A big crowd and lots of noise, but wasn't much to see. Would recommend finding other locations nearer the water with better views of the bay and Vesuvius.

On our last trip to Naples my girlfriend and I walked close to Piazza del Plebiscito several times, as it is located on the way from Via Toledo to the "lungomare", the street leading to Castel dell'Ovo and next to the sea. The square itself...More

The square is very large and located near other interesting sites and a short walk from the beach. Surrounding architecture is fantastic.

It is a very nice place, full of people living their normal life (a typical Mediterranean square full of locals). It reminds me of St. Peter's Square in Rome but the buildings are pretty different: Palazzo Real full of Spanish Coat of Arms and Neoclassical...More
