I have always loved nativity scenes and handmade items. This neighborhood was a "must see" when I visited Naples and I was not disappointed. There are hundreds of shops located in this area, and every single shop has LOTS of items crammed into spaces. There are tons of items to look at and buy.
The main things you will find here are nativity scenes and figurines in many variations and sizes, from the inexpensive to the very expensive. You will also find unique handmade Italian gift items that are made in town. None of that imported stuff from China.
As a jewelry maker, I found several tiny statues of the Virgin Mary that I purchased that I have never seen anywhere else; I will use these in future jewelry creations.
One of the things I found interesting was watching a woman hand paint nativity statues - one by one - in her shop. This particular shop sold clay and ceramic doll parts for people who want to design and make their own dolls. Heads, torsos, arms and legs could be purchased for fairly reasonable prices, and there were lots to choose from.
If you like nativity sets, artsy items and handmade items, be sure to stop here on your trip to Naples. You won't be disappointed.
