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. Due to its location on the Bay of Naples, which is overlooked by Mount Vesuvius, it is a great city to visit.

    Naples Nightlife

    I spent 16 nights in Naples doing what locals do, Eating Pizza, drinking in various bars, squares and at outdoor DJ sets until 3/4.00am There was a steady range of DJ music venues with local none English speaking Italians enjoying music expressions and generally just hanging out :)

    Insider Tip:I do not speak Italian, but was fortunate to link up with cool Italians who were safe and spoke English. So travelling around to these different venues was safe for me. I was advised not to attempt negotiation of the city at night alone as Italian and non Italians were vulnerable to attacks in certain areas.

    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.

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.
