I love this street - I know it may seem a little tacky (slightly touristy) but unless you go around Christmas when it is too crowded for words, it is really part of the heart of Naples and most characteristic. It has a lovely feel to it. Shopping is good and inexpensive.

The entire street is devoted to shops that sell everything you can think of to create the Christmas Nativity scene of your dreams. Very unusual and fun to stroll down.

You cannot say you visited Naples if you didn't go there! It's simply Naple. Do not miss also the church and chiostro!

This street is magic in December. All the years long the shop sell , a make, artificial flower, in DEcember the flower disappear and you will find "pastori", the figurines the Neapolitans use for the crib. A very lovely place!

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
