Another amazing place in this wonderful City. We literally stumbled upon this huge square by walking up from the Santa Lucia area. It leads to the start of Toledo & all the lovely coffee shops & the Theatre. Simply beautiful!

This huge square free from traffic is sparse and surrounded by historic buildings that are too beautiful to ignore. The kids loved running around the huge square (not too many places you can do that in Naples) whilst we admired the majestic buildings and statues.
