Hotel Il Convento: Touristic areas
This street carries the name of the viceroy of Naples from the years 1532 to 1553 who made the city open an ambitious square of development and reorganization. It has a concept as a fifth and a prestigious zone to walk in, Via Toledo, since its birth, was characterized as the presence of the wealthy residences. The buildings, like the Palazzo Doria d’Angri (1755) and the Palazzo Carafa di Maddaloni (1582), are interspersed throughout the churches (for example the Chiesa di San Nicola della Carità, until the end of the 17th century), stores, banks and cafés.
The shopping offers opportunities for all kinds of tastes and price ranges. One can stop by Gay Odin for its famous chocolate, or have a fantastic sfogliatella at Pintauro where the Prince of Metternich had his first “official” outing in Naples as a guest of the king.
