This street focuses exclusively on the old Napolitan christmas tradition "presepe". The crafters working in this street never ceases to astonish me with the amount of details put in these small pieces of art. With its location in the historical center the atmosphere is undoubtedly genuine and intimate.Recommended for:

The beautiful handicraft tradition of presepe (nativity scene) making is preserved on this street of artist's workshops, tucked into the historical center of Naples. These craftsman work year round, turning out everything from stunning angels to cartoon-like tiny replicas of soccer stars and political figures--lately I've seen the Obamas. Warning--the via is mobbed at holiday time--but it's still fun to elbow in there with the natives who are following an age-old Christmas tradition.
