Nice area of Naples with lots of small shops all over and restaurants around. It is a nice enjoyable walk. Just didn’t like that actually there were moments that cars would cross the road cause looks the street is for pedestrians.

Literally meaning “Naples splitter” since it seems to divide the city in two parts, it certainly deserves its UNESCO World Heritage status. This amazing district right in the Centro Storico brings the past to life with numerous picturesque narrow streets and monuments. A trip to...More

The bustling, narrow street is an essential part of any trip to Naples. It is jammed full of clothes shops, jewellers, shops selling tourist tat and Neopolitan nativity scenes, but it was the fantastic street food places that tempted me. Sfogliatella, baba, gelato if you...More

The narrow street (alley) that divides, as they say the local people, Naples in 2. Almost 1500 metres long and 6 meters wide one of the most touristic streets of the city full of cafes, small restaurants, souvenir shops, bars. You can enjoy walking there...More

When you've seen a 100 cities they all start to look the same. Unfortunately I'd have to say the same about Spaccanapoli. Despite the impressive colours and height grandeur of the buildings, there's nothing here that you wouldn't find in any other city around the...More

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.

We stayed in an apartment right next to the streets called Spaccanapoli, i.e.the streets which split Naples in two. It is a living area 24/7, not pretty but vibrant. We felt safe but as in every large city you have to take... More
