Nice little square with pretty good atmosphere. Defo worth a quick sit down and coffee just to rest up a bit.

Was buzzing with activity, lots of restaurants, bars & souvenir shops nearby. This was in the afternoon, so should be more lively in the evening.

With it’s Church, Spire, Restaurants and proximity to the University district, this is understandably a busy and vibrant part of the City. The Spire is of particular interest as it is the only one of the Three Spires in Naples that can truly claim to...More
