Many years ago in this place you will be able to buy attributes to your Christmas crib. Now we have some awful statues from wood, toilet paper with picture of your opponent's logo... As same as Italian this street is full of joy and daub

The street is lined with small shops and they may be closed on Sundays and holidays. I would suggest emailing your hotel and inquiring there.
