Tips

Spaccanapoli is the informal designation given to the long, straight street running down the middle of Naples's centro storico (historic center). The name has also come to stand for the neighborhood surrounding the street, an area that's chaotic, vibrant, edgy, colorful, noisy, mysterious, and very beautiful. In other words, it's the essence of Naples. A walk along Spaccanapoli takes you past peeling palaces, artisans' workshops, many churches and street shrines, stores of all sorts, bars, and people young and old.

Morning is the best time to make this walk-many of the churches are closed in the afternoon. At a leisurely pace, with numerous stops along the way, the walk will take a full morning.

Naples has something for everyone, history, food and the wonderful people make this walk a must do. It’s any easy walk and you need to go with the flow given how busy the streets can be in the afternoon. Always take care crossing the roads, particularly the bikes are a law until themselves.
