Visiting Naples

With a population of just over one million people, Naples is Italy’s third largest city. Situated in the southern half of the country, this is the capital of Campania and the Naples Province.

    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.

    Naples

    Honestly, one of the dirtiest citites Ive ever visited. Youre better off doing day trips out of there so you dont have to spend so much time there.

    Dirty, but loveable.

    A bit of some background information, I come from NJ, USA. The beginning of my trip found me in cities that were extremely polished. Walking into Naples and seeing litter felt like home for a bit. I loved it. The city is nice, a lot of shops and eateries to cater to nearly all your whims. And a decent night life.

    Insider Tip:If you are looking to go out at night, look for the town square.

    Stay somewhere else

    I didn't do my research about Naples and wish I would have taken the advice of those that said not to stay there. The entire city is filled with graffiti, even the cities statues and landmarks. It is a really busy city with not much to enjoy as far as ambiance. The streets are dirty and the drivers are crazy (especially the mopeds).

Italy: Itinerary

Forgotten by too many travellers when visiting Italy as it is more commonly known for its fashion and rather than its culture, Milan is somewhere you should stick on your itinerary. Granted, it can be slightly more brazen than other Italian cities, but it also has some breathtaking architecture and intriguing museums.
