Christmas in Naples

WHERE: Naples, Italy
WHEN: from 06 November 2022 to 08 January 2023

Few cities in the world are able to evoke the spirit, art and tradition of Christmas … all year round.
Naples is certainly one of these.
A city in which the Crib is an art that has been handed down for generations. A tradition that has its roots in the eighteenth century.

San Gregorio Armeno is the beating heart of Christmas in Naples. The one that is universally recognized as the street of artisan shops and Cribs. Real works, unique in their kind. Small jewels.

Christmas in Naples is rediscovered along the streets of the historic center. San Gregorio Armeno is the starting point, or arrival point, of a suggestive walk through alleys, evocative views, splendid buildings and marvelous religious places. The decumani. The homonymous church, with the cloister and the splendid bell tower. Piazza del Gesù and San Domenico Maggiore….

And above all, a gastronomic tradition that translates into authentic masterpieces for the palate.
