I loved this neighbourhood more than the newer more spacious areas, this is real Napoli, narrow streets where everyone & everything seems to be done outside. It's noisy & scruffy but look closely & you are surrounded by history, a medieval Palazzo or a church built in the remiss of a employees. Even the street patten goes back to the original Greek settlement. Here you can get your souvenirs inc. nativity figures & Punchinello. Also remarkable Pizzas at very reasonable prices & of course the coffee & Dolces.

I wondered the streets of Storico Centro one my first afternoon in Napoli.I tried to follow my travel guide to view the numerous palazzi and chiesa concentrated in the quarter - I was distracted many times by wonderful stores (fruits and veg espacially) and buildings around me. It is a bit crazy with all the scooters and small cars zooming past you when you have your nose up trying to admire the facade od such and such palace - but I totally loved it! What an intorduction to Napoli. Oh, nearly forgot the main things - everybody was so friendly!

It's lovely and with many italian views and things to do! There's something going on at any time of the year but it'd be a lot be nicer if it was cleaner.

This Centro Storico feels like the 'real deal'. We did not hear any English spoken during our 4 days in Naples. Tourists avoid the city because it has a reputation for crime & crumbling infrastructure. It is indeed a misunderstood city. We had a wonderful visit. Great food. Spectacular churches and museums. Do not miss the Vomero museum.Naples: Crumbling & dirty? yes... but worth the effort if you are a seasoned traveler. Do yourself a favor, experience Naples.

The centro storico is a must see in Naples. Not so well reserved as the historic buildings in Rome, Umbria or Toscany, but in fact that's Naples. Many nice churches, shops and busy street life.
