The Colonnese Bookshop

A literary sanctuary.

Only for lovers of culture, art and history. At number 32 on a street named San Pietro a Maiella, you'll find the Colonnese bookshop. This shop is a sanctuary for world history, and for Neapolitan and Italian history in particular. As if it were the scene of a film, there is an endless amount of shelves inside the shop which hold the city's history in the form of literature. All kinds of old and modern books are included in their catalogue, as well as maps and other objects related to literature and the city of Naples. There is also a collection of second-hand books in the aisles among which you'll find all kinds of unlisted and limited edition works. A large part is related to history and art, but you'll also find literary gems here in all disciplines. If you are fond of these kinds of bookshops, this place is a must-visit on your trip round Naples.
