This area is certainly eye catching with its colourful bunting hanging through the streets and market stalls lined with bright football shirts. Heading up from the main shopping area are the narrow streets that are good to explore either for the shops to buy souvenirs...More

Enjoyed walking around this neighborhood at both day and night. Lots of little vendors, shops, restaurants and bars. This is a great place to experience authentic Napoli.

Narrow streets going up the hill, small balconies, drying clothes, architectural chaos - that's old Spanish quarter, part of Naples located west of via Toledo. Probably the most authentic relict of the past times if you exclude cars and motorcycles from those streets. Definitely worth...More

Narrow cobbled streets and small balconies, giving out the authentic Napolitanian vibe. Watch out on the motorbikes as they drive quite fast and wear trainers since the streets are quite slippery. I wouldn't say it's an unsafe neighborhood rather the crowdedness and the narrowness of...More

Despite the place's ancient bad reputation I didn't feel any safety problems here at all, even visiting in the evening. Anyway, I simply found this neighbourhood absolutely ugly and unappealing; everything is grey, dirty and messy. I don't see any reasons why anyone would want...More

I was looking for a specific address while in Naples in Sept. 2015 in order to locate someone from WW II. (No luck.) Our native born Neopolitan taxi driver drove us (two older females from USA) to the address and he said it was in...More

Wandering the streets of the Spanish Quarter gives you the feeling of true Naples, what it is all about. The smell of the fabric softner all around, the rushing scooters and cars, the hustle and bustle, the people discussing, the coffee shops and the restaurants...More
