No doubt that Naples, Italy, is noisy, crowded, chaotic, dirty, some may say even dangerous place. For the very same reason is many tourists skipping Napels, when visiting Pompeii, the coast or the island nearby.
I think not spending time in Naples is a mistake that many people make. Yes, Naples is noisy. Yes, it is crowded. Yes, it is chaotic and dirty. And yes, it still can be called a dangerous city. But amongst all its chaos and madness, it is an authenticity to the city, you wouldn’t find other places.
Spaccanapoli is the straight and narrow main street that traverses the old, historic center of the city of Naples, Italy. The name is a popular usage and means, literally, “Naples splitter”. The name is derived from the fact that it is very long and from above it seems to divide that part of the city.
