San Gregorio Armeno

History

Saint Gregory the Armenian was born as a junction of two squares, in the ancient Greek city Neapolis. A street located in the historic center of Naples, famous all over the world for the many workshops dedicated to the crib art.

Along the road you can also visit the church of San Gregorio Armeno, founded in the tenth century and named after the saint. The beauty of this road reaches its maximum splendor during the Christmas period, when you walk among the lights and the cribs eating a warm “heart” of roasted chestnuts. In the workshops you can buy the shepherds and figurines depicting faces of famous Neapolitan and international characters: Pulcinella, Totò, footballers, television characters, singers and more!

Every hour is perfect to meet among the shops and the typical scenery of a royal crib, such as Via San Gregorio Armeno. Anyone who wants to fully grasp the essence and origins of this wonderful people can not fail to pass through the road that best conveys the feelings and charm of the ancient.

A few steps from San Gregorio there are the best pizzerias in the city. Anyone who comes to Naples can not miss the real Neapolitan pizza, with selected ingredients and top quality buffalo mozzarella with a unique flavor and inimitable. Finally after lunch it would be good to end everything with a great coffee that, as a typical Neapolitan song says “only in Naples can do it”, “solo a Napoli lo sanno fare.
