Via San Gregorio Armeno, Street of Nativity Workshops in Naples, Italy

Pictures of shops, figures, and Christmas cribs

By

Via San Gregorio Armeno, in the heart of Naples' old town, is often called the street of nativity workshops. Lining the narrow pedestrian street are artisan workshops making nativity scenes (presepi in Italian) and terra cotta figures. Tiny shops sell Christmas crib figurines and souvenirs, ranging from very high quality to inexpensive.

Presepe, or nativity scenes, are an important part of Christmas in Italy and are often very elaborate, including more than just the basic Christmas crib. Via San Gregorio Armeno is one of the best places to buy nativities and figures for them. See Italian Nativity Scenes for more.

Enjoy our pictures of Via San Gregorio Armeno and the Nativity scene from Santa Chiara Church, then take a look at more Naples Nativity Pictures, most of them taken on a Neapolitan Christmas Traditions walk given by Context Travel Walking Tours.
