I can't believe I'm only the second to review this cozy little street market. Here you'll see no sellers of selfie sticks and fake Gucci bags - this is where locals and restaurants go to buy fish and vegetables. Highly recommended for experiencing Neapolitan daily...More

Pignasecca has a very local feel with a mixture of small shops and stalls that attract lots of shoppers from early morning through to mid-afternoon. Castel Sant Elmo stands high above and the area is easy walking distance from the ancient quarter.

It is in the core of Naples’ heart. It is a market on open sky. You can find fish shops, pizzerias, historical street food shops and historical bars. Don’t be worried to go and see. It is simply Naples.

Places like La Pignasecca are the authentic local places travellers should go in order to feel they have "seen" the city they are visiting and they have "met" the people. This is the sort of place we always look for so we can feel we...More

Wander off the main street of Via Toledo and you'll find this neighborhood area with all the local life going on. Everything from groceries to stores selling shoes, clothing and housewares. The streets are narrow and it's tight between the people and delivery vehicles. For...More
