Crazy, chaotic and shoes galore, Poggioreale Market, Mercatino di Poggioreale (also known as Mercato Caramanico) is Naples largest open-air market. Known as Il Mercatino delle Scarpe, the Shoe Market by some and Shoe Alley by others, you’ll find great deals on boots, shoes, handbags, and much more. Not for the faint of heart however, get there early because it can get very crowded and plan to spend several hours wandering the market’s 566 stalls. And if you find yourself in need of some reinforcements, vending trucks are on hand for water, caffe and snacks.

Passionate about my adopted home, for me Naples is the perfect canvas. From its breathtaking vistas to its rich cultural heritage, I could live here a lifetime and never see it all, photograph it all, or write about it all.
