Charming "old" Naples - but be careful

This is a charming section of the city, but very narrow streets and crowds can make it a little risky. If you watch out for traffic and pickpockets, you will enjoy the visit.

We had a blast walking along this street. Our hotel was right on it, Santa Chiara Boutique hotel and we absolutely loved our stay. The place was crazy-crowded and very lively. People were playing music and dancing in the streets. Loved all of the Presepi displays from the vendors. Must see in Naples!

Just walk around looking the old artisan shops and all the ancient churches you find on the way. Try a sfogliatella (warm if possible) and a coffee and enjoy this beautiful city.

Not sure where precisely Spaccanapoli starts and ends, but there are some lovely streets in this area to wander around and see a nativity scene made out of pizza or the most amazing seafood market stalls on a Friday afternoon!

Very busy area, plenty of coffee shops, bars and home made hand craft shop. Pleasant to walk around, a must if you visit Naples.

It is really nice to wander around the historic centre. It is never quiet. Be it morning, noon or evening. Full of tourists and locals, shopping, stopping for coffee or a quick bite to eat. Really crowded at times, you can hardly step forward, but good vibe. Full of souvernir shops and shops offering local products.

Food. People. Traffic. Noise. Beauty. Old. New. Many tags for an area that you either run away from or love for the rest of your life

Cannot be in Napoli without spending at least a couple of hours walking around the streets of spaccanapoli. The real heart of the city with its small shops, boutiques, churches, etc. A must!
