Naples’ ancient streets

A display of narrow streets, Spaccanapoli was planned in ancient times, and it includes Via Benedetto Croce, Via San Biagio dei Librai and Via Vicaria Vecchia. Spaccanapoli is right in the heart of Centro Storico, essentially splitting the city in two - hence the name, which means “split Napoli.”

Spaccanapoli boasts a number of important attractions, like the church of Gesù Nuovo, and the church of Santa Chiara. Shopping in the area is very rewarding too: a number of small shops, featuring everything from souvenirs to designer fashion.
