Napoli has to be walked for several days to understand. Walking this street is a part of that. Imagine this city hundreds of years ago. Organised chaos that continues today. I hope it never changes.

I would suggest seeing this at least once. It was fun! So many little shops, many scooters, lots of people. We didn't buy anything but food, but it was really fun to see what everyone was selling. From the train station, we walked there. Then, we took a right onto Via San G. Armeno, where all the Christmas items were... More

This area has some very interesting and stylish shops and restaurants that you must take time to look at. We came across it on our walk back to Chiaia.

I'm afraid I didn't get the point of Spaccanapoli at all ... to me it simply looked shabby, grey, dark and unattractive. I struggle to consider it as an attraction or a must-visit ...

Spaccanapoli is not a tourist attraction. Spaccanapoli, this narrow alley where the Napolitans, tourists and motorbikes co-exist is the Napoli. A road with ancient settlements, one of the three "decans" (the "decumani" was three streets in the city) - the closest to the sea - was built by the ancient Greeks. Discover the historic center of Naples - one of... More

This is a must seen street in Naples. We took a taxi from our hotel to Piazza Gesu Nuovo. From there we went through Via Benedetto Croce, Via S. Biagio dei Librai, and Via Vicaria Vecchia. The street is a paradise for local food lovers. We will never forget the delicious sfogliatelle that we ate there.

This is a good Long walk for you and your family to take. You will definitely see the marvels of the area and its surrounding landmarks. Take a bite or two from the shops selling their local food while walking. My Mother loved the experience. Tips: remember to bring an umbrella or a rain coat.

we stayed 6 days in the hotel in Napoli but only 2 days in the city - the first and last day. It is a very crowded and noisy city and there are many attractions we could visit by train or ferry in the surroundings during the day - pompei,vesuvio, capri, sorrento and the towns in the amalfi coast
