A 2-0 win over relegated Sampdoria was little more than a hors-d'oeuvre before the real reason fans jammed into the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona -- to see their team lift the trophy for the first time in 33 long years.
Victor Osimhen opened the scoring from the penalty spot midway through the second half, the 26th league strike of a stunning season which made him Serie A's all-time top African scorer.
Giovanni Simeone made sure the hosts would finish the season on 90 points with a stunning long-range strike before celebrating by holding up a Napoli shirt worn by icon and compatriot Maradona.
Spalletti will be on gardening leave for a year while still under contract with Napoli, and he will return to his Tuscan vineyard the oldest ever coach to win the Scudetto at 64 years old.
Napoli's title triumph was the crowning glory of Spalletti's long and eventful coaching career which had brought plenty of plaudits but few trophies.
Fans will be hoping that whoever takes Spalletti's place will be able to utilise the hugely talented squad assembled by outgoing sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli.
Fabio Quagliarella was honoured by his fellow Napoli supporters in his final match in Italy's top flight on an emotional day for the Samp captain.
- Quagliarella tears -
Napoli fans considered him an enemy when he left for hated rivals Juventus after just one season in 2010,
unaware until years later that a bizarre stalking plot had forced his departure.
The 40-year-old, who has scored 182 Serie A goals, openly blubbed after being given a plaque by supporters who also unfurled a banner in the stands which said "you will never be forgotten by your people".
He was then given a rousing round of applause and hugs from opposition players when he was substituted in the final moments of a procession for Napoli.
Quagliarella may continue his playing career next season as under new ownership and with bankruptcy no longer looming Samp try to return to the top flight.
