Additional Location Information
The church/monastery of San Gregorio Armeno is in the heart of the historic center of Naples and has given its name to the street on which it is situated. In common parlance, that street is referred to as the street of the figurari,in reference to those who craft the popular figures and sets used in the typical Neapolitan Christmas manger scene, the presepe. The street is marked by the tower of the church belfry that actually spans the street, itself. It is from the 1700s and was built onto an earlier walkway above the street.
San Gregorio Armeno, with its shops, with its stalls, is the place of the Neapolitan Christmas, the obligatory destination of a sentimental walk to the search of a new piece to put on the crib. San Gregorio Armeno is the crossroad of the Christmas wonder. Also many young people have discovered the ancient art. The techniques are those of old times, but the systems of propaganda are changed. The crib continues to be an infallible judge of the affection of the Neapolitans: only who is very beloved, as Totò, Eduardo, Massimo Troisi, can appear close to Razzullo and Sarchiapone, to Benito, to the musicians. In the last years have appeared in the showcases and on the stalls the figurines of Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Lady Diana, even of the stylist Versace; nothing scandalous, because the crib tollerates everything. The famous street S. Gregorio Armeno takes its name from the homonym monasterial complex. Here it is the centre of production and sale of the shepherds. The little street is rich on both the sides of shops/laboratories that invade the road with stalls and various exhibitions. You can find everything: from the "rocks" (rock, is in the Neapolitan lexicon of the cribs the structure of the caves, the landscape) in bark of cork to the motor for the "rivers" and the fountains; from the lamp with battery to the bronze bascula; from the balcony in metal to the fruit in wax; from the minuscule shepherd (moschella) to the shepherd dressed in the XVIII style of half million and more... a true heaven for the presepistis.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Outstanding home away from home in old Napoli
The entire experience from initial contact with emanula to the booking, arrival and accomodation itself was first rate. We stayed in the big flat for 4 nights ...a sensational apartment in the heart of the historic centre of Naples . From the top bedroom there is a fantastic view of Mt Vesuvius and the from sun terrace off the third bedroom a lovely view of the bell tower and the duomo and terracotta rooftops of old Napoli. From the main bedroom you can gaze down and watch the hustle and bustle of the street stalls and children gathering in the square for school. Surrounded by great restaurants and shops this location does not disappoint and I would not hesitate in recommending it to anybody. thank you emanuela for your kindness and hospitality and welcoming us to your lovely apartment.

Good deal for two couples
Location and hospitality are the strengths of this property. It is is the middle of most attractions you would want to see. In the day time the presepio shops are noisy but all quiets down after 8:00 P.M. Then there is the congenial landlady who answers all questions, gives good information that is not prettied up. If a problem might be anticipated then she tells you so.
We are seasoned travelers and so was the other couple we shared the flat with--snug for four but we were all very pleased. It is nicely furnished and secure (at night you are behind three sets of strong doors). There are two levels to the unit--two bedrooms up with a bath and below one bedroom and bath with kitchen, living room, and foyer.
There is a paucity of water on the second level--sometimes for the pressure and sometimes for the temperature. But after a few days the upstairs couple would shower on the lower level. So that worked our fine.

Old Naples at its most magical
Our short stay at Emanuela's little flat was pure delight. She was helpful and hospitable and took time to make us feel comfortable and at home. The immaculate flat has a comfortable big bed, a sizable kitchen and a bonus sitting room-entry. It's only a half flight up!
It's not that close to major public transportation (the major flaw), but it is located in the throbbing heart of old Napoli, roughly between the Spaccanapoli and the Via Tribunali, both of which offer excellent snacking and dining. The region is pedestrian friendly and the alley abutting its palazzo location is filled with craftspeople producing the most amazing model landscapes you ever saw. Across the street, the nuns in the convent sing in the morning. I'd call it an urban paradise.

Great time in the historical centre of Naples at Sangregorio Fla
My wife and I recently had a week in the small Sangregorio Flat in the historical centre of Naples. The unit is located on quirky Via San Gregorio armeno on which there is always something happening and something interesting to look at. The flat is fantastic and met all of our expectations. It is in a great location within easy walking distance to the main historical sites and churches and also to restaurants, bars, shopping and entertainment. We loved Naples and had easy day trips to Pompeii, Sorrento and Isle of Capri. We say thanks to Emanuela for her help, knowledge and courtesy during our stay. We will be back.
Une excellente adresse
L'appartement est idéalement situé dans le quartier de Spaccanapoli. Il est aménagé et décoré avec goût par une propriétaire charmante, très soucieuse du confort de ses clients. Bien que situé dans un quartier très vivant, il est également très calme. Nous y avons passé un très agréable séjour et nous le recommandons sans aucune hésitation.
What a magnificent location!
We had a fabulous holiday in Naples and the apartment was a great base. It was sunny, very clean and with all the amenities we needed. The beds were comfortable and the area nice and quiet. There's a lots of information provided about the local area, and how to get into the centre of the town, where the flat is. There were very good restaurants just round the corner, as well as cafè and supermarkets. San Gregorio armeno is one of the most picturesque street in Naples. Thanks to Emmanuela (the owner).

Vivi un paradiso a Napoli
È ormai una tradizione andare con la mia famiglia all'ombra del Vesuvio. Dopo quattro anni siamo tornati nella stessa casa, nel cuore della Napoli più antica a un passo dal Duomo. La sua posizione è ideale! A due passi da via dei Tribunali, uno dei decumani della città popolato da bottegucce dove si compra buon vino, ottima frutta e verdura, si gustano babà mitici, e poi il pesce, le mozzarelle e quant'altro rende Napoli speciale. Facevamo le spese tornando da lunghe passeggiate, ed era bello girare nel caos di San Gregorio, ammirando le statuine dei maestri dei presepi. Una volta dentro il cortile si respirava un'aria tranquilla, pronti per cominciare.
L'appartamento è affascinante: arredato per il maggior confort con amore e attenzione ai dettagli, mette a disposizione una bella raccolta di libri su Napoli e dintorni, due CD con una scelta originale di canzoni partenopee, l'elenco dei ristoranti consigliati, oltre al necessario per cucinare, la televisione a ogni piano, la connessione wi-fi, la lavatrice, l'aria condizionata ecc. Emanuela è una padrona di casa molto gentile, attenta e disponibile.
La comodità della casa, che offre tre camere, un cucinotto dove nulla manca, due bagni, salotto e un terrazzino delizioso, è dovuta anche alla divisione in due piani, che consente agli ospiti di godere una notevole privacy. I colori viola dei copriletto si esaltano con delle lucine messe sopra i letti, e la vista panoramica mozzafiato sul Vesuvio e tutti e tetti della città varrebbe da sola il soggiorno! Mi piaceva tanto svegliarmi, aprire l'abbaino del tetto mansardato e respirare l'aria di Napoli!
Consiglio vivamente questo flat a tutti! L'unico punto debole sono le scale con tanti scalini molto alti, ma fra poco l'ascensore, in fase di installazione, eliminerà anche questa barriera. Peccato, però: con tutte le pasticcerie meravigliose che ci sono attorno e che allietavano ogni ritorno a casa, ho sempre ricordato con gratitudine questa salita!
Stylish flat in a great location in the old city centre. Three nicely appointed bedrooms on two levels, functional bathrooms, well-equipped kitchen. On the top floor, work underway to install an elevator, for the time being be prepared to take the stairs, actually not a bad thing considering the cakes, ice-creams and other treats you are inevitably going to have. Close to shops, cafes and good restaurants, at walking distance to the main train station, port and major sights. Naples is stunning and the flat is an excellent base to go and explore it all.
