It’s nice to see a little local culture and idiosyncrasy. But I expected a little more than a short street with a few shops. This place gets plenty of online attention. They should capitalize on that and actually make it more interesting.

A Road of artisans and souvenir stores where you would be lost in the figurine, papier maché and amazing souvenirs. A must when in Naples and refrain from buying any souvenirs till you get to this street.

We had such a great time exploring this street! There was so much to see. We had fun looking at the different figurines and Nativity scenes. It can get pretty crowded on weekends, so try to go on a weekday.

The street is lined with small shops and they may be closed on Sundays and holidays. I would suggest emailing your hotel and inquiring there.
