Spaccanapoli is always full of people, especially tourists, restaurants, souvenir shops and churches. The only negative is that it is, unfortunately, not so clean at some places.

We were there rather late, several evenings, and many shops were still open. Different shops close at different times, but restaurants, bars, dessert bakeries, etc. were open late. Hope this helps.
