Owner description: The tradition of representing the Holy Family as true art lives on in this narrow street, which is crowded on both sides with hundreds of artisan workshops with colorful displays of Nativity scenes.

“Only at Christmas time!”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

After reading many of the previous reviews I put a visit to Naples San gregorio Armeno on our "must do" list. Our guide tried to warn us that many shops would be closed since it wasn't near the Christmas season but we had no idea that meant almost all of them! Of the remaining open shops only one displayed original craftsmen work, at a price that was way out of my league! The rest looked like small "made in china" plastics.

“A cool oasis away from the noisy hubbub of the crowded streets.”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

The privately owned little chapel of Sanservero is a cornucopia of treasures. However,a lesser well known church of San Gregrio Armeno,provides an oasis of cool silence from the constant hubbub outside in the streets of the same name,where for generations Neapolitans have manufactured xmas mangers.
This church was founded as a convent for the wayward daughters of the nobility,and is dated with splendour,its elaborate decorated ceiling supported by 16 piers incorporating more than 100 antique columns .
Sheer delight and mercifully uncrowded.

“Top of the best attraction in Naples, so characteristic.”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

For those who have never been to Naples can not even imagine what you are missing out, only this attraction that this small district located in the heart of Naples is the thing for which it is worth coming here.
Among the small alleys and narrow streets are the famous shops where craftsmen build 365 days a year the famous nativity scene.
Here you will see dozens and dozens of stalls with statuettes and showbiz personalities, sports character all over the world and even politicians, all strictly hand and fate as only they can do.
Really all very quaint and at least once in life you have definitely come to see the famous San Gregorio Armeno.

“Nativity Heaven.”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

An amazing narrow street that connects two of Naples most amazing streets, Via dei Tribunali and Via San Biagio dei Librai. The street is lined with shops selling amazing nativity scenes. As well as all manner of kitsch ornaments, figurines and artworks.

“Christmas tradition”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

It should not be considered as an exibition rather than a valuable Christmas craftmanship market. The area is quite small, the alleys are narrow and can easily become overcrowded, but it's worth a visit without any doubt. Some pieces are really outstanding.
