While strolling through Via Toledo we took a detour to walk though the narrow streets of Quartieri Spagnoli. While to some it may be dirty and not particularly attractive I really enjoyed people watching and seeing how the residents navigate and negotiate turns in the...More

Walk around here and buy bits for lunch - bread, fruit, meats, fish cheese - or just enjoy hustle and bustle of life in central naples. In this refined world of supermarkets it is unusual to find a living, real, original market that is not...More

I feel saddened when I read the negative reviews of this place. It is an area where people live and work it is not meant to be a Disneyland for tourists. Me and my wife, both in our 50s, spent a week here without feeling...More

Please do not try this with young children. The Spanish quarter is one of the most unsafe places in Naples, with very dirty, narrow streets. The quarter opens to Via Toledo and the difference between the two is striking. There a lot of cheap restaurants...More

We found this area after wandering around busy roads for hours. Thank goodness we did. Good atmosphere and lots to look at . Little cafes to be found around about too. Not good for children though as it is very busy
