Join us for a wonderful tour of this famous street in Naples, led by Raffaele Romano of Grand Tour Experience over Zoom! Known as “the street of the nativity scene makers,” it is filled with numerous shops selling creative nativity scenes and figurines (known in Italian as “presepe”). Raffaele will also take us around the city of Naples to see other delightful Italian Christmas sights. Don't miss it!
