Shopping

Shopping

If you want to buy some typical, local handmade products, the ideal thing to do is to walk around the Quartieri Spagnoli: this area still has the highest number of old craftsmen’s shops. The sophisticated, expensive Capodimonte porcelain, cameos, and gouaches are particularly famous. The latter are small paintings that represent the most charming and characteristic Neapolitan views, which date back to the eighteenth century, when the first visitors wanted to take away a souvenir of the city.
Naples is also tied to the traditions of the tooling of leather goods, and items in gold and silver.
If you are interested in buying the famous nativity scene figurines made in terracotta, the best place to go is Via San Gregorio Armeno: here you can find all types of figurines, all made by hand.
All the great names of “Made in Italy” fashion can instead be found in the elegant area near the Riviera di Chiaia that includes Via Poerio, Piazza dei Martiri, Via Calabritto, Via dei Mille and Via Filangeri. There is a historical shop for Neapolitan male fashion in Piazza Vittoria: Marinella. It has been possible to buy shirts, pullovers, foulards and, most famously of all, ties in this shop since 1914. Some of the shop’s most loyal customers were Luchino Visconti and Aristotele Onassis, and also Gabriele d'Annunzio and Gianni Agnelli.
