This area was close to our B&B and we walked in looking for a travel agent. After eating some lunch we stolled along the street from Toledo to Duomo. Plenty of shops. Some Piazzas. Good people watching.

An amazing place full of life & lots of beautiful churches. It is the start of a long street that takes you back in time- to see how was life 200 years ago albeit, without the smells. Must see.

The narrow and crowded streets of this old part of Naples is worth squeezing through just for the feel of it all and the vibe but watch your pockets. Lots of shops and churches cheek by jowl, the churches often in states of disrepair.

Spaccanapoli is a main street in the historic centre of Napoli. It's just fun to walk along the crowded lane and observe the street life (the same can be said of much of Napoli): the vespas (motor bikes), the street vendors, the lovers, the tourists,...More

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.
