“Interesting architecture and history”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We didn't have much time. This area shows much of the attraction Naples has to visitors. There are interesting, even monumental buildings, nearby but some of the pleasure is in the details. This is not hard to get to from a cruise ship. It can be walked but a reliable taxi can get you there quickly. We were at the end of a day trip so our guide just gave us a drive by. Worth seeing after Pompeii and perhaps before Sorrento.

“Great area to have a wander around the little streets...”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Great area to have a wander around the little streets and kill a couple of hours. Also would recommend this area if looking for accommodation. Feels a safe area if you are at all concerned about Napoli and it's sometimes tarnished reputation. Try and avoid the Stazione Centrale area as can be a bit dodgy.

Anyway, lots of little shops and stalls in the area, in particular San Gregorio Armeno. Via Tribulani is great for eating with some of the best pizza you'll taste. :-)

“Old Napoli”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

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.

“Perfect intro to Napoli”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

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.
