    Naples, who knew?

    Naples is a great town full of rich history! Please do not let stereotypes keep you from visiting this beautiful city!

    Insider Tip:Be prepared to walk! The metro does not run through most of city central but they are working on that. Buy the Arte Campania card if you are staying two to three days. It covers transportation and entry into lots of historical sites and museums.

    Naples, only for the surrounding treasures.

    There's no denying that Naples/Napoli is really not a nice place. It is dangerous, plagued with poverty, crime, graffiti, run down, stinks of urine and seems completely unloved. Certainly not a place worth visiting if it wasn't for the magnificent ancient history which surrounds it.

    Insider Tip:Only stay long enough to see the sites, then find somewhere nicer.

    FOOD, Food Food!!!

    Go to Starita Pizzeria. Best pizzeria in the world. The others are tourist traps. (but they are good too)

    Insider Tip:Horseback ride up the mountain, Pompei trip, and eat lots of local food.
