This apartment is truly in the center of things in Napoli with the Duomo on one side of the building and the busy shopping street Via Tribunali on the other side. There are half a dozen or so historic churches and several museums with great artistic merit within a couple of blocks of the apartment. There is a street, Via St. Gregorio Armenio, two blocks away consisting almost entirely of shops selling the small figurines (such as Pulcinella and nativity scenes) for which Naples is renowned. The St. Gregorio Armenio chuch and convent are located here and are well worth seeing.. Restaurants, pizzarias, food stores and other retailing is just steps away from the apartment. The Cavour subway stop is about three blocks away, providing flexibility for local travel. Indeed, everything of interest in downtown Naples is within walking distance of the apartment - no more than half a mile away.
The neighborhood is certainly busy with lots of people and traffic coming and going through the day and even some at night. But this is not disturbing and certainly does give a flavor of daily life in Napoli. It is so charming just to walk on the side streets and experience the different shops, food outlets (lots of pizza available!) and the people.
The apartment is well-equiped and provides good kitchen and dining facilities. The space in the apartment is substantial; one does not feel cramped. The air-conditioning works well. The small balcony overlooking the Via Duomo is a real plus as one can sit by it and observe the busy passing scene below. One should be aware that one of the bedrooms consists of a loft reached by a steep set of stairs. This should not be a problem but one should carefully navigate the steps as is prudent for all lofts.
Paola and Antonio, the persons administering the apartment, were most friendly and always responsive when any request for assistance or information was made.
