The peoples are the best and funniest in all peninsula of italy. A city and port on the west coast of Italy, capital of Campania region; population 963,661 (2008). It was formerly the capital of the kingdom of Naples and Sicily (1816–60). Love it!!! Italian name Napoli

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!

The narrow long street cuts through the ancient heart of Centro Storico. You're walking in the feet of the Romans, & it's easy at times to imagine it, till you have to avoid a motorini with a whole family on board. Lots of great little shops (many tourist oriented now) cafes & restaurants. Full of life & fun. Via Gregorio... More

One cannot leave Naples without walking down Spaccanapoli, the street which cuts the city in two. Quite likely one cannot even avoid walking along it, it draws one like a magnet. Spaccanapoli is pure life, pure joy of living, full of noise and colours and music.

This nice place was just arround the corner of our hotel Europeo. It`s in the middle of this long street (3 km). A street with small shops and many small cafe`s and restorarants. In this street you can find also a few important churches.

A brilliant place to spend an hour or two window and real shopping, popping into the many beautiful churches and other places of interest, stopping for a quick bite or an al fresco meal or eating on the go from one of the street vendors. It's mad, magnificent and not for the faint hearted. Didn't see any signs of criminality... More

We were walking around Naples and came across this street. Its very quaint with lots of 'same' shops and little street cafes. A nice Naples experience.

We spent a month of summer in Italy, Naples being one of our favourites. Spaccanapoli street was edgy, talented and vibrant. Amazing music, fabulous street food with a hint of the godfather. What more does one need to awaken the senses?

This is a scruffy street running right across the old part of the city and it seems to consist mainly of market stall type shops selling absolute junk.
