WHY RIONE SANITA' AND DECUMANI AREA?
La Sanità is one of the most vibrant areas of Napoli. It's a colorful, open-air market where the street vendors create stunning displays of fruits, vegetables, fish, and sweet treats. Rione Sanità is the place where you'll find small artisan shops, vibrant nightlife, street art and graffiti, and an international and multicultural community.
But we believe that it's impossible to have a complete visit of Napoli without exploring the Decumani District. Decumani (the old Roman street name ) is the historic part of the city. We lead you through the squares, streets, and past churches that still remain from Italy's largest and most important royal city.
