  • Big open space with a church on one side and a palace on the other. It was mostly empty on Sat Dec 23rd, 2017. The church has all three types of columns, ionic, doric & cortinthian, if you know the difference.
  • One of the best place in Naples. Full of history and legends! Must to go!
  • Dog 🐶 piss and poo 💩 everywhere, graffiti. Spoils an amazing piece of architecture. People who are doing the graffiti and allow their dogs to foul here should be ashamed. I was very disappointed.
  • Wonderful historical sites, near sea port, always be aware of your surroundings, and enjoy the delicious cuisine!
  • Large open space. We were lucky to find it when the local people were celebrating dressed in traditional outfits, dancing and generally having fun. Not sure what it's like at other times.
