This is an area of many market stalls, fish, meat, tripe ( but not like home), fruit, clothes, lots that were not Italian, clothes from Nepal etc but not what you want in Italy. I did not feel at all threatened and think it's a great place to visit. I still carried my bag in front!!

Went to see the famous Maradona mural and explore the small streets. We ran into a bit of trouble with some young Neapolitans who obviously didn't like tourists but nothing serious. Warning: If you are a Juventus fan, don't go.

Steep picturesque neighborhood full of restaurants. Unlike other neighborhoods in Naples, this seemed pretty calm.

We walked through this quarter accidentally when we first arrived in Naples. Quiet rough around the edges streets..... our in laws didn't feel particularly safe but that's more because no one was around and it seemed a little rough. But quite honestly nothing happened, we saw lots of locals... people ignored us ... not much to see so we headed... More

The Quartieri are among the most exciting places to visit in Naples. Spanish inheritance and southern Italian lifestyle combines here, with narrow streets and excellent small restaurants. Via Toledo is a good way to explore the Quartieri beggining at Dante Square and finishing at the Opera. Right there is located my favorite place, Cafe Il Proffesore, a nice place to... More

Was an interesting area to walk in, seeing the stalls selling their nativity scenes, and other wares. We actually saw someone using a bucket to lift something up from street level to their balcony, which was interesting. However, wander away from the beaten track, which is very easy to do, and it quickly becomes very scary. Be aware of your... More

No visit to Naples is complete without checking out the Spanish Quarter. Prior to entering the area, I had heard a mix of things from people saying the place could have crime. Honestly, when I first entered, it did look intimidating because of its reputation, and as I was walking around, there were occasional times it seemed a bit seedy.... More

This is the quarter built to house Spanish military during the 16th century and looks it. Very narrow streets, old crumbling buildings patched many times, hanging laundry, mainly residential with little trattorias and restaurants and some shops close to the Via Toledo. After work everyone hangs out on the streets and there are many youths on scooters, speeding dangerously or... More

It has color, flavor, noise, smells, clutter, and maybe a little danger. Definitely for day ventures only. For some it will be a learning experience, for others distasteful. It's all of it. One thing it is genuine
