The narrow and crowded streets of this old part of Naples is worth squeezing through just for the feel of it all and the vibe but watch your pockets. Lots of shops and churches cheek by jowl, the churches often in states of disrepair.

Spaccanapoli is a main street in the historic centre of Napoli. It's just fun to walk along the crowded lane and observe the street life (the same can be said of much of Napoli): the vespas (motor bikes), the street vendors, the lovers, the tourists,...More

Do not take a tour! Just go, walk, enjoy! Big groups don’t work on this mostly pedestrian area. We felt safe & had a taste of real Southern Italy life. Lots of beautiful churches, cafes, gelato! Go for it!!!!

I love this place, traditional, amazing corners and palaces, lovely people. U find the best (and sometimes the worse) of this wonderful and chaotic city. Walk and ask and you will be surprised by this place. Simplemente hermoso.

Really exciting. Small shops and small restaurants with too many people and so lovely ambiance. Multi cultural revolution I must say ..

This was my second visit to this incredible pizzeria! Both visits I have not booked a table but may be recommended when in large groups. Very reasonably priced, it was about €15 for high end pizza, beer, water and cover charge.

If you go for a walk you will experience the different styles, cultures and values of this astonishing city. Absolutely recommended. Look also for side streets where you have plenty of artisans which offer the famous ‚presepi‘.

We were there rather late, several evenings, and many shops were still open. Different shops close at different times, but restaurants, bars, dessert bakeries, etc. were open late. Hope this helps.
