An incredible Partheopean neighborhood of history, handicraft and taste
If you are going to Naples, you must stop at Spaccanapoli, one of the most famous streets of the Parthenopean city, located in the old part of Naples. There is so much to see, but we suggest to take a look at the churches in this area, such as the church of Gesù Nuovo, the church of Santa Chiara, the chapel of San Severo (where it is preserved the spectacular statue of the Veiled Christ) and the church of San Domenico Maggiore.
To get to Spaccanapoli you have to get the metro and get off at the stop Piazza Cavour, turn right and keep going towards the National Museum. Cross the street and continue in Via Santa Maria di Costantinopoli until Piazza Gesù Nuovo. The National Archeological Museum, only one blocks far from the metro station of Piazza Cavour, keeps mosaics and frescos from Pompei and Ercolano. You can also visit the metro station Neopolis, right under the same Museum.
At San Biagio dei Librai, dolls characteristic hospital is an interesting stop for the handicraft lovers. Four generations of doll doctors have kept alive this peculiar activity. After you all these hours walking around the city you would be definitely hungry, so it’s time to have a great pizza in a local pizzeria in Spaccanapoli. The most famous is Antica Pizzeria da Michele, in Via Cesare Sersale, on the way back to the train station.
How to get there:
By train: from the train station of Formia, get the train for Naples central.
