A visit to Naples is not complete without seeing its great markets. Over 60 markets offer a variety of local and international goods. The bustling atmosphere, the colors, the smells, and the kind sellers will give you an authentic, delicious, and affordable Italian experience.

The picturesque and well-known Pignasecca market is located in the Spanish quarter of Naples, behind the lively Via Toledo. This is the oldest market in the city and a real folklore experience. The selection of fresh products in the market is vast: fish, vegetables, fruits, street foods, pastries, and local sweets. There is also a nice selection of handmade clothes and shoes as well as souvenirs, antiques, CDs, and more. All the goods in the market are reasonably priced but can also be bargained.

In the Piganske market, there are many options to eat. The local restaurants and stalls will offer you a spectacular variety of traditional pasta, exotic seafood, locally produced cheeses, fine wines, and various delicacies that caress your palate. The pizzas in the market are fantastic. They are rich in toppings and sauce and made with thin and crispy dough.

You can take advantage of the tour in the area to visit the streets of the Spanish Quarter of Naples, the nearby Via Toledo, and the beautiful churches of Santa Maria di Montesanto and San Nicola alla Carità. You can also continue to leave the area by cable car (Funicular), so you will get to see the fantastic views of the city from above.
