Via Anticaglia

Nook of Naples: Via Anticaglia is the street at the heart of Greco-Roman Naples. The walls on either side are part of what once was a bathhouse and a theater that could hold up to 8,000 spectators.

Walking by shops and apartments with overhead laundry, I found a store that sold precepe as well as a map of ancient Greco-Roman Naples. The paper looked old, but the cartographer clearly took modern artistic license; nobody knows exactly what the ancient city looked like.
