenirs and if you are into it with all kinds of different additions for you Nativity. Some of them are really artistic and well made and worth the trip and crowds there. If the Nativity is not your thing you can easily bypass it as Naples as s lot of little... More
