How to visit the Quartieri Spagnoli of Naples in complete safety? The Spanish Quarters are an area of the city of Naples very close to the most central streets and squares of the city. Besides Piazza Plebiscito, the Spanish Quarters are close to one of the shopping streets, via Toledo, and the historic centre.

Indeed, even if this area is always crowded with tourists and travelers from all over the world, it remains one of the most authentic in the city. In addition to being able to choose to participate in a specific tour of the Spanish Quarters, from today it is also possible to rely on specialized municipal tutors.
