Nativity obsession

This is a very popular street in Naples, where every other shop sells Nativity scenes stuff. Good to buy souvenirs!

Amazing contrasts
Aug 2020 • Solo
The street name beside an AC unit, the souvenir shop with the laundry drying above and next to a beautiful old gate with graffiti, the bell tower structure at the top of the street. Something for everyone.

The most characteristic street in Naples
Jul 2020 • Couples
I love passing through this long and very busy street. It’s so particular! You may see lots of handmade items for sale- from magnets and souvenirs to tambourines and, of course, for what it’s most famous- nativity scenes. If you want to feel the heart of Naples, you must come here!

Walking down via San Gregorio Armeno
Feb 2020
I think that Via S. Gregorio Armeno is one of the most characteristic streets all over the world. Walking down it you pass through a market where you can buy anything for the typical Naples cribs (presepi in Italian). Don't miss the convent of San Gregorio Armeno: its beautiful cloister with a large Baroque marble fountain and citrus groves, orchards and garden is a place where you can take a rest and find peace. I love this place!

Interesting to walk through
Mar 2020
In March there were not many people walking this street or crowds as far as tourists.Still the shops had their nativities and figurines displayed but without too much of the Christmas feel to it in this time of the year.. Interesting to walk through!

I'd heard about this street and went especially to see it. It did not disappoint, but I was very suprised at how narrow it is and how crowded. Most of the time we were like sardines. The shops are full of wonderful nativitities and all the separate ornaments that allow people to build their own. Nativities with moving parts are very popular and there was a huge variety ranging from about 25 euros well into the hundreds. The seperate ornaments start at about 4 euros for the really tiny ones. If you plan to build your own nativity, take plenty of cash as the variey of ornaments is massive and you won't be able to stop at just the main ones. The street is quite long so if you want to have a really good look in all or most of the shops, you need at least an hour or more, especially if it's really crowded.

A walk through shops and vendors
Dec 2019 • Family
Very busy street with vendors with various goods and food. Some of the street food. Being Christmas time, there was a sizable crowd but not unbearable. Worth walking through.

Kitsch but worth seeing
Jan 2020 • Family
Never been on such a crowd! At one point we couldn’t move in any direction so if you don’t like this, don’t go. It’s famous for it’s shops with nativity scenes and kids have a ball looking at all the ingenious mechanics. It’s a typical Neapolitan thing so go, in and out!
