    If in Naples this alley is a must - we thoroughly enjoyed it - a long street purely Christmas - lovely to walk along and watch along the street things being made or hand painted - we bought a beautiful nativity dome in a shop where we watched the hand painting - amazing.

    This is the street that divides Naples north and south. It's a straight street that changes names multiple times and you will pass many churches, restaurants, shops, and lots of crowds. Wear a money belt and leave your valuables at home so that you don't have to worry about pickpockets.

    We visited the Gesù Nuovo (the 'New Jesus') church during our walkling tour of Naples.

    It was a 15th-century palace built in 1470.

    This church was taken over by the Jesuits at the end of the 16th century, and it was completely rebuilt.

    Bombing in World War II caused extensive damage, as one of the bombs went through the ceiling without detonating. The bomb is still in the church today.

    The facade features small pyramids, a style mainly used in the Venetian Renaissance.

    It a church worth visiting and spending some time inside viewing the amazing baroque interior.

    Easy to overlook but don't. Beautiful art work. I was the only one there. There is an audio guide but you need to download their app. I didn't have wi-fi so one guide walked around with me using her own phone!! The Varsari sacristy is amazing.

    It makes for a lovely destination as part of a self guided walking tour through the city, that is easy to piece together on Google maps.

    Fascinating and free!! Awesome and interesting experience! It IS hard to find! See photos for directions! Enter into the university, up the stairs to the right, down a long hall (students studying!) and enter!

    The cathedral's grand architecture and intricate frescoes left me in awe, while the peaceful ambiance provided a moment of tranquility in bustling Naples. It's a must-see for its deep cultural and spiritual significance.

    No walking tour of Naples could miss the Piazza de Plebiscio it is a large space with the palace at one end and the church at the other

    From the church walk towards the palace and go slightly right for a good photo stop over Naples with Vesuvius in the background

    A gritty, noisy, tourist packed area with great shopping and restaurants. Very different vibe from Rome. Has its own style and is proud of it. Pizza is amazing as well as buffallo mozerella, tiramesu, and all the other goodies Italy is known for.

    This church was built between 1283 and 1324.

    It is location is in a square of the same name bordered by the vibrant Spaccanapoli. Its also home to one of the three spires of Naples: monumental columns built to celebrate the end of the plague.

    It has as Gothic façade the interior is decorated with intricate gold details, has tall columns and a dramatic altar, and has many paintings and sculptures.

    Its a beautiful historic church and worth visiting in Naples.

    Narrow streets on the side of the hill. Mix of homes, shops & cafes. Mopeds zip along and are forever sounding their horns to warn of their approach. Lots of graffiti but streets were clean.
    The area will not be to everyone's tastes but is well lit and very pretty at night.

    Chiesa San Giovanni a Carbonara in Via Carbonara è un po' dimenticata considerato lo stato ma se siete a Napoli visitatela.

    Sa Giovanni a Carbonara Church it is not famous as others Church it Look that people they have forgotten to take care of it but if you are in Napoli take time to visit it.

    This thoroughfare cuts through Naples’ old historic centre on a east-west direction, and for about 850 metres, you will be feasted with the vibrancy, color, cacophony and exhibits of Naples’ old world charms and modern quirkiness. Jostling for a position along this avenue amidst the shops and restaurants include the historic Naples Cathedral and San Lorenzo Maggiore Basilica. Quirkiness comes in the form of a Pulcinella Statue, live bands singing from a balcony, and Napoli FC’s colors bedecking the buildings in celebration of the club’s Serie A championship victory last season. It’s a shame that this cobblestone street is not fully pedestrianised, so watch out for the occasional cars and frequent vespas rumbling by.
