The Third Street South area is a hub of activity both during the day and for nightlife. Originally the center of Old Naples with some of the oldest buildings in town now turned into stylish boutiques, top restaurants, art galleries and lots of interesting shops. Campiello’s Ristorante is located in the Mercantile Building which dates back to 1929 when Naples was a sleepy fishing village.
The scene is much different now with Campiello’s offering an outdoor terrace for alfresco dining, an island bar for mingling and exceptional food and service. (Go there for lunch and/or dinner. Then add your own comments and review on this website.)
Tommy Bahama’s place is here, too, and is very popular throughout the year offering not only a full restaurant and bar in their relaxed island style, but they have a men’s clothing store and a dedicated women’s clothing and accessory store.
Plan on spending some time working your way down one side of the street and back up the other so you don’t miss anything. The shopping includes art, exquisite antiques, gifts, jewelry, interior design, clothing and fashion with Jami’s, the Island Company store and Marissa.
The location is very close to The Naples Pier so it’s easy to combine a sunset celebration on the pier and then walk over to 3rd Street South. Take it all in, decide which restaurant suits you that evening and then top it off with more strolling. You might pass by the historic Palm Cottage which is the oldest house in Naples dating back to 1895 and is a landmark on the National Historic Register.
