Cross the ancient city


Wander Spaccanapoli, the ancient Roman-era quarter, which splits the city in two in its classic, historic centre.

In Spaccanapoli, plunge into one of the most characteristic and animated neighbourhoods of Naples' historic centre. Consisting, really, of only two streets, via Benedetto Croce and via San Biagio dei Librai, Spaccanapoli bisects the city. From each side, wander the narrow side streets and gaze upon the many palazzos, churches, cloisters and chapels, boutiques, arts and crafts shops, and trattorias. A must-see: the Piazza del Gésu Nuovo with its monumental church and its ‘Spire of the Immaculate Conception', which date from the 16th century.
