SPACCANAPOLI – THE STREET THAT SPLITS NAPLES IN TWO
Since 1995 it’s a Unesco Site Heritage. We’re talking about the historical city centre of Naples, Italy . Spaccanapoli is actually the symbol of such achievement: it’s the name of the straight and narrow major road that passes through the old centre. The name literally means “Naples splitter” because this road appears to split the city in two parts from north to south.
Naples is actually the name that the greeks first gave to this city: Neapolis; after the Greeks, the city went under the Roman and then Byzantine influence, passing then from the Normans to the Renaissance era. This is basically what you see in the city : the Campania Region’s capital has been a stage of events, history and art spanning over twenty centuries . UNESCO considered them of universal value
Spaccanapoli is the primary boardwalk for vacationers as it offers accessibility to a variety of vital views of the city. The historical centre of Naples can only be uncovered by walking. Not only we strongly suggest to use the car solely if you are really an experienced driver. Above all, it’s the only way to get through narrow roads, pedestrian areas, tiny squares and window shopping along the oldest and most characteristic workshops. It’s from here, that you can reach Via San Gregorio Armeno, the road with the oldest and best nativity scene craftsmen of the world.
One of the most fascinating itinerary you can follow by walking is the one from Spaccanapoli to Via San Benedetto Croce, S. Biagio dei Librai and Vicaria . Along these road you will see churches, monuments craftsmen shops and of course pizza shops and well as tradizione reataurants. Another
