Via dei Tribunali (Tribunal Street), Naples

Tribunal Street was the main east-west street during Greek and Roman times. Tribunal Street runs parallel to Spaccanapoli Street and is a vital thoroughfare with a myriad of landmarks.

Tribunal Street is over half a mile long and home to over 20 important churches such as the Naples Cathedral. The ancient street runs from the San Pietro a Maiella Church to the former main Naples courthouse, hence the Tribunal name.

Visitors can also find the San Lorenzo Maggiore Basilica and Monumental Complex on Tribunal Street. Ancient market ruins are visible underneath the complex. Visitors can also access the impressive Naples Underground from Tribunal Street.

As you stroll the cobblestone street, admire the decaying palaces of Naples' nobility.

During the day, visitors can shop at various markets and boutiques. At night, the street comes alive and is the place to go to taste Neapolitan culinary delights.

The street is open for vehicles, so watch out for the stream of mopeds and cars passing by.
