Christmas 2014 in Naples

The link between the tradition of the Nativity and Naples is so exclusive that the term “Neapolitan crib” is now a reality in itself.

The city of Naples is rich in artistic and natural beauty and that of the Christmas market can be a great excuse to visit the city as a whole.
During the month of December, in the heart of the city are also organized traditional markets scattered around the city streets and magnificent live nativity in Piazza San Gaetano.
A must visit is the Church of San Lorenzo Maggiore, which houses walnut shells in which are reconstructed tiny cribs.

Walking on foot to the city center, in addition to traditional lighting artist depicting scenes from the nativity scene and the typical Christmas decorations such as comets and reindeer this year have been some innovations in the images presented. First, there will be some great lights that retract the face of the beloved Massimo Troisi, one of the symbols of our Naples, and others who represent the face of the great Toto, another pillar of our artistic history.
But it does not end here, because for the first time, raising his head during a walk in the old town, you will also see the face of Maradona, the Argentine soccer player-from Naples who has done so much to dream Neapolitan fans.

All foreign visitors are surprised when they visit Naples in the holidays: the downtown streets, those of the markets and craft shops are so crowded during the Christmas holidays that it’s almost impossible to walk, to the point that enter into force on the direction of travel for pedestrians!
